The Masked Singer viewers think they know who’s behind the Bush Baby costume.

ITV’s wackiest reality TV series returned on Saturday (16 January), with Grandfather Clock, Harlequin, Bush Baby, Viking and Blob performing for a second time.

Bush Baby returned to sing “A Little Less Conversation”, impressing the judges with his Elvis Presley-like voice.

When speaking, Bush Baby has an Australian actor but admitted that he was “good at accents”, leading the judges to speculate that it was fake.

However, Twitter users were convinced that they knew who was behind the costume, suggesting actor Brian Conley, who is known for his performances in musical theatre.

“Anyone else think Bush Baby is Brian Conley?” one viewer tweeted.

“My guess is Brian Conley,” another commented. “He’s done magic, he was famously kicked out of I'm a Celebrity in Australia, he’s done a variety show and the voice sounds like him.”

“Bush Baby is Brian Conley, I am sure of it,” another tweet read.

Conley is the bookies’ favourite to be unmasked as Bush Baby, with Ladbrokes having him at odds of 11/8. He is followed by John Thompson (3/1), Joe Swash (4/1), Matt Smith (5/1) and Matt Lucas (6/1).

The Masked Singer returns next Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
