She wrote: ‘Yes so as most of you guessed, it was me & she in #themaskedsinger.

‘Even my one year old pointed at the telly and shouted ‘mummy!’ when I started singing in the alien suit! 

‘Anyhoo a fun and trippy way to spend a few days and enjoy the rest of the show- no idea who anyone is!’

Prior to her performance, the preview video clip rolled and the mystery singer dropped a series of hints including the comment: ‘All the people look like tiny models’. 

Then the camera panned to a mannequin wearing a dress as the alien declared that her job in the world is ‘to spread joy love and glitter’. 

Some fans thought this was a reference to her disco tracks including Take Me Home and Murder On The Dancefloor. 

One viewer said: ‘100 percent Alien is #sophieellisbaxter. Her voice is too distinctive to disguise!#MaskedSinger.’

Another fan penned on Twitter: ‘Alien is Sophie Ellis Bextor! Murder on the dance floor reference too!’

The singer stood on a podium on the futuristic set and hit the high notes in Dua Lipa’s track, Don’t Start Now. 

After she concluded her song, Jonathan said he noticed a crime scene in the preview video and thought it could be The Fall actress, Gillian Anderson. 

Rita Ora noticed multiple model references and guessed it could be author and model Sophie Dahl.  

Fellow panellist Mo Gilligan was taken by a wedding dress reference on a mannequin in the clip and presumed it could be Lily Allen, who recently tied the knot with Stranger Things actor David Harbour. 

Davina amusingly thought it could be presenter Joel Dommett’s partner, Hannah Cooper.
