TV presenter Susan Calman has played down speculation she is Dragon on this year's 'The Masked Singer', admitting it is the "the most flattering rumour ever"
Susan Calman says speculation she is Dragon on 'The Masked Singer' is "the most flattering rumour ever".
The 46-year-old TV presenter insists she is not taking part in this year's show as Dragon, but is a big fan of the ITV singing programme.
Speaking on 'Lorraine', she said: "OK ... this is the most flattering rumour that's ever been spread.
"I didn't know about this until a couple of days ago.
"Last series of 'The Masked Singer' – I love it, I think it's amazing – I would sit at home with my wife going, 'I wonder if it's that person, I wonder if it's that person.'
"I'm not [Dragon], but thank you for thinking I was."
However, 'The Masked Singer' Twitter account continued to fuel the speculation.
Following Susan's interview, a tweet read: "That’s exactly what Dragon would say... #MaskedSingerUK (sic)"
The rumours come after several viewers guessed Susan could be Dragon on the singing show, in which stars perform songs in costumes and give clues about their identities.
One wrote: "Dragon is Susan Calman #MaskedSingerUK (sic)"
Another posted: "I think the dragon is Susan Calman. (sic)"
One Twitter user wrote: "I've somehow managed to convince myself that Dragon is Susan Calman (sic)"
Chris Kamara recently responded to speculation he could be Grandfather Clock on the programme.
He said: "It's a great show."
And Joe Swash remained coy about whether he was Blob.
The former 'EastEnders' star said: "Well I can't confirm or deny these allegations."
Spice Girls singer Mel B, and 'Murder on the Dancefloor' hitmaker Sophie Ellis-Bextor have so far been unmasked on the second series.
