Many have picked up on different clues highlighted by Robin which they are sure are linked to the much-loved singer.

Although is not always the case, the costume the celebrity is wearing can sometimes be a major giveaway as to who they are.

Taking to Twitter after Robin performed, one viewer said: “Aston from JLS maybe is the Robin? #MaskedSinger.”

Another shared: “Just watched the Robin, sounds like Aston from JLS, not sure on any of the clues but it sounds like him and he is a dancer too. #TheMaskedSinger.”

A third fan wrote: “Oh hang on… Flying Without Wings? JLS sang that song with Westlife on The X Factor. I think Aston is too short though… #TheMaskedSinger.”

“Catching up on #TheMaskedSinger and I am convinced that the robin is Aston Merrygold. No one can tell me otherwise – I spent 99% of my teenage years listening to that voice and I knew it straight away,” commented another.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have also weighed in on the action – with Aston the most popular choice – at 4/7 odds to be unmasked as Robin.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Aston’s only got one shot to win The Masked Singer, but the odds suggest his recognisable voice and ability to hit the high notes is going to see him unmasked next.”

But who will be the next star to be unmasked on the programme when it returns later this evening?

The Masked Singer airs Saturdays at 7pm on ITV.
