Who is the Alien on The Masked Singer?
Sophie Ellis-Bextor was revealed as the Alien in episode one on Boxing Day 2020.
The Masked Singer viewers could not believe that the hit singer was on the show, but were then disappointed she left in week one.
Sophie later took to Instagram celebrating her time on the show and said: “Yes so as most of you guessed it was me.
“Even my one year old pointed at the telly and shouted ‘mummy!’ when I started singing in the alien suit – funny as I thought I’d done a good job with disguising my voice!”

What were the fan theories on Alien?
In the VT prior to Sophie’s first performance, Alien said: “Greeting earthlings, I am the Alien.
“I have travelled faster than the speed of light
She also said that she had come to our planet in ‘spectacular fashion’.
She added: “From space, earth looks like a tony toy, and all the people on it are models.
“I have undertaken this independent exploration of your planet.
“My mission – to spread joy, love and glitter. Tonight, I hope the audience are ready for their first encounter with an alien.”
Judge Jonathan Ross thought that Alien is Brenda Blethyn from Vera, while Rita Ora believed it to be Sophie Dahl.
Alien’s last clue was: “I have never been invaded, but I have been part of an epic battle.”
Many people on Twitter already guessed that Alien was Sophie, with one writing: “I think Alien is Sophie Ellis Bextor disguising her voice. The “epic battle” was the chart race with Posh Spice”.
