I’m now convinced it’s Alfie Boe. I’m not convinced Manford could do that posh voice. And it’s not fat enough to be Michael Ball

SisterAgathaVanHelsing Sun 02-Feb-20 18:53:10

Dont you think Alfie Boe is a much much better singer?

Piggywaspushed Sun 02-Feb-20 18:53:15

Thanks new OP !

I think the Alfie Boe clues stack up , have to say.

Horehound Sun 02-Feb-20 18:53:48

Is it on tonight?

Quartz2208 Sun 02-Feb-20 18:57:24

Yep Alfie Boe works and I think it a similar issue to Skin it is difficult to properly sing in the costumes sometimes and they hold back.

It still Octopus for me that I cant work out

PrincessButtockUp Sun 02-Feb-20 18:59:11

I'm sure I'm wrong, but Jodie Comer crossed my mind for Octopus when they were talking about all the different languages.

Piggywaspushed Sun 02-Feb-20 19:03:52

It was Duck with all the languages though. I think...

Quartz2208 Sun 02-Feb-20 19:05:41

Both said languages. Duck said she could speak them Octopus said she performed in different languages

Chipstick10 Sun 02-Feb-20 19:06:10

Sister I do think Alfie is a better singer but I don’t rate him iykwim. He didn’t sound great singing Dont look back in anger.
I have never ever ever rated Katherine Jenkins, she always sounds like she has a sock shoved in her gob but goodness if Octupus is her then I take it back, she’s incredible

itswinetime Sun 02-Feb-20 19:08:09

It could be Alfie Boe for sure I have definitely gone off on Manford as an idea the last 2 shows but I can't rule him out in the same way I'm not entirely sure on Boe I feel that there have been too clues that this person isn't just a singer and I can't really believe he would do the show either 🤷🏻‍♀️

It's my problem for octopus to I agree Katherine a jenkins fits best but if so the show has done her no favours as I would have though she was a better singer than she has been.

It is possible to sing well I. The costumes queen bee has smashed every performance.

Chipstick10 Sun 02-Feb-20 19:10:34

Alfie Boe has a dog called Guinness.

Piggywaspushed Sun 02-Feb-20 19:11:27

Well, that seal it then chipstick!

Piggywaspushed Sun 02-Feb-20 19:12:14

It's probably sacrilege but I have never thought Boe is an amazing singer anyway...

IdleLiz Sun 02-Feb-20 19:12:48

I'm still randomly thinking Will Mellor for Hedgehog even if the clues don't match or a McCann brother.

OutwiththeOutCrowd Sun 02-Feb-20 19:27:35

I think hedgehog could be a McGann brother too. Irish heritage. Musical family. Blood Brothers - dying every night at 8.30.

IdleLiz Sun 02-Feb-20 19:44:40

Yes OutwiththeOutCrowd so some clues do match up.

So Paul or Joe McGann?

Can't see it being Stephen, as he's quite busy with CTM.

ShesGotBetteDavisEyes Sun 02-Feb-20 19:48:04

It can’t be Alfie boe - he has quite a northern accent. Hedgehog is posh!

IdleLiz Sun 02-Feb-20 19:54:45

Hedgehog is posh! Which makes me think actor.

itswinetime Sun 02-Feb-20 19:57:36

I'm in now way sold on Boe, mainly because for some reason I can't let go of manford even though I don't think it is him anymore possibly because he is one of the ones I got to on my own without all your help 😂 but hedgehog is trying to be posh that isn't is actually accent I'm 100% on that.

leghairdontcare Sun 02-Feb-20 19:58:12

Surely hedgehog is Rhydian Roberts from X factor? He sang meatloaf when he was on in 2007 and it's pretty much identical to last night's hedgehog performance.

emilybrontescorsett Sun 02-Feb-20 20:01:16

Just throwing my two peneth in, and wanting to gloat as I guessed Skin!!
Purely on her voice.
I thought Alfie Boe for hedgehog as he said something about his bow.
I really hope Octopus is Jodie Prenger.

Rhubarbisevil Sun 02-Feb-20 20:02:23

Hedgehog is Hugh Jackman

Hedgehog spikes - wolverine
His middle name is Michael
He holds a Guinness World record
He died every night in The Prestige
He spent a year at Uppingham School as a gap year teacher so can imitate a posh accent

What else?

Piggywaspushed Sun 02-Feb-20 20:08:35

Hugh Jackman is a major Hollywood star. It really doesn't seem likely!
