Since the bizarre new series launched, viewers have been watching clues form to try and work out who Queen Bee could be.

The celebrity behind the mask is a contender to win the show and fans appear to have their identity whittled down to two people: Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud or Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall.

Some of the clues given could apply to both singers including winning a talent show at a young age. However, after a recent VT hinted to the Girls Aloud song 'Can't Speak French' thoughts turned to the Liverpool lass.

But, she has previously said ‘Woman Like Me’ and ‘Power’ in VTs which are both Little Mix songs.

Queen Bee has also said: “With tonight’s song I’m going to enjoy every moment – these wings were made to fly.” That statement could be hinting to the Little Mix song ‘Wings.’

Another hint could simply be in the disguises name. Jade has a tattoo of Arabic writing on her rib cage meaning 'Queen.’ So that could have been her inspiration behind the mask chosen.

In a VT from episode three, Queen Bee said: “I got so much of a buzz from my last performance, but not as much of a buzz as I get from helping other people.” Jade is known for supporting local charities such as Cancer Connections.

Another clue pointed to a connection within the fashion industry. Nicola Roberts is passionate about fashion but this could hint to Jade because of the Little Mix PrettyLittleThing clothing collection.

In the recent episode – the semi final – the panel got to ask a question and they opted for "are you a Geordie?" to which Queen Bee replied "why no man!" But, that would be strictly true as Jade is a sanddancer.

Panel member Davina McCall has previously guessed that it could be Jade but we’ll only find out for sure in the final on Saturday, February 15 on ITV.
