The Masked Dancer fans spot killer clues Scissors is Ant and Dec’s best pal


THE Masked Dancer fans are convinced there’s a telly favourite behind the sharp outfit of Scissors.

Scissors, who arrived to kick-start the ITV show’s second season, wowed with a routine that showed them sporting a shimmering silver and black catsuit.

Two huge googling eyes topped off the look for one of The Masked Dancer‘s crazy characters who battled it out against characters such as Candlestick and Astronaut with a routine to Justin Bieber track, Sorry.

Several fans have guessed that the performer is Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall, saying many of the clues added up.

Yet another name – this being of Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly‘s best pal – has been thrown into the frame.

Many think the duo’s SMTV Live presenting pal Cat Deeley, 45, who has re-located to the UK after living in LA, is the face behind the mask.

One clue came about as the character was seen posing behind a bar saying “I’ve certainly done my fair share of touring”.

The telly favourite also branded themselves a “funny girl” and added: “These peepers are feline like they could use forty winks.”

One fan swiftly took to Twitter to muse: “Scissors must be Cat Deeley. Feline, 40 winks is also a cat nap #TheMaskedDancer.”

A second reasoned: “I think Scissors is Cat Deeley, don’t forget she started out fashion designing on “the Clothes show” when she was 14 and then did fashion modelling. #themaskeddancer.”

A third then put: “I’m guessing Cat Deeley is Scissors!”

One then boldly admitted: “Missed all the clues but thinking Scissors could be Cat Deeley…#themaskeddancer.”

Previously fans were convinced they had Scissors worked out.

They pipped Amanda Holden as the snippy dancer, thanks to her role in BBC drama Cutting It – where she played a hairdresser.

“Amanda Holden was in ‘Cutting it’, but can she dance like Scissors just danced?” one fan wrote on Twitter.

“Scissors is Amanda Holden,” a second chimed in, as a third said: “It’s surely got to be Amanda Holden as Scissors.”

The ITV competition sees celebrities in elaborate masks and costumes perform in front of a panel of judges.

The Masked Dancer is a spin-off of the enormously successful Masked Singer, which has been a big hit for the broadcaster.
