While Viper, Flamingo and Beetroot have been unmasked as Jordan Banjo, Louise Redknapp and Dita Von Teese respectively, Squirrel's identity is one of the ones that remains a mystery.

However, from the clues she has given so far, fans have picked up on references to EastEnders and Strictly Come Dancing and concluded it must be Maisie, 19.

Maisie plays Tiffany Butcher in the BBC soap, while she was a finalist in the 2020 series of Strictly.

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "@MaskedSingerUK I think #Squirrel could be the amazing @maisie_smith_."

Another added: "@maisie_smith_ definitely the squirrel in whose that in the mask #MaskedDancerUK."

A third tweeted: "Im so sure squirrel is maisie!!"

So far her clues have included having "street cred" and also being "TV royalty from an early age", which could refer to Maisie first being on EastEnders as a little girl.

She also said it was: “Time for this lady to, style it out, on the dance floor." which could be a nod to her time on Strictly.

Last night saw Burlesque Queen Dita unmasked as Beetroot, leaving the judges shocked.

Meanwhile viewers suspect Zip is Take That star Howard Donald and Llama is Line of Duty's Vicky McClure after an AC-12 clue.

The Masked Dancer continues tonight at 7.30pm on ITV.
