What is Blob like on The Masked Singer?

It’s safe to say Blob has already created quite an impression.

The purple and pink character has layers of gunk dripping off him (or her).

It has four eyes and boasts a big, wide, toothy grin.

What are viewers’ theories?

Some viewers made the connection between Blob and Mr Blobby from Noel Edmonds’ 1990s TV hit, Noel’s House Party.

According to some viewers, former Deal Or No Deal host Noel, 72, could be the man behind the mask.

Other theories include comedian Romesh Ranganathan.

The 42-year-old star wears glasses and is a tall man.

Could he be Blob?

Who else do viewers think is Blob?

Another theory popular with fans is Sir Lenny Henry.

After the character’s performance of Uptown Funk, fans queued up on Twitter to share their belief that Sir Lenny, 62, was the man behind the mask.

One fan wrote: “If Blob isn’t Lenny Henry it’s someone impersonating him #MaskedSinger.”

“Swear I head that familiar “owwww” right at the end.”

While the majority think it’s the legendary comedian, some had another theory…. Shaun Wallace from The Chase.
