Who is Blob on the Masked Singer

The Masked Singer fans suspect Blob is Lenny Henry after hotel hint

Viewers sure that Lenny Henry is the mystery celebrity

| Updated:

The Masked Singer viewers are still guessing the identities behind the characters and many are wondering: Who is Blob?

A number of fans are convinced that the panel are ‘pretending’ not to know who the celebrity in the Blob costume is.

They seem certain they know who the mystery singer is, claiming that the star in question dropped a really obvious hint on last night’s show.

And some fans are deeply suspicious that the panellists didn’t pick up on the ‘hint’, with one claiming that the whole thing is a “put on”.

What did Blob sing on The Masked Singer?

On last night’s show, Blob performed the song ‘Hotel Room Service’ by American rapper Pitbull.

And for many viewers, that was a huge clue as to the true identity of the alien-like creature.

Cast your mind back a few years and you’ll remember that comedian Lenny Henry appeared on a series of TV adverts for hotel chain Premier Inn…

However, if it was a clue, the panel didn’t pick up on it.

Davina McCall thought Blob was comedian Greg Davies, while Rita Ora believed it might be fitness coach Joe Wicks.

Mo Gilligan quipped that the celebrity inside Blob was “someone kind of old trying to get in with a younger crowd”, before guessing Ainsley Harriott.

What did Masked Singer viewers say on Twitter?

And Jonathan Ross plumped for Little Britain and Britain’s Got Talent star David Walliams.

At home, though, viewers were tearing their hair out, claiming that Blob’s true identity was obvious and that the panel were faking their ignorance.

One tweeted: “We’ve all known it’s Lenny Henry for weeks! He now just sang about the bloody hotel chain he is the face of, and the panel are still pretending not to know! Why does this make me so angry.”

Another scoffed: “Why is everyone on the panel pretending that they don’t know it’s Lenny Henry.”

And a third commented: “It’s either not Lenny Henry or the panel just pretending not to all notice the obvious. If it’s the latter then the whole show is a put on. Bit like that American wrestling rubbish.”

A fourth viewer was also sure they knew who it was: “Blob is Sir Lenny Henry and I cannot be convinced otherwise! Last night when he sang about ‘hotels’ just finalised it for me.”
