Masked Singer fans spot HUGE clues that 'guarantee' Doughnuts is football legend Michael Owen
MASKED Singer fans were united in disbelief tonight as Doughnuts was all but confirmed as England football legend Michael Owen.
The 42-year-old former wonder-child sung football anthem Sweet Caroline after a series of killer clues.
They included a reference to Argentina, the country he famously scored against in 1998.
There was also a helicopter – which he just happens to have owned in the past – in the background of his clue package.
One fans laughed: "I remember when we used to cheer as Michael Owen scored a belter of a goal.
"Now I am witnessing him getting a bigger roar for belting out Sweet Caroline whilst dressed as a dancing donut."
Doughnuts, a man made of a big pile of sweet treats, performed Spice Up Your Life last week.
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" while the character was shown pouring out 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 about Owen's footballing career, writing: "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 as Lionfish – 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."
