Masked Singer: Viking reveals clues to identify

ITV show The Masked Singer has turned viewers into detectives as they try to work out which stars might be behind the wacky costumes. With the show’s seven remaining contestants all fighting it out to become this year’s winner, tonight’s edition will see another forced to give up their true identity upon their elimination. One character who has continued to perplex the panel is Viking and despite many watching at home believing it’s 80’s music star, Morten Harket, the show’s latest eliminated star John Thomson has dropped a huge clue which could debunk their guesses. 

So far, five stars have had to expose their identity on the show. 

Last weekend saw Cold Feet actor John Thomson reveal he had been hiding behind the disguise of Bush Baby in recent weeks.

With just seven famous faces left to guess, viewers are scrambling to try and put the various clues together and solve the case. 

One person who those watching at home think they’ve rumbled is Viking.

Last week, host Joel Dommett explained each song would possess a clue linking to the identity of the star singing it. 

Viking’s song seemed to be a giveaway, performing an acoustic rendition of Take on Me by A-ha. 

Many think this move confirmed their suspicions it is indeed the lead singer of the 80’s band behind the mask.

But John Thomson has now had his say on the rumour, giving his thoughts on his competitors to Express.co.uk and other press after his exit.

He said: “I think Sausage has got a great voice, especially that Dreamgirls song. I was like blown away, that just took me totally by surprise, was amazing. 

“Badger’s got a great voice as well. Very, very good. Viking’s a bit weird…”

Asked whether he thought it was Morten underneath, he instantly opposed the idea: “Morten Harket. It’s not him!”

The reason why he believed it couldn’t possibly be the singer is all in the height of the character.

“Honestly, Morten’s like six foot five. Viking is like five foot! Yeah, not Morten Harket, no way!” 

“Spandau Falls, what the heck? The clues on that…” John added. 

But many fans are sure it’s still going to be Morten who will be unmasked as Viking whenever he has to give-up his disguise. 

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have slashed the A-ha’s star’s odds into just 1/2 to be the voice behind Viking.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Super sleuth fans are absolutely convinced Morten Harket is Viking after last week’s acoustic performance of his own A-ha song, which was a top-level bluff from the singer if he is behind the mask.”

Other names linked to Viking include Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson and Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn.

Singer James Blunt and explorer Bear Grylls have also seen themselves thrown into the mix in recent weeks when it comes to who the person hiding behind Viking could be.

But with the stars being faced with a double elimination tonight, who will be the next to have to expose their true identity?

The Masked Singer airs Saturdays from 7pm on ITV.
