For weeks fans of The Masked Singer have been trying to work out who has been performing as Robin on the ITV singing competition. As the final took place, Robin appeared to confirm they were JLS star Aston Merrygold.

Before taking to the stage, Robin told fans: “I hope I don’t make a Burke of myself.”

Nicola Roberts, who was a guest judge, asked: “Who was in the X Factor final with Alexandra Burke?”

Fans of The X Factor will know Alexandra Burke won the competition in 2008 beating JLS who went on to have their own successful career.

Could Robin have let their identity slip before the final showdown?

Bookmakers certainly think Aston Merrygold is hiding under the mask of Robin with Betfair cutting the odds of the singer being revealed to 1/2.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “The Masked Singer may have captivated people up and down the land in 2021, but the biggest riddle of all is still bamboozling amateur sofa sleuths – just who is Badger?

“While there are odds-on favourites in the forms of Aston Merrygold at 1/2 to be Robin and Sheridan Smith at 11/8 to be Sausage, the furry biker has everyone stumped.

“Ne-Yo is the current 11/10 favourite to be Badger, followed by Peter Andre at 2/1 and Adam Lambert at 3/1 – but having concealed themselves so well, the unmasking will come as a surprise to everybody come Saturday night.

“The polished performances of Robin sees him as 6/4 favourite to win the show – but he is very closely followed by Badger at 15/8 and Sausage at 2/1 in what the odds suggest will be an incredibly tense final of everyone’s favourite detective show.”

Fans were also certain Robin was Aston after their latest performance posting on Twitter: “Robin has got to be Aston Merrygold!

“It sounds so much like him and there was the Alexandra Burke clue – JLS came second to her on X-Factor! #MaskedSingerUK.”

Another added: “Name fits like a glove – marigold – merigold = Ashton Merigold from JLS is Robin #MaskedSingerUK.”

A third posted: “#MaskedSingerUK Predictions is Robin: Aston Merrygold, Sausage: Joss Stone (NOT Stacey Solomon) and Badger: honestly no clue.”

Robin’s identity will be finally revealed tonight after weeks of speculation.

Last week on the competition, Harlequin was revealed to be Gabrielle, who admitted she almost pulled out.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, she explained: “I nearly died. Nobody prepares you for the weight of that thing, nobody prepares you for the closed face.

“I had panic attacks, I was hot. Just the fact of having to sing in a mask, this heavy mask that required two people to put on my head.

“I said I’m not doing this, I’m going home. I’m not even joking. I don’t think they have someone on standby if you choose not to do the show.

“That would have been pretty unprecedented but I didn’t care. There were a million emotions I was going through at the time.”

The Masked Singer is available to catch up on ITV Hub.
