The Masked Dancer’s Flamingo has been unmasked as Louise Redknapp as she became the second celeb to be eliminated from the show.

The ITV competition continued tonight as six more characters – Squirrel, Carwash, Flamingo, Rubber Chicken, Frog and Beagle – shimmied onto the stage.

The singer and media personality was a member of R&B girl group Eternal, and she failed to impress the audience and judges Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan, and newbie Oti Mabuse on the second episode of the show.

However, she had a blast on the chaotic series, explaining she took part because she ‘wanted to have some fun’.

‘I love dancing and after such a tough year I just thought, I really need to get out of the house and do something fun,’ she said.

Louise told the judges that her kids didn’t know she was on the show, and it was no doubt an exciting moment for them to finally find out.

Jonathan managed to guess it right, but Oti, who has danced with Louise before, didn’t manage to guess it correctly.

What were the clues?

  • Show biz reporter
  • Loves fashion
  • High-flying runs in the extended family
  • Wedding invite
  • Vegas set

The Masked Dancer airs every day this week, and is based on the wildly popular format of The Masked Singer, which has seen stars including Sophie Ellis Bextor, Mel B, and Nicola Roberts compete.

The costumes for the series have been unveiled, and with the likes of Carwash, Zip, Rubber Chicken and Knickerbocker Glory all taking part, they’re just as wacky as the different identities we’ve already seen on The Masked Singer.

Joel Dommett is hosting the series, while it’s up to the panel of four judges to guess the celebrities’ identities.

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 returns tomorrow at 7:30pm on ITV.
