Masked Dancer fans say Knickerbocker Glory is Strictly’s Craig after jelly clue

Fans of The Masked Dancer are convinced they’ve sussed out the identity of one of the contest’s biggest characters.

It was a clue in Knickerbocker Glory’s introduction that allowed owl-eared fans to cement their theories – and it led them straight to a dancing pro’s doorstep.

Viewers are now convinced that the ice cream’s identity is Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel-Horwood.

The show kicked off on Saturday night, with Knickerbocker Glory taking on a dancing Zip.

And before they took to the stage, the ice cream sundae offered a whopping clue that led fans to think they’ve got them worked out.

"As a young scoop I won a [BLANK] contest with my jelly [BLANK]," they teased.

But fans rushed to fill in the gaps, pointing out that dancing maestro Craig was once an eager young chef – who won a cooking competition for his jellied prawn cocktail.

He had written about it in his autobiography, joking that he was “in training for Celebrity Masterchef” after being crowned at the Sunbeam Junior Chef of the Year competition.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "No idea about Beetroot but Knickerbocker Glory (for me) is Craig Revel Horwood," as another added: "Knickerbocker glory is Craig Revel Horwood!! If it’s not I’ll eat my hat!"

Someone else pointed out: "Noticed De-Li-Cious on the ice cream menu… I’m thinking Knickerbocker Glory might be the FAB-U-LOUS Craig Revel Horwood!"

Knickerbocker Glory grooved along to Lady Gaga’s Telephone on Saturday, after an elaborate video introduction by the sea.

They explained: “I’m so excited I could… scream.

"Just like a Knickerbocker Glory I'm full of layers, from my tippy-toes to the cherry on top," they continued.

"I’m here to entertain the nation. I want to squeeze a little zest into the competition."

Viper was unmasked on Saturday as Diversity star Jordan Banjo, who lost out during a dance-off with Beetroot.

The star explained that only his brother Ashley knew he was taking part, as he joked: "Ash knows. He might fire me now!"

Judge Oti Mabuse had him figured out from the start, though – as did Mo Gilligan, who had written down his name on a scrap of paper, leading to a fiery clash between the two.

Several other panelists were taken aback that the first person to leave the show was actually a professional dancer, after making the decision to send Viper home and keep Knickerbocker Glory and Beetroot.

Louise Redknapp was eventually unveiled as Flamingo on Sunday night, after she danced to Lady Marmalade.

Fans were insistent that they "should have known" after the usually-rapt star mysteriously hadn't tweeted her guesses about the programme.

Though Beetroot’s identity remains a close-guarded secret, their veggie-themed costume was inspired by ITV’s Eat Them to Defeat Them campaign, which sees celebs including Amanda Holden and Ranvir Singh lend their voices to evil veggies that must be vanquished by the nation’s children.

It is part of a wider campaign to get kids eating more vegetables.
