The first contestant was Mushroom, which definitely stumped the panel and viewers at home.

Two years ago, the show came flying over from America, in which it is extremely popular with fans over there, and now equally as popular here in the United Kingdom.

Viewers at home played sofa detectives and gave a variety of different guesses.

It appeared to be a female who is also a Northerner. Guesses ranged from Kym Marsh, Kimberley Walsh to Jenny from The Chase.

However, viewers were then stumped as Mushroom continued to shock when they started to sing ‘All So Quiet’ by Björk.

Viewers at home were quick to point out that they sounded Irish – in which guesses started to spiral from Irish stars.
