Who is Rhino on The Masked Singer has been revealed in this weekend’s final.
The Masked Singer 2023 concluded this Saturday night on ITV1.
The celebrity guessing game sees famous faces fight on the stage while hiding their identity with help from incredible masks.
One character on the series for 2023 was Rhino who impressed the panel in the opening episode with their vocals singing Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars. Other performances have included I Just Can’t Wait To Be King from The Lion King and Ariana Grande’s Into You.
Who is Rhino on The Masked Singer?
In the final, Rhino was crowned the winner and took off their mask to reveal Busted star Charlie Simpson.
He said: “It was amazing to make it into the final. The whole thing seems like a bit of a blur looking back.
“I never expected to win to be honest but I just wanted to give it my best. I had no idea who I was actually up against and didn’t really hear the other people sing as we were kept away from each other during filming.”
Rhino said in their clue packages that he’s a “fun kind of fella” and “It’s my job to maintain law and order”. There were also clues including cobalt and three arrows while Rhino said they have taken on two icons at the same time and won.
And in the first episode, Rhino shared a cryptic riddle: “I’m chief of this town and happy-go-lucky, but one of you guys might think I’m quite muggy”.
Guesses from the panel correctly included Charlie Simpson as well as James Arthur, Rylan, James Blunt and Russell Brand.
Viewers also worked out who Rhino was before they took off their mask.
“That’s gotta be Charlie Simpson from Busted. #Rhino #MaskedSingerUK,” one fan wrote confidently on Twitter.
Another commented: “Charlie Simpson – sounds just like him and the muggy reference could be referring to busted’s first album cover which looked like their mugshots”
A third agreed: “Rhino is Charlie Simpson. No doubt in my mind #TheMaskedSinger” while a fourth declared: “All my years of Busted fandom led me to this moment – Rhino is Charlie Simpson #MaskedSingerUK”
The Masked Singer UK airs on ITV1.
