Beagle clues

Beagle said in their first VT that things kicked off when he got his 'first pair of boots', and alluded to the fact he had flown planes.

On Tuesday night's show, he gave some more clues.

"I've been upstaged by a comedy legend."

"I'd rather it didn't leak out where I am originally from."

Beagle has also stated that Beagles are 'very homely, but there was a time where I was home less and less'.

Who was Beagle?

Beagle was unmasked on Thursday night, and it was Christoper Dean behind the mask!

After he was unmasked, he said: "It's been great fun, it's nice to finally be able to breathe again."

Mo Gilligan added: "I love The Masked Singer. It’s a crazy bit of joy, which we all need right now - so when ITV asked if I wanted to join The Masked Dancer I, of course, said a huge yes! I’m really looking forward to getting back with the team for another brilliant series."

The Masked Dancer is that little bit of silly fun our lives need right now and I’m so excited to be hosting it.
