The Masked Dancer has unmasked Beagle as ice skating legend Christopher Dean as they became the fifth celebrity to leave the competition.
The Dancing On Ice star and former Olympian completely fooled the judges, with none of them having guessed him.
Christopher said that he had joined the show in the hopes of taking on a new challenge at age 63 – but was pretty happy to be going home as his knees couldn’t take much more.
It was the first time all eight of the stars had performed, with Davina McCall, Oti Mabuse, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan desperate to find out who was behind the mask.
Giving them a helping hand was guest judge David Walliams as the panel oversaw the first double elimination.
What were the clues?
- Someone who loves a competition
- First pair of boots
- Book of trees/ family trees
- Alluded to flying planes
- There was a time when they were homeless
- ‘New rules are in’
- ‘Could we bring it home?’
The dancers still left are Zip, Llama, Scarecrow, Carwash, Frog, Beagle, Squirrel and Knickerbocker Glory.
A UK adaptation of The Masked Dancer was commissioned due in part to the success of the original American version, which began airing its first season on Fox last December.
The Masked Dancer on ITV & the ITV Hub continues at 7.30pm on Thursday June 4.
