MASKED Singer fans believe a series of “obvious” clues have revealed Mushroom as the star of Doctor Who.
But now they think it was actress Alex Kingston, who played River Song in the hit BBC drama for seven years.
A person has come Reddit to share why, including how Mushroom’s song choice made them think it was her.
They pointed out, “If you’re a Doctor Who fan, you know her first episode was ‘Silence in the Library’ and her first song was oh so quiet.
“I’ve been known to occasionally spring up in a more serious forest” could refer to the actual revelations about her character that were made in the episode “Forrest of the dead”.
The user also pointed out that there were “other references to her character”.
They continued: “Digging deeper is a reference to archeology.
“Starting a new life is because she can reincarnate.”
67% of followers on the thread agree it could be Alex.
Alex rose to fame in 1980 after playing Jill Harcourt on Grange Hill.
She went on to star in many other television shows and films including The Bill, Foreign Affairs and CSI.
The star then played River Song in Doctor Who from 2008 to 2015.
Her alternate self is the third incarnation of Melody Pond and the Doctor’s wife.
Since her role in Doctor Who ended, Alex has played in Shoot the Messenger, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and most recently A Discovery of Witches.
On Saturday night, Mushroom sang the hit There Are Worse Things I Could Do from the musical Grease – leaving the judges completely confused about her identity.
The character teased, “There aren’t many places where you won’t find mushrooms. I’m so lucky to be able to leave my forest and grow my own in so many interesting places.
“It’s great to be in the action, and I’ve seen a lot of places. Honestly, I’ve never been able to capture it all but I try to do it all in my stride. .”
They also said, “I just want to bring peace and love, man”.
Judges Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan had to scratch their heads after the performance.
Their predictions included Rebel Wilson, Sia, Vicky McClure and Greta Thunberg.
