Who is Traffic Cone on The Masked Singer? Their true identity has been officially revealed!
The Masked Singer UK’s third series kicked off this weekend on ITV.
The celebrity guessing game sees celebs compete to put on a show-stopping musical performance all while hiding their identity.
One act on the show for 2022 is Traffic Cone who was unmasked this weekend.
Who is Traffic Cone on The Masked Singer?
In the semi-final, Traffic Cone was eliminated and took off their mask to reveal classical singer and presenter Aled Jones.
On signing up for the show, Aled said: “It looked like fun and a chance to challenge myself with songs I’d never normally sing!”
He added: “I love Traffic Cone! The best costume and character. He became real! He was a fun loving character with massive feet! It was very sweaty inside that costume though and hard to dance ‘cos I couldn’t see my feet!”
Traffic Cone’s first performance saw them singing Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up. In Week 2, Traffic Cone performed When She Loved Me by Sarah McLachlan. In Week 3, Traffic Cone performed Back For Good by Take That while Week Four saw them singing A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman. This week, Traffic Cone performed Rupert Holmes’ Escape (The Pina Colada Song).
In their VT packages, Traffic Cone said the shape of their outfit represented something “close to their heart”. Saying they wanted to “bring the party”, Traffic Cone has also dropped hints to music, £10 notes, performing for a “power couple” and living a “double life” with an “alter ego”.
Sharing a cryptic clue with the panel, Traffic Cone said: “I made my money taking my top off.”
Giving two lies and a truth, Traffic Cone revealed: “I had a gold plated childhood”, “My name makes me king but I’m no rascal”, “It’s often been said that I’m a stand up fella”.
The panel’s guesses had included Shane Richie, Russell Watson, Bradley Walsh and Rob Brydon.
However many viewers had correctly guessed it was Aled behind the mask.
“Traffic Cone is none other than Mr Aled Jones – could hear his voice clear as anything #MaskedSingerUK”, one wrote.
Another agreed: “I’m getting Aled Jones vibes from Traffic Cone. None of the clues make sense. Just going on this vocal performance. #MaskedSingerUK”
