Hedgehog on The Masked Singer revealed

Who is Hedgehog on The Masked Singer? Their identity was officially confirmed in Saturday’s final show.


New series The Masked Singer sees a cast of celebs compete to put on the best musical performance all while hiding their identity behind elaborate masks and costumes.

One of the characters on the show was Hedgehog, a homely creature who is most active at night.

Clues on the show to Hedgehog’s identity included him being more introverted than people might expect, a self-confessed workaholic and that he once had a job that meant he died at 8.30 every night.

Hedgehog finished as runner up of The Masked Singer, losing out to Queen Bee in the final.

Jason Manford had proved a popular guess with both viewers and the show’s panel, made up of Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Ken Jeong.


Speaking about the speculation on ITV’s Good Morning Britain previously, Jason had denied he was a part of the show. He said: “I don’t want to spoil the show by saying no but – no.

“My own kids asked me as well!”

However fans of the show weren’t convinced by Jason’s denial.

One wrote on Twitter: “You sit on a throne of masked lies Jason Manford.. If he’s not hedgehog then I’m questioning everything I’ve ever been told”

Other popular guesses for Hedgehog’s identity had included Michael Ball and Alfie Boe.

The Masked Singer UK aired Saturday nights on ITV.

Further celebrities who took part in the first series included Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts – who won as Queen Bee – and third place classical singer Katherine Jenkins, who was Octopus.


It’s been reported that the show will return for a second series.

The latest episode had over 6 million viewers, making it the most watched show of Saturday night.
