The Masked Singer rules out star as Dragon as viewers spot them on show

The Masked Singer confirmed one predicted celebrity was unlikely to be taking part after all.

Matt Lucas was tipped to be the mystery star performing as Dragon on the show, with him also initially thought to be Bush Baby.

But a preview clip for next week confirmed this can’t be the case, given he is a guest judge on the panel.

Great British Bake Off and Little Britain star Matt will join Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan, Rita Ora and Jonathan Ross on the show next Saturday.

With Dragon still in the competition, and Bush Baby now out, it can’t be Matt behind the mask, viewers quickly realised.

The preview clearly rules him out of being on the show as a performer, despite even the judges naming him as a guess just weeks ago.

One fan tweeted: “So dragon isn’t Matt Lucas.”

Another agreed: “So dragon isn’t Matt Lucas or Alan Carr.”

A third added: “Dragon isn’t Matt Lucas then!”

This was echoed by a fourth fan who said: “If Matt Lucas is a guest judge on #MaskedSingerUK next week, then he can’t be… er, whichever of the characters people were predicting him to be.”

It follows comedian Alan Carr making a guest stint as a judge, with fans wanting him to return.

Matt will be tasked with trying to work out Dragon’s identity, with Sue Perkins and Courtney Act among the stars tipped to be under the costume.

He will have to help them with the other four acts too, including Harlequin, Sausage, Badger and Robin.

Viewers think they’ve done an epic job at working out most of the identities, with Aston Merrygold, Gabrielle, Sheridan Smith, Stacey Solomon and Ne-yo amongst the predictions.

The Masked Singer UK airs Saturdays at 7pm on ITV.
