Who has been unmasked 2023
Rhino – Charlie Simpson – The Masked Singer: SR4: Ep8 on ITV1 and ITVX. Pictured: Joel Dommett and Charlie Simpson. ©Bandicoot TV Rhino won The Masked Singer 2023 and in the final was unmasked as Busted star Charlie Simpson, He said: “It was amazing to make it into the final. The whole thing seems like a bit of a blur looking back.
I never expected to win to be honest but I just wanted to give it my best. I had no idea who I was actually up against and didn’t really hear the other people sing as we were kept away from each other during filming.” And Charlie confessed: “I was terrified. I know many people have said that being behind the mask makes them more confident but I have never really been a nervous performer.
I love singing, so I feel as though I have always had the confidence to perform. The thing that terrified me was remembering the lyrics. It’s something I got really anxious about. I kept worrying that my mind would go blank and I would forget the lyrics as they were not songs I was used to singing.” The Masked Singer UK airs on ITV1 and ITVX.
Who is Pearly King?
Six things you never knew about Pearly Kings and Queens Pearly Kings and Queens are an iconic image of London, easily recognised by their distinctive suits and accessories covered with patterns of mother-of-pearl buttons. They’ve inspired fashion designers, costume makers, and been featured in everything from films to the London Olympics opening ceremony. Worn by Fred Bliss, Pearly King of Islington; The very first Pearly King is accepted to have been Henry Croft, an orphan and street sweeper. In the mid- to late 1870s Croft completely covered his suit in mother-of-pearl buttons, creating the first pearly ‘smother’ suit.
He did this to draw attention to himself when collecting money for orphanages and hospitals and so the pearly mission to support charitable organisations was born. Following Henry Croft’s example, pearlies sew buttons onto their own garments. Buttons are sewn into patterns, words and symbols, which often have specific meanings.
A heart means charity and a wheel is the circle of life. In the museum’s collection is the suit of the Pearly King of Islington, Fred Bliss, which features playing cards on the jacket illustrating that life is a gamble. It also has donkeys, vital in pulling the costermonger’s cart to market.
- Costermongers were market and street traders who sold fruit, vegetables, fish and other produce from a cart or stall in the street.
- They were said to have sewn mother-of-pearl buttons on to their clothes to distinguish themselves; a line down outside seam of their trouser legs from knee to ankle as well as on the flaps of their jacket pockets.
It was a tradition for each coster community in London to elect a leader, or ‘King’ to organize them, keep the peace and stand up for their rights with authorities. Henry possibly drew on this tradition when he used the term ‘Pearly King’, There is some debate as to whether Henry was inspired by the dress of London’s costermongers or the costumes of music hall coster-singers.
- Coster-singers entertained the crowds with cockney songs in the music halls.
- One singer, Hyram Travers performed around this time as the ‘Pearly King’ and wore ‘the handsomest and most costly suit of clothes ever seen’ ( The Era, 20 Jan 1883).
- Perhaps Henry’s pearly suit was influenced by both groups.
It was the costers, however, who embraced the style and ideology of Pearly Kings and Queens.
Who is the pearly Lion King?
The Masked Dancer: Bruno Tonioli on being ‘possessed’ by Pearly King and fooling Oti Mabuse Virgin Radio 25 Oct 2022, 10:37
After weeks of dancing as The Pearly King, Bruno Tonioli has opened up about taking on the flamboyant lion on The Masked Dancer, and how it felt to slip past the radar of former Strictly Come Dancing pro and MD judge Oti Mabuse. The Italian dancer and choreographer narrowly missed out on winning the competition during its finale last week (Saturday 22nd October), with Glee star Heather Morris landing at the top spot. Bruno had a very impressive run on the ITV series, only being unmasked in the final moments of the show, and given Oti used to dance in front of Bruno throughout the years on Strictly Come Dancing, his unveiling was a shock to say the least. Oti didn’t believe Pearly King could be a professional dancer, but Bruno admitted she was once very close to guessing her former co-star.
When asked about what he thought when Oti confessed she didn’t think Pearly King was a pro, Bruno said: “Oti, she sent me a text! To be honest, I wasn’t going to give it away. I really played the character and then I thought ‘hang on a second, I better bring him down a bit.’ I was really doing it on purpose, I was really doing something that’s completely different, throwing it around.
- I was really going for Tom Hardy.
- It was intentional, and bless Oti, it was good I fooled her! After week two I thought I better start getting a little more fluid because initially I thought just go for the character, forget about the dancing.
- I like playing characters but then I thought I best focus a bit more on the dancing!” You might think that trying to dance with a gigantic lion’s head would be tricky, or at least incredibly heavy, but Bruno got fully into the swing of things, letting the character completely “possess” him.
He explained: “I absolutely adore Pearly King. Whilst playing him, I was possessed by him. I had to tame him. It took me a couple weeks to tame the character because it was taking over. It was such a good character. “The head, it’s not so much the heaviness it’s that it was so wide.
- When you moved it kept moving so it had its own gravity field and you couldn’t see.
- It was like being inebriated and blindfolded at the same time.
- It wasn’t easy I have to say.
- The character itself carries you through it.
- It’s a skill, not just for me but for everyone else, every costume has its own ways of using it.” The Dancing With The Stars head honcho had the judges scratching their heads from the beginning, adopting a cockney accent to throw them off the scent.
Other stars who let the mask slip this series included Gavin and Stacey star, The Choir’s and Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh. : The Masked Dancer: Bruno Tonioli on being ‘possessed’ by Pearly King and fooling Oti Mabuse

