The Masked Singer fans let down as they guess unmasked Sophie Ellis Bextor

The Masked Singer left fans wanting more after the first episode on Saturday night, after it was revealed that Alien was singer Sophie Ellis Bextor.

Alien lost in the sing-off against Robin, and the panel decided to unmask Alien, which is when Sophie's identity was revealed.

However fans had already guessed it was her, saying it was "obvious" and a "dead give away".

"How did they not get that Alien was Sophie Ellis Bextor?" one asked. "The voice was a dead give away."

Another wrote: "Are we meant to believe all of the judges are so dense they didn't get Sophie Ellis Bextor? It was obvious. I got it in seconds, before they even sung."

A third said: "Knew it was Sophie Ellis Bextor straight away!"

While another added: "The fact that none of the judges got that it was Sophie Ellis Bextor makes me think it is totally scripted bulls***. None the less, I love it!"

Other than the similarities in the voice, many viewers correctly figured out Sophie's identity through the clues.

There was a crime scene in her introduction video, which was a reference to her hit song Murder on the Dancefloor.

There was also a shot of a wedding dress, which was an outfit she wore in the music video for Get Over You.

Alien referenced a battle in her introduction too, and Sophie explained that was because she'd had a cameo in a giant battle scene in Game of Thrones.

And on top of that, there was a direct name to her 2007 album Trip The Light Fantastic.

The other two characters at risk in the bottom three were Badger and Swan.

Meanwhile, Dragon, Robin and Sausage sailed through to the next round after winning the studio audience vote in their sing-offs.

There have been a number of guesses for the other characters so far, with viewers making up their minds already.

Many believe Robin is JLS singer Aston Merrygold, while they reckon Sausage is Billie Piper.

Names being suggested for Swan include Pussycat Dolls stars Kimberly Wyatt or Ashley Roberts, as well as Michelle Visage.

People think Dragon could be drag queen Courtney Act too, with even the judges confused as to whether they were hearing a male or female voice.
