Many The Masked Singer viewers were previously adamant Blue singer Simon Webbe is behind the mask.

Others, along the same music star line, suggested singer-songwriter Lemar, 45, was cricket’s real identity.

Yet now they have chanced stance in favour of fellow vocalist David Guest, 67.

The Fame Academy coach has catapulted to the top of suggestions from eager show fans following a video posted to Instagram.

After cricket was captured performing on-stage, the caption read: “That Performance was PITCH-perfect! Bravo!”

Many took this to refer to the vocal coach, with one viewer insisting: “Cricket is @DavidGrantSays.”

A second simply put: “David Grant as a third commented: “David Grant or Duncan James.”

Another then mused: “I have said this from the start but he hasn’t won a Brit award,” as one added: “I’m wondering if he meant MOBO award. He and Carrie received that prestigious award for a gospel album??”

The Cricket has also given stunning performances of Antenna by Fuse ODG, Of The Night by Bastille and Place Your Hands by Reef.

Meanwhile BBC star David first rocketed to fame in 1981 as part of the funk band Linx, when their single Intuition reached number seven in the UK Singles Chart.

Back in 2002, David and wife Carrie, 58, also a vocal coach, joined Robin Gibb and Richard Park as judges on Fame Academy, the BBC’s response to Pop Idol.

Hard times

Previously, his wife Carrie opened up on their family being “too poor to eat” despite his popstar fame.

The One Show presenter said: “David or I would get work singing backing vocals in the West End and we’d be searching for change down the back of the sofa for Tube tickets so we could do that session and earn £125.

“Friends brought us groceries because we were living on pasta.

“Those were very stressful days.”
