The Masked Dancer has revealed its eleventh celebrity, with runner-up Squirrel being revealed as Bonnie Langford in a wild finale.

Bonnie fell at the very last hurdle, losing out on the ITV crown to Carwash – aka Louis Smith.

Judges Oti Mabuse, Mo Gilligan, Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall were on hand to offer their guesses, alongside guest judge Holly Willoughby.

Unfortunately, absolutely none of them managed to clock on that the EastEnders actress was performing under the squirrel costume.

Spilling the beans on why she donned an elaborate outfit to dance away on stage, she said: ‘It’s been such a joy. I mean it is nuts, this show is nuts.

‘I love the singer version, I love dancing and I love performing.

‘My character is so fun and full of energy and is such a laugh.’

Bonnie confessed she was seriously nervous about taking part, as she just wanted to make everyone involved ‘proud’.

Well, she nailed that with those splits.

‘Oh I was so nervous,’ she added. ‘I like to put on a good show and I want to make myself and the team proud.

‘I am a bag of nerves when I dance. I think I was more nervous when I was unmasked.’

Bonnie’s exit comes after Howard Donald and Tamzin Outhwaite were unmasked earlier in the evening, as Zip and Scarecrow respectively.

Diversity star and Britain’s Got Talent winner Jordan Banjo was the first to be kicked off the show, with Louise Redknapp, Dita Von Teese following suit over the next two episodes.

Eddie the Eagle, Christopher Dean and Zoe Ball also showed off their dance moves on stage before being eliminated, as Craig Revel Horwood and Kelly Brook were unmasked on Friday night’s instalment.

The Masked Dancer is available to stream on ITVHub now.
