Viewers of The Masked Singer UK believe they’ve figured out who Air Fryer is owing to an old tape.
Yes, in case you missed it, there is a genuine Air Fryer competing in the 2024 series – and many believe it’s Alison Hammond inside the mask.
A video of the This Morning star, 48, demonstrating her exceptional singing abilities has emerged, and people can now only hear her voice when they listen to Air Fryer sing.
One Masked Singer fan who shared the Stars In Their Eyes footage on social media noticed how similar Alison and Air Fryer’s voices were, offering a tape of her singing jazz while playing piano back in the day as proof.
‘AIR FRYER? Proof Of Alison Hammond Singing Voice #MaskedSinger #MaskedSingerUK’, their post read.
There’s no denying Alison can carry a tune, as she effortlessly played her way through My Baby Just Cares for Me by Nina Simone.

Reacting to the clip, X user LenzoToggz said they were ‘shook to the core’, having previously had no idea of Alison’s singing talents.
‘Ooh good shout!’, replied Sam Coley.
‘She sounds really good’, praised Carl Stanley.
However, knowing that Alison had already featured on The Masked Singer, not everyone was sure Air Fryer had a link to her.
She disguised herself as Witchetty Grub for an I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! special in 2022.
Bringing her prior Masked Singer experience to light, X user Jade Hill said: ‘She did the Jungle special a few years back’.
‘She’s already been on in 22’, said O_Pebbles.
Is Alison out as a result of this?
Or, on the contrary, does it make her a better candidate for Air Fryer?
Only time will tell…
There are lots of rumours swirling around till the big reveal after Air Fryer dazzled with their debut performance of Ava Max’s Kings & Queens.
While no one guess has so far proven correct, numerous famous names have been thrown into the mix.
Rita suspects Jessie J is behind the outfit, while Davina suspects soap actress Jacqueline Jossa.
Going entirely off the rails, Jonathan nominated RuPaul (yes, really), while Mo suggested Scarlett Moffatt.
So far, the hints have been ambiguous.
The clue package for Air Fryer had several allusions to food and cooking, possibly implying a connection to a renowned chef.
They also mentioned’sparkles,’ alluding to their previous Strictly Come Dancing experience, and were spotted carrying hairdressing scissors.
When the time came for them to recite a riddle for the panel, they said: ‘My voice is well known, but I once needed help from a girl from Chigwell.’
The Chigwell link sparked Jessie J’s speculation, but with Air Fryer’s mask still on and just two candidates exposed thus far – Dionne Warwick and Alexander Armstrong – we’ll have to wait to find out who’s underneath.
The Masked Singer continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
