Kym Marsh has had to deny she's involved in the new series of The Masked Singer.
As fans frantically speculate about which famous faces are behind the new costumes, one theory arose that Corrie's Kym is Harlequin.
And now she's fed up of being asked about it.
"People keep asking me, but I'm not Harlequin on The Masked Singer!" she wrote in her column for OK! magazine.
"I haven't watched the show. I don't really have time to watch telly and when I do watch it, it tends to be on catch-up.
"I keep saying it's not me and everyone says, 'That's what someone who is on the show would say.' But it really isn't!"

Kym referenced another theory from the first series that claimed she was Queen Bee.
It turned out to be Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts, who won the series.
"I didn't watch the first series either," Kym continued, "but I know that people thought I was Queen Bee and it turned out to be Nicola Roberts.
"I'm not really up for going back to doing singing shows again – I'm too busy at the moment!"
Fans have proposed a number of theories over Harlequin's identity

In 2010, Kym appeared in Popstar to Operastar, voted out in the series' fifth week.
Kym made her emotional Coronation Street exit late in 2019, and has since gone on to land a BBC daytime show with Gethin Jones.
Masked Singer speculation has reached a fever pitch with the unveiling of Swan as Martine McCutcheon on Saturday's show.
Names like Sheridan Smith, Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon have been floated for the remaining characters.
Jessica O'Reilly of Ladbrokes said: "Fans are convinced Sheridan's the Sausage following the latest episode and the cryptic clues, which has seen her installed as the clear favourite."
Stacey's also been tipped to be Sausage

Meanwhile judges Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall are wrestling with identity of Badger – who gave them a cryptic "strictly" clue.
This has convinced some fans that it's former Strictly pro Kevin Clifton.
