Who was Sausage on The Masked Singer UK?
People were getting annoyed trying to guess the person performing as Sausage on The Masked Singer.
On their first appearance Sausage said they looked like a tomboy but was really a "girly girl" and had a "strong connection to the beach and the coast".
They also admitted they liked a laugh and that "performances are something of a balancing act".
Judges Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall were stumped by the clues guessing Meghan Trainor, Maya Jama, Billie Piper, Ella Henderson, Stacey Solomon and even former MP Edwina Curry.
Sausage then went on to drop a hint to her name by singing Lisa Stansfield's Been Around The World.
In the semi-final Sausage accessorised her appearance with a long blonde ponytail and gave the clues that she's a funny girl and was "once on the menu for a princess".
She dropped other royal clues with references to liking to "duke it out" and she "snagged a king".
The judges still stuck with Stacey Solomon as well as Ellie Goulding, Sheridan Smith, Pixie Lott, Leona Lewis and Kéllé Bryan.
However Sausage was unmasked as Joss Stone, who was crowned winner of the 2021 series.
What were the fan theories?
Joe Swash had been giving his fiancé the cold shoulder after seeing the mystery singer perform I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor.
In the kitchen of their Essex home with Joe in the background, Stacey took to her Instagram stories to expose his incredulity.
She said: "I just need to take a moment to appreciate that he's actually not talking to me because he thinks I'm the Sausage on The Masked Singer and I just haven't told him. What the hell?"
However, Stacey has poured cold water on the theory, saying: "Let's be fair; I'm assuming it's a pork sausage and how inappropriate would it be for me, a lovely Jewish girl, to be dancing around as a pork sausage?!"
But some fans still believe it could be her behind the mask – or Sheridan Smith.
One fan wrote: "I need Sausage to sing American boy by Estelle ft Kanye so I can decide if it’s Stacey Solomon or Sheridan Smith … #MaskedSingerUK."
But after Sausage sang the line: “They call me Stacey… that’s not my name,” in her part of That’s Not My Name by The Ting Tings, some fans were convinced this ruled out Stacey Solomon and Stacey Dooley.
An avid Joss Stone fan laid bare the tell-tale clues that "confirm" the 33-year-old singer is Sausage on The Masked Singer.
In a short Tik Tok video, superfan Matt studied the character's video trailer – with the first clue a variety of flags decorating her caravan door – with the fan pointing out that Joss "famously did a 200-stop world tour".
Sausage said that the judges had already said her name in the competition, and Matt pointed out that Jonathan Ross previously guessed that Harlequin was Joss.
And the clue"young at heart" is the title of one of the singer's tracks.
Many viewers were backing this up tweeting: "Sausage must be Joss Stone, I wish it was Stacey but I'm convinced its Joss!"
Presenter Carol Vorderman thought she had it figured out.
She guessed it might be Jane McDonald, the Bafta winning singer and TV presenter, after Sausage revealed more clues about its identity.
BBC Radio 2 host Sara Cox said Sausage is Beverley Knight, writing on Twitter: "SAUSAGE IS BEVERLEY KNIGHT. I know her voice. Thank you & good knight. #TheMaskedSingerUK."
But Ranvir Singh disagreed saying Sausage is Sheridan Smith.
And fans disagreed with the Strictly star after Sheridan appeared on the BBC's Musicals: The Greatest Show on February 8.
One wrote: "I started watching #MusicalsTheGreatestShow. Sausage on #MaskedSingerUK 100% isn’t Sheridan Smith."
And one cheeky fan, referencing the viral council meeting, posted: "Sausage is 100% Jackie Weaver #MaskedSingerUK."
