Amanda Holden has addressed claims that she's Panda on The Masked Singer UK on her Breakfast Show on Heart.

Speaking to Jamie Theakston and Ashley Roberts on their Breakfast Show, Amanda told her pals that she's definitely not Panda, but confessed she thought her pal Ashley could be behind the mask.

As the trio began discussing the popular ITV show on air, Jamie said to the ladies: "Still a lot of questions, is Ashley Roberts Panda for instance? That's all over Twitter."

Ashley immediately questioned him as she refused to let anything slip, but Amanda shared her confidence that Ashley is the one behind the Panda mask.

Amanda chirped: "I think it is! Davina McCall thinks it's me. It's an American!"

Jamie added: "It's one of you two. Who is it? Is it you or is it Amanda?", but Ashley immediately said: "Am I American? I don't know I feel like I'm more of an adopted Brit these days."

Asking her outright, Jamie said: "Are you, or are you not Panda?"

However, Ashley refused to give him a straight answer and said: "I would never say! You have to stay tuned and watch the show."

Amanda wasn't feeling quite so secretive though and stated: "It's not me, I have to say. I think it's her."

Both Jamie and Amanda agreed that they were pretty confident.

It comes after multiple fans took to Twitter to share their theories that Ashley Roberts was the one behind the mask, with one user writing on Saturday: "I think Panda is Ashley Roberts."

Another wrote: "I would put money on Panda being Ashley Roberts from The Pussycat Dolls… the doll in the bag, the eating beans (rice and beans from I'm A Celeb), she said she has been animated before… she was the voice of an animated elf in a kids Christmas film."

A third person added: "Panda is definitely Ashley Roberts."

Fans have speculated that the person behind the Panda mask is definitely a singer, which would put Ashley in the running.

However, the bad news is that given the popularity of Panda, it's likely that they'll be in the competition for a few more weeks, so fans will need to wait to find out if Ashley is behind the mask.
