The Masked Dancer has eliminated its third famous contestant

The Masked Dancer has eliminated its third famous contestant ...

The Masked Dancer UK series 2 spoilers will be released shortly.

Tonight (September 17), The Masked Dancer resumed on ITV, revealing a third secret celebrity in front of the nation.

Five actors performed their routines: Scissors (up first), Prawn Cocktail, Odd Socks and Candlestick, but one of them was left out of the competition as judging panel Peter Crouch, Davina McCall, Oti Mabuse, and Jonathan Ross sent them packing.

Stacey Dooley, a documentarian and 2018 Strictly Come Dancing champion, was enlisted beneath the "unnerving" prawn head.

She said: "You know, I had the time of my life." I loved it, I loved it! I just wanted to pretend to be a daft, drunk, annoying aunt.

"It's been a scream, it's been a total, total scream. Really enjoyed it. Thank you very much for being so kind."

"I wanted to be something really daft, I didn't want to be anything sexy or girly," Oti said of her choice of outfit.

"It was funny, because I said, 'Why don't I be something gross like a bin or a prawn?' So it's perfect!"

Joel asked if Kevin Clifton, an ex-Strictly pro, helped her rehearse those weekly routines for The Masked Dancer, as you would expect.

"Nah... he will't dance unless he's paid," Stacey said.

Joel teased a few key international names earlier this month, stating, "I was struck by them. It was fantastic, and the fact that they're there... and I'm interviewing them... it's bizarre!"

On ITV, The Masked Singer and The Masked Dancer air.
