#MaskedSingerUK blob is 100 per cent Lenny Henry, even sounds like him

The 43-year-old uploaded a clip of Blob performing Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk.

The presenter put forward a popular name as to who is underneath he outlandish costume in view of his 239,000 followers.

Alongside a video of the programme, Matt wrote simply: “LENNY HENRY?? @maskedsingerUK.”

It is likely the star has met the 62-year-old on numerous occassions, thanks to his former role on the BBC teatime favourite as well as charitable committments. Does that give his guess even more credibility?

Matt shared his claim after various clues were given about Blob, who went up against Harlequin.

The second episode also featured Bush Baby, Seahorse, Grandfather Clock and Viking.

In a VT, which took place in a school, Blob had suggested he wore glasses, referencing the get-up’s four eyes.

Walking around a classroom, they said: “As a kid, I wanted to be James Bond or Batman but instead I became the Blob.

“I’m going to conceal my true identity and tonight I’m hoping to go out there and make a good first impression.”

After Blob’s performance, Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Rita Ora revealed who they thought was hiding behind the mask.

The judges suggested Richard Osman, Romesh Ranganathan, Greg Davies and Andi Peters.

However, much like Matt, many at home also believed it to be Sir Lenny and took to Twitter in their droves.

Those at home will have to wait to find out who Blob actually is, as it was Seahorse who was revealed.
