Who is Poodle on The Masked Singer? Their true identity has been revealed in the latest episode.
The Masked Singer 2022 was back on ITV this evening with its second episode.
The celebrity guessing game sees celebs sing-off to put on the best musical performance while concealing their identities.
One of the masked acts on this year’s series is Poodle.
Who is Poodle on The Masked Singer?
In the fifth episode this weekend, Poodle was unmasked as Keane lead singer Tom Chaplin.
Speaking after his exit, Tom said: “I’ve got to a point in my life where I don’t take myself too seriously anymore. I think that’s pretty important if you’re going to dress up as a seven foot multicoloured poodle.
“I’ve also become much more interested in embracing different challenges – being in a band is like living on a little island, so it’s good to try things that are out of your comfort zone!”
For their first song, Poodle performed Elton John’s Rocket Man. In week two they performed What’s New Pussycat? by Tom Jones. In Week 3, Poodle performed Natasha Bedingfield classic Unwritten.
In their VT packages, Poodle described themselves as glamorous and flamboyant as they were seen in first a beauty salon and then on a dog obstacle course. Poodle said they were “no stranger to a dog collar”. There were also references to Queens, maths, newspaper headlines, Christmas and painting.
Sharing a cryptic clue, Poodle said: “I once went on a very long walkies.”
In Week 2, Poodle gave the panel two lies and a truth: “I might be fancy but I’m not afraid to busk it”, “I’ve been known for being hazel cerulean and ultra lilac”, “I have to admit I do love to be idolised”.
The panel’s guesses included Mika, Rylan, Adam Lambert, Rylan and Paul O’Grady.
The Masked Singer season 3 airs Saturday nights on ITV.
More characters on the series in 2022 are Traffic Cone, Panda, Rockhopper, Lionfish, Firework, Mushroom, Robobunny, Snow Leopard, Chandelier, Bagpipes and Doughnuts.
