THE Masked Dancer fans are convinced they’ve worked out who Prawn Cocktail is after spotting some tell-tale “clues”.
Prawn Cocktail gave an energetic performance to One Night Only from the musical Dreamgirls during Saturday night’s episode of The Masked Dancer.
While the judges – Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Oti Mabuse and Peter Crouch – were left guessing, with Davina suggesting it was Holly Willoughby behind the mask, fans at home insisted they knew who it was.
“Prawn Cocktail is Amber Davies,” wrote one viewer. Claiming they made “west end” references during their VT, another agreed and said: “Prawn Cocktail is definitely Amber Davies.”
Love Island winner Amber has carved out a successful stage career since shooting to fame on the ITV2 show in 2017.
One potential reference to this was Prawn Cocktail holding up a drinks menu and suggesting the “Dolly Parton” – as Amber starred in 9 To 5: The Musical.
Saturday night’s show saw Astronaut unmasked as US actor Jesse Metcalfe, who starred as hunky gardener John in Desperate Housewives.
But none of the judges successfully worked out who was behind the mask.
Jonathan guessed Alex James from Blur, Davina guessed Henry Cavill and Oti and Peter both guessed Bear Grylls.
After being unmasked, Jesse said: “I thought it would be fun. Dancing is something that really intimidates me and it was a fear I wanted to face.
“This has been unbelievable, it’s one of the most zany things I’ve ever done in my career but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself.”
