The Masked Singer's Doughnut has been rumbled as fans and judges guess that it could be former footballer Michael Owen after a series of clues.

The ITV show kicked off on Saturday night with Doughnut performing second on the programme.

Judges and viewers alike all agreed that the new clues all pointed towards the celeb underneath the mask being a current or former footballer.

Fans of the show all flocked to social media after the character chose to sing Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline, which has now been coined by English football fans as a matchday chant.

One fan said: "English footballer no one else would sing this as a clue. Probably Micheal Owen #TheMaskedSingerUK"

A second added: "First time properly watching Masked Singer. Doughnut is 100% Michael Owen #TheMaskedSingerUK"

While a third penned: "@ThisisDavina Doughnut is @themichaelowen defo #TheMaskedSingerUK"

A fourth typed: "definitely a footballer, and definitely michael owen #themaskedsingeruk"

A fifth tweeted: "Bloomin #TheMaskedSingerUK annoying me as always & I’m already guessing Robobunny is Rupaul, doughnut is Michael Owen & Fireworks currently has me stumped…."

And a sixth stated: "My word some of those guesses for Doughnut. The Argentina reference, itself, gives it away. Its Michael Owen ffs. #TheMaskedSingerUK"

Rita Ora also agreed with the fans and said: "This is coming from someone who doesn't know much about football but then they said something about coaching and reinvesting so I'm going to go with Michael Owen."

However, a TV judge thought it could be another former footballer, with Jonathon Ross guessing it could be Alan Shearer.

He said: "Doughnuts what a great performance, what you lack in technical skill you more than make up in enthusiasm. You are a real natural entertainer whoever is in there but then, of course, Sweet Caroline, we do think it is a footballer.

"There was an Argentian flag in there so it could be someone who has played in the squad against the Argentineans… I think it could be Alan Shearer."
