Who is Scarecrow on The Masked Dancer?

The Scarecrow is pledging to give an ex-straw-dinary performance on The Masked Dancer.

This tatty character might not move much in their day job but by night they have managed to jive their way to the grand finale as one of the most fun-loving contestants.

But who is behind the mask?

Tamzin Outhwaite

Fans are convinced the Scarecrow is none other than ex-EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite.

Viewers believe there was a reference to Ian Beale, who her character – Mel Owen – on the BBC soap was previously married to.

There were also clues that pointed towards Tamzin's former roles in Inside No 9 and Hotel Babylon, among others.

One fans tweeted: "Red Cap, Inside No.9, General Manager (Hotel Babylon), Sun Hill (The Bill), magic wand (New Tricks), always got a free ride (her dad drove cab)."

H from Steps

Ian 'H' Watkins from Steps emerged as an early fan favourite for being Scarecrow, with many still unsure whether it is man or woman behind the mask.

"#MaskedDancerUK I think scarecrow is H from steps just by there walk out and the song before," one viewer wrote on Twitter.

Another viewer agreed, saying: "Our prediction for Scarecrow on #MaskedDancerUK is @IanHWatkins from @OfficialSteps."

Sheridan Smith

Actress Sheridan Smith was another strong possibility among fans.

One Twitter user wrote: "I think Scarecrow was in Inside No 9, maybe Sheridan Smith? #MaskedDancerUK #MaskedDancer."

Stacey Solomon

Fans also thought scarecrow could be Loose Women panellist Stacey Solomon.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "The scarecrow is stacey soloman surely! #MaskedDancerUK."

Joe Sugg

Fans are convinced Joe Sugg, 29, is behind the scarecrow costume.

Joe appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 and with two-time ballroom champ Oti Mabuse featuring on The Masked Dancer judging panel, fans think the YouTuber is under the outfit.

One Instagram user took to the comments of a post on The Masked Dancer's account and said: "Now what a coincidence that Oti is on the same post as scarecrow who I think is joe sugg since he was on strictly 👀"

Another wrote: "This has to be Joe Sugg surely", while a third fan added: "its gonna be joe sugg."

When is The Masked Dancer on TV and how can I watch it?

The Masked Dancer comes to its climax tonight – Saturday, June 5 – in the grand final.

The last episode of the series will air at 7.30pm, lasting 90 minutes.

Viewers will be able to catch up on any missed action on the ITVHub.
