Craig Revel Horwood is certain he knows who the Squirrel is on The Masked Dancer UK.
The Strictly Come Dancing judge, 56, was the seventh celebrity to be eliminated from the show on Friday night when he was unveiled as Knickerbocker Glory.
After being identified by the judging panel, the twinkle-toed pro insisted he knows who is hiding underneath the squirrel costume.
He told the Radio Times: ‘I reckon squirrel is Bonnie Langford.
‘There’s no one else I know who does kicks like that. I can only think that that was Bonnie Langford because I don’t know anyone else in the world that does kicks and splits all day long and can keep up with a 12 year old boy, that’s her all over, isn’t it?’
Professional dancer Craig was correctly identified by The Masked Dancer judges – Oti Mabuse, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan – on Friday night.

Oti, who stars alongside Craig on Strictly, had him completely sussed, convinced she could recognise him from his walk.
Asked why he took part, the pro dancer said he wanted to know what the celebs on Strictly go through and ‘to prove to myself that I had the guts to do something like this’.
The judges were joined by comedian John Bishop as the Liverpudlian helped them try and guess who the competing stars were.
The elimination came after another two stars were sent home – Beagle was unmasked as ice skating legend Christopher Dean and Llama was revealed to be radio DJ Zoe Ball.

The dancers still left are Zip, Scarecrow, Carwash, and Squirrel.
The Masked Dancer returns June 5 at 7:30pm on ITV.
