Bush Baby won fans over (Picture: ITV)
We’re only three weeks into this series of The Masked Singer, but fans are already hooked as they try to work out the identities of the mystery stars – including Bush Baby.
Sophie Ellis Bextor, Mel B, and Martine McCutcheon have already been unmasked, but there are plenty of celebs left to guess.
Here’s what we know about the mysterious Bush Baby so far…
What clues have been given about Bush Baby?
Fans were introduced to Bush Baby when he took to the stage to perform Delilah by Tom Jones. Hints given so far include:
- He speaks with an Australian accent (although it could be fake as he said he was good at accents)
- He’s a ‘nocturnal creature’
- He’s ‘cheeky and full of mischief’
- There’s a connection to magic and boxing
- It’s not his first competition
- He wears a fez
- ‘A lot of my wardrobe has been seen on-screen’
- There’s been a lot of Abba references
- Cookery clues have been in abundance – it may be a celebrity chef
So, who could Bush Baby be?
Brian’s the most popular guess so far (Picture: WireImage)
Some fans are convinced comedian Brian Conley is behind the mask.
He’s performed magic on The Brian Conley Show, has been to Australia for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, and has competed in Strictly Come Dancing.

Also a famous Aussie, Mark has previously competed in Dancing On Ice.
The Neighbours star has most recently been spending time out of the limelight, and living as a farmer in the Welsh countryside – hence the animals in the VT?

MasterChef star John is another popular guess, with the chef having appeared on BBC’s The Magicians.
Plus, he’s another famous Aussie.
Dynamo has addressed the rumours (Picture: Getty Images)
Clearly taken with the magician clue, Rita guessed Dynamo – and the star actually responded to the rumours.
‘I’m not saying I’m the BushBaby, but have you ever seen me and BushBaby in the same room at the same time..’ he tweeted.
Could Matt Lucas be the Bush Baby? (Picture: Brian J Ritchie/Hotsauce/REX)
Matt Lucas’s name has popped up several times over, largely due to the similarities between the outfit the Bush Baby wears and a former costume of Matt’s.
He starred as George Dawes on Shooting Stars, a giant baby who was dressed in a similar onesie to the one the Masked Singer wears on the show.

All of the food references seem to point to it being a chef behind the mask – but could Jamie have gone from Naked Chef to Bush Baby?
Consider us intrigued.
