Fans ‘work out’ who Rat is on The Masked Singer
Viewers have been speculating about the identity of Rat in this year’s edition of The Masked Singer UK.
The captivating show, known for its iconic chant ‘take it off!’, is back with an exciting new roster of costumed celebrities.
In this series, celebrities compete against each other in impressive musical performances, while their identities remain concealed behind extravagant masks and costumes.

One of this year’s contestants is Rat and there’s been lots of speculation over who is behind the mask.
In the first episode, Rat teased a cryptic clue: “There is no regret when I say what I say because all I’ve achieved, I’ve given away.”
We also saw a RAT10 F4 number plate and a note labelled ‘Laundrette service wash’.
Following Rat’s performance of Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom by Vengaboys, some viewers thought they had worked out who is in the costume.
“Rat is Denise welch and I won’t be told otherwise” one declared on Twitter.
Another agreed: “rat is 100% denise welch!” while a third posted: “Rat sounds like Denise Welch to me but clues dont add up”
However Rat won their sing-off in the episode meaning they remain unmasked for now.
