Many fans think they know who Beetroot is already.
In their first clue package, Beetroot said: “Hey, sugar, I’m beetroot.
“I’m just a fun town girl from way up north.
“Growing up far away from the plant worlds of stardom inspired me to find out who I am today.
“Look around, I’m very happy with my plot, it don’t impress me much. I’m a glass half full of girl, I take pleasure from the small things.
“It’s early closing time out here in the country, no no more hints for you. I’ll let you decide if this is all hearsay or not.”
Fans guessed it was Suzanne Shaw.
One tweeted: “The Hearsay thing is making me think it’s Suzanne Shaw #MaskedDancer.”
While another said: “Beetroot Suzanne Shaw? #MaskedDancer.”
A third wrote: “Or Kim Marsh or Suzanne Shaw #MaskedDancer.”
After a post introducing newcomer Beetroot was made on The Masked Dancer UK’s official Instagram page (@maskedsingeruk), fans have started to speculate who the dancing veggie might be.

Leaving their suggestions in the comments section of the Instagram post, many believe that Beetroot may be a very familiar face.
“This could be Rita (Ora)“, one fan wrote.
The singer was previously a judge on The Masked Dancer’s sister show and fans believe she may be making a return to the show as a contestant.
Another fan speculated: “I’m already thinking Beetroot is Dianne Buswell“.
The Australian redhead is best known for her appearances as a professional dancer on BBC’s Strictly come Dancing and fans of the show suspect the choice of a beet as a costume may be a nod to Buswell‘s flaming locks.
