MASKED Singer fans were united in disbelief tonight when England football legend Michael Owen was put in the frame as one of the characters.
Doughnuts, a man made of a big pile of sweet treats, performed Spice Up Your Life on tonight's show.
There were plenty of clues pointing to the character being former England and Liverpool star Owen – but many insisted they didn't need any.
One wrote: "Just from the voice alone you can tell it’s Michael Owen" while another tweeted: "10000000% Michael Owen!"
But for those who do need convincing, there was a nod to Stoke, the city where he ended his Premier League career between 2012 and 13.
At one point there was a reference to "stoking a fire" another another to "golden" syrup.
One fan wrote: "It is definitely Michael Owen (footballer, played for Stoke, won the golden boot)."
The Golden Boot is the prize awarded to a tournament's top goalscorer and Owen won it twice in the Premier League.

Another viewer joked: "I am 100% certain Doughnuts is Michael Owen and he is putting more effort into it than he ever did while playing for Newcastle."
A third harked back to 2001 when the star and Will Young – who was unmasked tonight – were at the peak of their powers.
They tweeted: "Michael Owen bags a hat-trick v Germany. Will Young wins Pop Idol.
"Who’d have thought that 20 years on, Owen, dressed as a giant doughnut, would beat Will in a singing competition."
