MAJOR Masked Singer spoiler! Internet sleuths find “proof” behind celebrity costume

The Masked Singer is ramping up as it gets into its final contestants and fans are trying to figure out which celebrity is behind the eccentric masks they perform behind.

Internet sleuths have come together to find out who exactly Frillneck could be and have rounded it down to the beloved children’s entertainer Jimmy Rees, better known as “Jimmy Giggle”.

The clue that stood out to fans was the description of him being a “stand-up guy who hangs with birds of a feather”.

The “birds of a feather” reference is suspected to be  the 33-year-old's former on-screen pet owl, Hoot. 
Other clues to Frillneck's identity include he's “theatrical and comfortable putting on a show” and “Jack Black and I were fascinated with the same incredible creature”.  

On Wednesday, Frillneck caused a stir when he performed the chart-topping hit Can't Hold Us by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. 

A number of fans watching from home said the son was “100% Jimmy Giggle” while others argued it was comedian Eddie Perfect.  

During the episode, judge Jackie 'O' Henderson also suggested that Frillneck could definitely be a children's entertainer.

It's also worth noting The Masked Singer's official account also follows Jimmy Rees.

Jimmy debuted as 'Jimmy Giggle' back in 2009 and served on the long-running children's ABC series for a decade.

He left the series in 2019. 

“After 10 years I decided that it was time to take on the next exciting challenge in my career, while also being able to dedicate more time to performing as Jimmy Giggle live in concert, a part of the job I love so much,” he said at the time.

Jimmy is a father to three young sons - Lenny and twins, Vinny and Mack - with wife Tori Rees.
