The Masked Singer has returned, and the second round of masked celebrities has performed their hearts out – but who is Eiffel Tower?
Rumours abound about who each celebrity beneath the mask is, with suggestions ranging from Emily Atack to Geri Halliwell-Horner.
Tonight’s concert featured Eiffel Tower, Chicken Caesar, Piranha, Owl, Bubble Tea, and Air Fryer, as well as the introduction of a new singer.
Chicken Caesar, who sang an amazing rendition of Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ Under The Bridge, was sent home and discovered to be Pointless host and radio presenter Alexander Armstrong.
Who could it possibly be? They shimmied on stage and performed Abba’s Voulez-Vous. Nobody knows. Let us tell you, the clothing aren’t always the most obvious indications…
Let us examine all of the hints and ideas concerning the identity of the Eiffel Tower.
What clues are there for Eiffel Tower’s identity?
- Lots of references to France and a very thick – perhaps suspiciously so – French accent
- Bushtucker basket suggests they’ve appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here
- They seem to love London
- Newspaper headline was TJ & The S, Inducted Into The Hall of Fame
- Visits Abbey Road, Trafalger Square, Big Ben, The Old Vic, Primrose Hill, and Shakespeare’s Globe
- Reference to a diary being ‘full to the brim’
- Text message from ‘Mr. BIG’ saying ‘Just landed in the City’ – nodding to Sex and the City
- Clue: ‘Ooh la la, ohh la la, mon chant était très bon. It may not have been Monty, but it was defo Python.’ (Translation: My singing was very good… and something to do with Monty Python?)
- Before exiting, Eiffel Tower said: ‘Some spicy guesses there, the panel could be Geri close to working out who I am.’
Who could Eiffel Tower on The Masked Singer be?
We all know the Eiffel Tower can sing. Geri Halliwell-Horner can also sing, as we all know.
But that’s not the only reason judge Jonathan associated her with the Parisian iconic ensemble.
With all the references to Sex and the City, superfan Jonathan pegged Geri as Kim Cattrall’s friend Phoebe in the cherished series.
Furthermore, Geri and her Red Bull Racing F1 boss husband Christian Horner honeymooned in Cannes, France.
With all the London references, this had to be an homage to Geri’s memorable Spice Girls appearance, in which she donned the Union Jack dress.
Time will tell…
‘Can I just say your voice is incredible that was a really amazing performance Eiffel Tower,’ began Rita, before dropping a serious name in the mix.
Rita believes Kim Cattrall is the Eiffel Tower for a variety of intriguing reasons.
Rita believes the video’s Abbey Road picture makes us think of The Beatles. And where do they come from? Liverpool.
After all the Sex and the City allusions, Rita could only conclude that the Eiffel Tower is in fact Kim, who is also from Liverpool.
Regarding the Paris connection, whispers have swirled for some time that Kim may appear in an Emily in Paris cameo, given Sex and the City writer Darren Star also penned the successful Netflix programme.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sex and the City is certainly a motif here, and hefty allusions had all of the judges’ eyes popping.
The mention of a journal in the video reminded Davina of Carrie Bradshaw and her newspaper column in Sex and the City.
SJP’s final scene with Mr Big was also in Paris, thus the entire Eiffel Tower thing makes perfect sense.
She also has a wonderful voice, having studied singing and dancing as a child.
Regarding all of the London allusions, the actor has been known to adore the capital…
Mo Gilligan went with a wild guess for the Eiffel Tower, assuming West End actress Sheridan Smith was beneath the mask.
The comic can sing, having appeared in a variety of musicals like Little Shop of Horrors, Legally Blonde, Funny Girl, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
But fans weren’t so convinced, as X user @playwithfire_90 took to socials and said: ‘Watching The Masked Singer. The panel suggested Eiffel Tower might be Sheridan smith. A couple of series ago my mum was determined someone was her. She was wrong.’
