Jack P Shepherd: Corrie star exclaims ‘finally!’ in response to The Masked Singer UK claim

The Masked Singer: Dragon shares more clues

Jack P Shepherd, 32, has responded to a fan who guessed he is Dragon on The Masked Singer UK 2021. There has been a number of suggestions as to the character’s identity so far, including The Great British Bake-Off star Sue Perkins and Torchwood’s John Barrowman.

A Twitter user typed: “@JackPShepherd88 are you the dragon on #themaskedsinger?” following the latest instalment, which saw Dragon make it through to the next round once again.

The Coronation Street star replied: “Yes! Finally!” suggesting he was keen to be linked with the ITV show.

Although it appeared Jack was joking, celebrities can not reveal their identity if they are taking part in the programme.

Another fan queried the suggestion, as they typed: “Haha! Someone’s being silly! Jack’s voice is about nine billion octaves deeper than the Dragon’s.”

While a third replied: “I gotta watch this!” seemingly being convinced to watch by the Corrie’s star message.

On Saturday night’s show, Dragon was first to perform and delivered a rendition of The Shoop Shoop Song by Cher.

In the clues package before their performance, they hinted they had appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in the past, which Jack has not.

It saw Dragon at a table of food, which could’ve been the Welsh setting where the 2020 series was filmed.

Dragon also teased a strong connection to the LGBTQIA+ community, which explained the colours of the rainbow flag on the costume.

Viewers at home thought these hints pointed to Doctor Who actor John Barrowman.

He competed in the 2018 series of I’m A Celeb which was set in the Australian jungle.

The show makes campmates take part in Bushtucker Trials, one of which sees stars eat a series of gross dishes to win meals.

“Dragons have a very varied diet,” they said in the clues package.

“I’ve had duck tongues, udders, trotters and even pigs bums.”

These hints made viewers change their original guesses of Ru Paul’s Drag Race star Courtney Act and judge Michelle Visage.

Other clues Dragon has shared about their identity include: “The thing about dragons is they’re all fire and strength on the outside, but they just want to be loved.

“Becoming a dragon has meant I’ve literally become a big character, but I’m not entirely sure that’s how I’m usually thought of,” they continued.

“Anyways, I mustn’t drag on. I might be cute, but sometimes I have a fiery temper.”

Jack is currently filming episodes of Coronation Street and shared videos of him between takes with co-star Brooke Vincent over the weekend.

They looked as though they were having a fun time as they danced along in a car to Barbie World by Aqua.

The Masked Singer continues Saturday on ITV at 7pm
