Who is Piranha on The Masked Singer? Fans work out clues


The identity of Piranha on The Masked Singer UK has seemingly been revealed by fans of the star.

The latest series of The Masked Singer UK on ITV1 has introduced a fresh line-up of celebrities, all performing incognito under imaginative costumes and masks.

Joel Dommett returns as the cherished host for this year’s series, alongside a panel of experienced judges – Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, and Mo Gilligan – tasked with the fun challenge of uncovering the celebrities’ hidden identities.

This season, the character Piranha has particularly intrigued the audience, with many viewers convinced they know the person behind the mask.

Following Piranha’s first captivating performance, social media buzzed with speculation, with numerous fans pointing to Danny Jones from McFly as the mysterious voice.


One viewer expressed their certainty: “I haven’t loved Danny Jones for over 20 years to not recognise his voice, even if he’s dressed as a Piranha #MaskedSingerUK.”

Another shared their thoughts: “Still pondering over #MaskedSingerUK, and I’m sure Piranha is Danny Jones.”

A third confidently stated: “Danny Jones from McFly is Piranha, no more questions needed. Goodnight. #MaskedSingerUK.”

In their debut, Piranha performed ‘It’s All Coming Back to Me Now’ and offered a cryptic hint to the panel: “Piranhas are hungry, Piranhas do bite, but I’d rather munch popcorn on this special night.”

The accuracy of these guesses remains to be seen, with Piranha currently keeping their mask.

The 2024 lineup also includes Bubble Tea, Weather, Rat, Cricket, Chicken Caesar, Piranha, Owl, Marypole, Eiffel Tower, Air Fryer, Dippy Egg, and Bigfoot, all vying to join previous winners like Nicola Roberts as Queen Bee, Joss Stone as Sausage, Natalie Imbruglia as Panda, and Charlie Simpson as Rhino.

The Masked Singer UK continues to offer its blend of spectacle and mystery every Saturday night on ITV1 and ITVX.