Why did they cancel The Masked Dancer
Reports that The Masked Dancer has been axed by ITV are wide of the mark, RadioTimes.com understands. The reality show – a spin-off of the popular The Masked Singer – will be rested in 2023 in order to clear space in the schedules for the Rugby World Cup, but it has not been cancelled for good and could be set to make a return next year.
The news comes following suggestions that the broadcaster could be cancelling the series. However, this does not appear to be the case and ITV has confirmed the Masked franchise in general remains an important part of its entertainment schedule, with a number of themed specials expected to air later in 2023.

The first season of The Masked Dancer was eventually won by gymnast Louis Smith, who beat Bonnie Langford and Take That’s Howard Donald in the final, while Glee star Heather Morris was victorious in season 2 ahead of Australian actor Adam Garcia and former Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli.
Other big names to have appeared on the show during its run include Craig Revel Horwood, Eddie the Eagle, Stacey Dooley, and Kimberley Walsh.

Who is the prawn cocktail in The Masked Dancer
Who is Prawn Cocktail on The Masked Dancer? – Twelve new characters took to the dance floor to battle it out to become the champion of the second series of The Masked Dancer, with Prawn Cocktail being one. In the third episode, it was revealed that Stacey Dooley was Prawn Cocktail, when she was unmasked and her dreams of winning her second dancing trophy were foiled.
Who was cat and mouse in masked dancer?
Masked Singer viewers claim to have ‘rumbled’ Cat and Mouse as Martin and Shirlie Kemp, before their exit on Saturday night, due to a subtle but ‘tell tale’ clue as they performed for the second time. This summer, there was a massive first on the ITV show’s spin-off, The Masked Dancer, when it had its first ever duo, Pillar and Post, who sparked lots of curiosity from viewers, before being forced off the show due to injury and revealed to be David Seaman and wife Frankie.
Following in its footsteps, The Masked Singer unveiled its first double act earlier this month and, just like Pillar and Post, they quickly sparked a flurry of theories from viewers at home, who were all trying to work out the answer to that killer question ‘who’s that ehind the mask?’ Just like the celebrity panel, fans playing armchair detective threw all sorts of names into the ring as potentials, including Heart Breakfast presenters Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston and Good Morning Britain hosts Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid.
READ MORE: Knitting ‘confirms’ Masked Singer identity with off screen clue While Davina McCall said she was sure that the couple in costumes weren’t ‘romantically involved’ before conceding she thought none of the panel got it right, plenty of viewers were in agreement that Cat and Mouse were in fact the very much married, Martin and Shirlie Kemp, which ended up being absolutely spot on.
Jonathan was very much on the right lines, having been the only panellist to clock the Queen Victoria picture in Saturday’s VT before Cat and Mouse’s performance, but guessed Adam Woodyatt and Maisie Smith, rather than Martin, famous for being Albert Square wheeler dealer Steve Owen and other half Shirlie.
After losing out in the vote to Knitting, who many fans are convinced is Claire Richards, Martin and Shirlie revealed themselves, explaining a few of the clues from their time on the show. Martin said the ’20 million’ clue was in reference to the massive viewing figures EastEnders used to get when he was in it, while Shirlie revealed her black and white costume was a nod to her recently released book with partner in crime Pepsi, called Everything’s Black and White.
