With just three finalists left in the competition there were plenty of theories and rumours about their identities swirling around. Here's everything you need to know about who The Masked Singer finalists 2024. WARNING: Spoilers ahead...

Who were The Masked Singer finalists 2024?

The 12 finalists were whittled down to just three contestants: Bigfoot, Cricket and Piranha.

Bigfoot

The cuddly character had warmed viewers' hearts, with fan theories mainly pointing towards TV presenter Alex Brooker. Bigfoot always appears with his foot in a cast, which could be a hint towards the show Brooker appears on called The Last Leg or could be a nod to his prosthetic leg. And indeed it turned out to be Alex Brooker, and he came second

Cricket

This bug has been keeping audiences and the judges guessing throughout. Davina McCall suggested Cricket could be JLS's Marvin Humes, Mo proposed Levi Roots, and Olly Murs considered Lemar. Fans however are convinced that Cricket is a member of the boyband Blue with some suggesting he is Duncan James or his bandmate Simon Webbe. But the judges' hunch that he was indeed Lemar was proved right - he finished third.

Piranha

This fish has been killing it with the judges and viewers alike for the whole series. The judges described Piranha as one of the "best singers of the series", with fans having a strong theory about who could be behind the mask.

The latest rumour comes following last week's semi-final, with the top guess going to Shayne Ward, as the Coronation Street actor is also a talented singer who won X Factor in 2005. And the judging panel were baffled, with the guess with the most consensus being Donnie Wahlberg.

However, the theory that he was McFly's Danny Jones was proved correct. A clue revealed Piranha's wife was a former Miss England, McFly's album Motion in the Ocean was also hinted at and the choice of a Michael Bolton song was a pointer, with Jones being from the city of Bolton.
