Who is Carwash on The Masked Dancer?

Carwash danced to the song ‘Singin’ in the Rain from the 1950 hit musical, and their performance baffled both the judges and viewers.

Halfway through, someone in a pigeon costume holding a bag of chips joined the stage and danced alongside them.

“What is the pigeon?” judge Davina McCall asked as the panel watched in confusion.

During their clue package, Carwash hinted towards being on reality TV shows, said they were artistic and mentioned being part of “double trouble.”

It has led to fresh rumours about the identity of the masked dancer ahead of Saturday night’s final.

What are the fan theories?

Many viewers are convinced that the star behind the costume might be a dancer from Twist and Pulse – a dance duo comprising of Ashley Glazebrook and Glen Murphy.

“Is Car Wash one of Twist and Pulse? The red and blue and the “double trouble” reference #MaskedDancerUK #TheMaskedDancer,” one Twitter user questioned about the dancer.

A second said: “I think Car Wash – and Pigeon – are Twist & Pulse on #TheMaskedDanceruk #TheMaskedDancer #twistandpulse

During a previous clue package Carwash said: “I’m ready to savour the excitement of this dance competition, and I’m gonna let it shine.”

“Nowhere feels more at home than in front of a huge crowd,”

Mo Gilligan immediately noted the clue of “let it shine”, with Jonathan Ross quickly responding: “Take That?”

Ross then guessed that it could be also be Take That member Howard Donald as he’s is a major car fan.

Audiences on Twitter seemed to agree, with one writing: “Howard Donald. Take That, really into his cars… #MaskedDancerUK #carwash”.

Another said: “Between Howard Donald Robbie Williams or Gary Barlow for Carwash someone from take that for sure #MaskedDancerUK”.

Lonzo, 23, appeared on the US version of the The Masked Singer in 2020 under the “Whatchamacallit” costume.

Now a fan thinks the NBA star is on The Masked Dancer in the UK due to the similarities between the costume he wore in the States and the carwash outfit for the Masked Dancer UK.

The fan penned: “Maybe it’s NBA star Lonzo Ball, because he was Whatchamacallit on The Masked Singer here in the States, and Whatchamacallit bears a striking resemblance to Carwash!”

We know Lonzo has a budding music career, but is he now strutting his stuff on the dancefloor?
