The Masked Singer viewers’ detective work was thrown into a completely different direction on Saturday night thanks to a clue about travelling the world.
Since the very start of the new series back on Boxing Day, there have been two names that just won’t go away when it comes to who is in the Sausage costume – Sheridan Smith and Stacey Solomon.
And while plenty of fans and bookies see it as a two horse race between those two – with Sheridan the red hot favourite thanks to clues eluding to her being on Two Pints of Lager and being in Legally Blonde the Musical, some Masked Singer viewers are now switching their prediction to singer turned ‘cruising’ queen Jane McDonald.
On Saturday night’s episode, before singing a cover of Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive, Sausage talked about the fact she’d had the opportunity to travel to a number of countries, before listing a few of them.
That fell firmly on the radar of people who recognised that Jane, who shot to fame in the 90s on hit BBC docu soap The Cruise, is now famous for having her own Channel 5 show Cruising with Jane McDonald, which won her a BAFTA a few years ago.
And the travel clue tied in with the fact that Sausage sang Lisa Stansfield’s Around The World on last Saturday’s episode.
Putting Jane’s name firmly in the frame, one viewer tweeted: “Sausage is Jane McDonald #MaskedSingerUK all that travel talk,” and another posted: “Sausage and chips = Jane McDonald, she’s been around the world.”
Others said they would love it if Jane ended up being Sausage, while others thought she could be Dragon and Fell In Love With A Boy and You Had Me singer Joss Stone’s name was also thrown into discussion for Sausage.
