Rockhopper’s identity ‘worked out’ by Masked Singer fans – and it’s not Zendaya

The second episode of The Masked Singer UK premiered on Sunday evening as ITV viewers got to see the next six disguised celebrities take to the stage. And first up to kick things off with a bang was Rockhopper, who blew the judges and audience away with their rendition of Higher Love. Soon after, the likes of Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan shared their guesses – but it seems they’re all wrong as fans have already “worked out” who could be behind the mask.

As part of their clues package, Rockhopper told viewers: “The circus has come to town and I’m introducing to you… me.”

They added: “Call me the entertainer because I’m here to bring you a show!”

Jonathan soon questioned whether Rockhopper had an American and after picking up on the several circus-themed clues, the judges shared their guesses.

Rita was convinced Rockhopper was none other than The Greatest Showman star Zendaya, while the likes of Alesha Dixon, Kimberly Wyatt and Jessica Ennis-Hill were also tipped to be under the disguise.

Becky Handley also echoed: “#MaskedSingerUK Rockhopper=Ashley Roberts.!!”

While @vixmccarthy43 concurred: “@MaskedSingerUK Rockhopper is Ashley Roberts????”

However, there was still plenty of support for Rita’s guess of Zendaya.

Twitter user @leighsmotivate agreed with the Let You Love Me singer, adding: “Omg rockhopper is zendaya #MaskedSingerUK.”

Ryan Chappell also didn’t budge from Rita’s guess: “@MaskedSingerUK Rockhopper… Zendaya maybe..?”

While @sophie_hodgson_ added: “Is rockhopper @Zendaya?!?!?! #TheMaskedSingerUK @MaskedSingerUK.”
