Step forward Denise Van Outen, exposed because of a tweet sent back in 2011.

Fans were quick to find the post and comment on it.

“You are the Fox,” said one.

One pointed out that Denise affectionately called daughter Betsy “Teapot” during her pregnancy.

Others praised TV presenter Denise’s performance.

Denise has yet to comment on the rumours, so we’ll just have to wait and see if the Fox is indeed the former Big Breakfast host when she is unmasked.

The show returns to ITV on Saturday night at 7pm.
