Spoiler: This article will name one of the Masked Singers who is yet to be revealed.

The Masked Singer’s costume designer has revealed the identity of one of the stars who is yet to be unveiled on the show.

Tim Chappel, who has won an Oscar, BAFTA and AFI award, was chatting to Deborah Knight on 2GB radio in Sydney yesterday.

Knight asked Chappel if he was told who the celebrities were before he designed the costumes.

“For example, were you told that … Julia Morris would be on the show and you would design a pink kitten for her, because it’s Julia Morris isn’t it?” Knight asked.

After a brief pause, Chappel replied: “Ah, yeah, yeah it was Julia Morris. And didn’t she make the most amazing pink kitten? She was just so fabulous in that costume.”

He continued: “But to answer your question, no, we design all the costumes first and then we get the cast and then we shoehorn the cast into the costumes.”

Kitten is one of the five characters on the Channel 10 show yet to be revealed, but fans have been guessing for weeks that it’s Morris hiding behind the cute outfit.

During his interview on 2GB, Chappel also explained how they come up with the wacky characters on The Masked Singer.

“We try and look at our audience and we try and put one character on the stage that’s going to appeal to every different kind of person,” he said. “The candy kitten appeals to five-year-old girls.”

Chappel also confirmed that they will be shooting a Masked Singer grand finale despite a COVID-19 outbreak on set.

The grand finale was meant to be filmed on August 22 but was called off just two hours before filming was meant to begin when it was confirmed a crew member had tested positive for the virus. Since then, 15 more cast and crew members have tested positive.

Masked Singer judge Jackie O said on KIIS FM yesterday: “It’ll be a proper finale. There’ll be no Zoom … Everyone is staying back now.”

The Masked Singer continues tonight on Channel 10 at 7.30pm
