Good Morning Britain star Ben Shephard has fuelled speculation that he's taking part in the latest series of The Masked Singer UK.
The 45-year-old presenter was back on our screens on Friday morning to present the ITV breakfast show alongside co-star Kate Garraway.
During a handover segment to Lorraine Kelly, the Scottish presenter informed Ben that fans thought he could be the famous face behind the Badger mask.
A confused Ben replied: "Really? Tell me about Badger."
Lorraine, 60, added: "He's very good looking underneath it all."
"Badger can sing and dance so it can't be Ben," Kate, 53, joked.
Ben replied: "Neither can confirm or deny. I am a fan of Badger though.
"I mean who doesn't like badgers?"
In the first episode, Badger performed Nina Simone's Feeling Good before returning in week three with Aerosmith classic I Don't Want To Miss A Thing.
Clues offered up by Badger include that they're used to being anonymous and seeing things like a virtual world.
Further clues have suggested various links to poetry, physics, as well as Australia.
In episode three, Badger offered up two lies and a truth: "I'm good at dodging furniture", "When working I'm often found in green", "Strictly speaking, dancing is something I'm well known for".
The clues may not point at Ben at the moment but you never know what could happen on the wacky show.
One of the popular fan theories about Badger's identity is Carl Fogarty.
The motorcycle racer previously won I 'm A Celebrity and often raced with a lucky green shirt.
However various other guesses have ranged from Ne-Yo to Jamiroquai's Jay Kay as well as Guy Martin, David Myers and Damon Albarn.
As things stand, Badger's mask is firmly on so we don't know his official identity.
Other contestants taking part in the competition include Blob, Alien, Robin, Viking, Seahorse, Grandfather Clock, Harlequin, Bush Baby, Dragon and Sausage.
The Masked Singer UK continues on ITV on Saturday at 7pm
