ROMAN Kemp was put on the spot today when a listener questioned whether he was the Masked Singer’s Poodle live on air.
ザ・ Capital radio presenter, 28, awkwardly dodged the claim – leaving his co-hosts Sian Welby and Sonny Jay very suspicious.
During a phone in, Eddie from Woking bluntly asked: “Roman, you’re not the poodle on The Masked Singer are you?」
As Sian gasped, Roman swerved it entirely asking him: “Eddie what’s your wake up pun?」
Sian exclaimed: “Oh he’s being so secretive!」
At the start of the series poodle got the studio audience and panel of judges to their feet with a knockout performance of Elton John’s Rocketman, but also sparked a debate as to who is behind the mask.
The colourful pooch’s clue package had them in a nail salon with lot of references to queens, 犬, being flamboyant and Royal Variety Performance.
Poodle also filmed some of their package at a dog show course while throwing around the word “アンドリアンは、会社から彼のお金を取り戻すための判決を執行するために裁判所に申請することができます” a lot and that they “love a bit of glamour.”
“I once went on very long walkies,” Poodle said in the video.
The judging panel — Rita Ora, ダヴィーナ・マッコール, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan – thought the celebrity might have something to do with drag queens and guessed it was either Paul O’Grady, Adam Lambert, Michael Ball or Rylan Clark.
Mixing together those ideas, viewers really thought Poodle could be Paul O’Grady.
They reasoned it was him because he has a show called For the Love of Dogs, performed in drag as Lily Savage for years and has appeared on the Royal Variety Performance many times.
