Roman Kemp dodges claim he’s masked singer’s poodle after fan confronts him live
Roman Kemp sidestepped a caller’s question during a phone conversation, leaving his Capital radio co-hosts Sian Welby and Sonny Jay to suspect he might be the masked singer’s poodle.
Roman Kemp has awkwardly dodged accusations that he is the masked singer’s poodle after a fan asked him the question live on the radio.
The 28-year-old presenter sidestepped the caller’s question, leaving his Capital radio co-hosts Sian Welby and Sonny Jay very suspicious.
Eddie from Woking at point-blank range asked Roman in a phone call, saying, “Roman, you’re not the poodle from The Masked Singer, are you?”
Co-host Sian gasps as Roman answers the question with another question, saying, “Eddie, what’s your wake-up pun?”
Sian exclaimed, “Oh, he’s so secret!”
The masked singer’s poodle was a hit with studio audiences early on, after an electric performance of Elton John’s Rocketman knocked the crowd and jury out of their seats.
Since then, there has been furious debate over Poodle’s identity as fans theorize who is behind the mask.
The hit ITV reality series – which sees stars dress up in elaborate costumes and perform covers in front of a panel of judges who try to decipher their identities using clues – returned to screens earlier this this month.
This year’s jury includes Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan.
Poodle’s VT gave viewers plenty of clues to chew on. Clues included references to queens, performances, flamboyance, and dogs. The character also gave a nod at the Royal Variety Performance.
“I’ve always liked a bit of glamor and I don’t mind telling you that flamboyance is a bit fabulous. It’s something I’ve always admired,” they said.
“I once took really long walks,” Poodle said in the video.
The jury thought the celebrity might have something to do with drag queens and guessed it was Paul O’Grady, Adam Lambert, Michael Ball or Rylan Clark.
They added: “I can’t wait to be let loose in this competition. I can’t wait to start. Are you rrr-ready for me? Strawberry!” In their final hint, Poodle said, “I once took really long walks.”
On Saturday, Poodle played into her animal identity by singing “What’s New Pussycat?” of Tom Jones?
Viewers on Twitter guessed that Paul O’Grady could be Poodle given that the comedian and broadcaster hosts a show called For the Love of Dogs.
It comes after The Masked Singer’s Traffic Cone may have had his identity revealed as singer Russell Watson blurted out the seemingly masked fame during an interview on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday.
He denied he was Traffic Cone and instead claimed he knew exactly who it was and it was a close friend of his – claiming it was another singer and his good friend Aled Jones .
