Who is Dragon on The Masked Singer? All the clues you need to know

1 month ago 8

The Masked Singer’s second series in the UK is a welcome break for many – an opportunity to enjoy some harmless entertainment and throw around any and every name imaginable to guess which stars are performing in disguise.

The celebrities unmasked so far include a queen of the dancefloor, a Spice Girl, a former EastEnders- with Sophie Ellis Bextor and Mel B the first two stars unmasked, and Martine McCutcheon revealed as the third.

In the fourth week, it was football manager, Glen Hoddle, who was delivered a red card.

As the show continues, more characters have yet to be sussed out, including Dragon.

What clues has Dragon given about who they really are?

What clues have been given about Dragon?

Viewers met Dragon when they performed You’ve Got a Friend in Me, from Toy Story, week three when they performed ‘Reach’ by S Club Seven and in week five when they sang Céline Dion’s All By Myself.

Viewers were also given some clues about who the star underneath the mask is. These included:

A picture of money inside a house Dragon says they ‘mustn’t drag on’ Rainbow coloured costume ‘I might be cute but sometimes I have a fiery temper!’ They met a boyfriend onstage They said the costume has made them ‘brave enough to perform like this’ and it helps them ‘hide [their] big belly’ ‘My name is my biggest clue’ (said as a truth or lie) They had an embarrassing incident with a ‘famous shoe’ (said as a truth or lie) ‘I know my IQ backwards’ (said as a truth or lie) Dragon said there’s an ‘air of destiny’ about them being Dragon, as their ‘journey started and ended with a giant winged costume’ The singer said they’ve ‘taken some perilous journeys’ in their time, hinting that they’re well-travelled They also held up a car wheel as a prop

So, from these clues, what names have been thrown around?

Michelle Visage

Michelle Visage is a repeat offender when it comes to viewers’ speculation – there are many who thought she might have been Swan before she was unmasked.

The reasons why the RuPaul’s Drag Race judge and former girl band member could be the Dragon are to do with her connection to the drag and LGBTQ community.

Clues about the Dragon saying they musn’t ‘drag on’ could be a pun about her role on the hit Drag Queen reality show, and the rainbow colours on the Dragon costume could be representative of her place in the Queer community.

Anyone who has watched RuPaul’s Drag Race will also know Visage has a fiery temper indeed – never one to back down from direct – but constructive – criticism

Jesse Tyler Ferguson

It was judge Rita Ora who first threw Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s name into the mix – and perhaps she was on to something.

The actor is best known for his role on Modern Family – which could be connected to the clue involving the house as playing happy family definitely earned him a pretty penny.

An out gay man and strong advocate for the LGBTQ community, the rainbow colours on the costume could also be a nod to this.

As for the fiery temper, Ferguson is a redhead – perhaps he was being tongue-in-cheek with his fiery puns.

Courtney Act

Another one maybe playing on the drag word play is the multi-talented drag queen, singer and actor Courtney Act.

The same clues that applied to Michelle Visage would work for Courtney Act – a drag queen who starred on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Courtney later went into the Big Brother house where she won – a house full of money is one of the clues.

Kevin McCloud

The bookies posed the Grand Designs presenter is a possibility, early on, with odds of 12/1.

The clue involving the house with money would fit, as McCloud is best known for presenting the show where homes and buildings get huge makeovers and redesigns.

Sandi Toksvig

Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross were very taken with the clue that Dragon ‘knows their IQ backwards’.

With all the panellists speculating that the star is a comedian, they pointed out it could be Sandi, who has hosted QI.

Other guesses have included Rebel Wilson, Miranda Hart, Sue Perkins, Amy Schumer, and Lily Savage – to name a few.

The Masked Singer continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
