Masked Singer: Viking reveals clues to identify
ITV show The Masked Singer has proved a much-needed distraction for viewers who’ve put on their detective’s hats in recent weeks to try and rumble which famous faces could be hiding behind the various whacky disguises. With the competition gradually narrowing down, Viking is one character who is directing the panel’s guesses’ all over the place – but could he soon be unmasked as 80’s music legend Morten Harket?
So far, four celebrities have been forced to give up their identities to the public after being eliminated from the competition.
Last weekend saw football star and pundit Glenn Hoddle become the fourth person to exit after he was confirmed as the man behind Grandfather Clock.
But of course, the competition is far from over and viewers are continuing to guess sin their masses who might be the next star to be outed.
One person who those tuning in aren’t quite sure about is Viking – but now it seems his identity could have been worked out.

Viking was nearly eliminated last weekend after a close bottom-two with Grandfather Clock and remained to fight another day.
According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, Morten Harket is currently favourite to be underneath the fearsome character.
The A-Ha frontman is at 2/1 odds after fans have linked multiple clues back to the ‘Take Me On’ hitmaker.
Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “The talent on Masked Singer this year is incredibly high, and at this stage, you could see any of the acts winning.”

She added: “The betting suggests Viking and Dragon could be unmasked this weekend, with Morten Harket or Courtney Act being sent home.”
In his first clue package, Viking said: “You are curious who I am, I am curious too, and that’s the thing about a Viking, we are a curious kind.
“We are explorers, we forge our own way. We discover answers, and in my career, throughout this competition, I’ll be looking for a voice.”
This soon got some believing it was Norwegian vocalist Morten behind the mask, due to his Nordic roots.

Another clue included being the proud recipient of a “Blue Peter badge.”
And whilst this could throw it wide open for a huge number of names, many eagle-eyed viewers have pointed out Morten received one back on the BBC show in 1986.
One fan shared on Twitter: “Morten Harket has a Blue Peter badge!!!”
Another commented: “Morten Harket from A-Ha maybe they were on Blue Peter??#MaskedSingerUK.”
“If Viking isn’t Morten Harket, it’s Ricky Wilson, both have a Blue Peter badge,” wrote another.
Ricky Wilson is another favourite to be unmasked as Viking, with fans previously recognising a likeness in the character’s voice.
One fan noted: “I think Ricky Wilson is a good shout. The voice does sound similar #MaskedSingerUK.”
“Vikings voice!! DAMN!! I’m guessing Ricky Wilson #MaskedSingerUK,” agreed another – but who will become the latest star to be unmasked this evening?
The Masked Singer airs Saturdays at 7pm on ITV.
