The Masked Singer UK is just about the biggest show on the telly at the moment, but Alan Cumming has made it abundantly clear he’s not got anything to do with the current series. 

Or any series of the programme, in fact. 

The actor has declared that he will never star on the bonkers and brilliant show after fans claimed he was under the Bagpipes costume. 

It comes after the mysterious character was introduced on Sunday night with a clip filmed on the streets of Edinburgh, filling the audience in on the masked celeb’s Scottish heritage and accent. 

After viewers guessed it could be the 56-year-old actor, he took the opportunity to write: ‘Newsflash: I am not on @MaskedSingerUK nor will I ever be. Thank you.’

So, that’s that then. 

Bagpipes performed Song 2 by Blur on last night’s show, with a Scotland-heavy VT playing beforehand. 

The clues pointed to the star having ‘a bit of Scottish’ in their past, leading some to guess it was actor Alan on social media. 

Other names linked to Bagpipes include John McEnroe, due to what appeared to be tennis clues in the VT, as well as Pat Cash, David Tennant and Richard Madden. 

The Masked Singer returned as a New Year’s treat for all fans of TV’s biggest guessing game.

Joel Dommett is back to front the show, as 12 more mystery celebrities don elaborate costumes and burst into song, in their bid to outwit judges Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall.

As ever, theories are spreading like wildfire online after the first two episodes, with viewers desperate to work out the identity of their favourite singers.

There have been some compelling guesses so far, with fans convinced that Traffic Cone is Rick Astley.

Elsewhere, TV royalty Gloria Hunniford was the second celebrity to be unmasked after being eliminated on Sunday night. 

Gloria performed Shirley Bassey’s Big Spender on the show, performing once again when she was unmasked.

The Masked Singer continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
