COMEDIAN Rob Beckett left fans stunned last night when he posted a tweet supposedly meant for his social media team.
He posted, midway through The Masked Singer, that he was the show’s Traffic Cone writing: “Just send this out once I’ve been unmasked.”

He went on: “Thanks for all the support being the Traffic Cone I absolutely loved it. Great show. The kids couldn’t believe it was me. .”
Many fans didn’t realise the post was a wind-up, with one tweeting: “Noooooooooooo you just ruined it for me.”
Several others insisted they hadn’t watched yet and believed Rob – who narrates Celebs Go Dating – really was being unmasked.
Another fan wrote: “I cannot believe how many people have fallen for this.”
A third joked: “You wish you could sing that well!”

While some fans really do think Rob Beckett is the Firework, the favourites are now crooner Aled Jones and Chase host Bradley Walsh.
The major clue “I got smashed at Wimbledon” could refer to the TV star’s stint playing football for Wimbledon FC.
Fans of The Chase will know about his stint at the club after he came face to face with one of his old physios.
