This year’s lineup of masked celebrities has set tongues wagging, with viewers particularly curious about the identity of one contestant – Air Fryer.

In this unique musical extravaganza, celebrities face off in a battle of vocal prowess while their identities remain shrouded in mystery, concealed by spectacular costumes and masks.

One of this year’s contestants is a giant kitchen contraption, complete with a light up face.

In their first episode, Air Fryer performed Kings & Queens by Ava Max.

Clues included a pair of scissors, possibly a hint to her role as bearded lady Lettie Lutz in the musical film.

Other clues in the first episode were links to baking, a potential reference to Keala’s role in Waitress The Musical.
