Who is Duck on The Masked Singer UK?

The competition is hotting up on The Masked Singer UK and during the latest episode, another celebrity was been revealed to the public.

Hosted by comedian Joel Dommett, the show sees celebrities compete against each other in the ultimate singing competition – however, their identities are hidden by extravagant masks and costumes.

After each performance, the panel, made up of Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Ken Jeong, take a wild guess as to who they think is hiding underneath the mask.

Previously, the celebrities have been split into groups for their battle rounds, however, this week all of the remaining celebrities took to the stage. Kelly and Sharon Osbourne also made a guest appearance on the panel, standing in for Ken Jeong this week.

The latest show was packed with incredible performances and even more random clues which appeared to cement some of the celebrities’ identities, yet confused us about the identity of others.

Despite her sensational performances, sadly it was Duck’s turn to be unmasked.

But who is Duck?

Duck has been one of the hardest celebrities to identify, with popular guesses including Denise Lewis and Dame Kelly Holmes. However, Duck turned out to be none other than Skunk Anansie’s Skin!

Clues relating to Skin included having 850,000 people sing happy birthday to her and the fact that she once sang happy birthday to someone “legendary” (Nelson Mandela no less!).

Describing the show in three words, Skin called it “pure unadulterated lunacy”. She also revealed that keeping her role on the show secret has been very easy as she is a good secret keeper.

“I love keeping secrets and this was a joyous one to keep. I’ve been on tour with my band and I’ve been practicing to myself and they have no idea, none whatsoever, that I’m doing this.”

So far this series, Butterfly was revealed to be Eastenders star Patsy Palmer, Pharaoh was former Home Secretary Alan Johnson, Chameleon was unveiled as The Darkness singer Justin Hawkins, Tree was footballer Teddy Sheringham, and Daisy was global superstar Kelis.

The Masked Singer UK continues next Saturday on ITV, where the remaining five celebrities will be competing in the semi-final. With the competition hotting up, will the panel be any closer to identifying who’s behind the mask?

Another TWO celebrities will be unmasked next week – we can’t wait!
