In the first episode, Lion Fish surprised the panel with an operatic performance of Nessun Dorma. In Week 2, Lion Fish performed Dolly Parton’s I Will Always Love You.

In their clue packages, Lionfish was seen standing at a microphone in a club with German and French translations on screen. The VTs also featured yellow cabs and a fighter jet.

Giving the panel a cryptic clue, Lion Fish said: “I’ve appeared in places I’ve never been.”

In week two, Lion Fish offered up two lies and a truth: “Things I have done have been called extreme”, “I know how to make a very good point” and “These fins have made waves by spinning discs.”

Both Jonathan Ross and Rita Ora correctly guessed Will was under the mask while other guesses including David Walliams and James Blunt.

At home and viewers had also named Will as Lion Fish.

“#MaskedSingerUK will young for lionfish!!” one wrote on Twitter while another suggested: “Will Young as Lionfish? He was in an episode of Skins and played the Emcee in Cabaret (there was French and German shown on screen during the ‘welcomes’ at the beginning)

A third agreed: “#MaskedSingerUk I think Lionfish might be Will Young. He played the host in Cabaret.”

Other guesses included Michael Ball, Ray Quinn and Robert Rinder.
