Oti Mabuse Predicts Both Unmasked Celebrities on ‘The Masked Dancer UK’ Semifinal
The Masked Dancer UK aired it’s semifinal episode today after a whirlwind week of episodes. The show’s six remaining contestants fought for a place in tomorrow’s all-important finale. With yet another double elimination, judge, Oti Mabuse correctly predicted both unmasked celebrities.
Two Celebrities Unmasked in Semifinal Double Elimination on ‘The Masked Dancer UK’
The Masked Dancer UK eliminated two more celebrities today before Saturday’s final. Each performance this episode had the entire judging panel on their feet, with acts, Zip and Scarecrow being top favorites.
Knickerbocker Glory, Frog and Carwash found themselves in the bottom three after a vote from the show’s virtual voting audience. Frog found themselves receiving the lowest amount of votes, instantly eliminated from the competition.
The masked dancer was revealed as model and actress, Kelly Brook. Brook is no stranger to dancing, with previous television experience on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2007.
“Kelly Brook!!!! Didn’t see that coming!! Amazing,” one user reacted via Twitter.
Brook shocked the panel and host, Joel Dommett after admitting to faking an American accent during the pre-performance packages. Let’s hope no other contestants have used a similar tactic…
The second to be unmasked was Knickerbocker Glory after the judging panel chose to save Carwash. Knickerbocker Glory was revealed as Craig Revel Horwood. Horwood is a professional ballroom dancer and judge on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.
In the the world of dance television, this was a big deal. Horwood is practically a legend on television, known as the Simon Cowell of Strictly Come Dancing.
“It has been sooooo hard keeping the secret. It’s finally out and so am I! Haha! Thanks everyone on the team for being so fabulous. I loved every second x,” Craig told fans on Twitter after his reveal.
Oti Mabuse Guesses BOTH Unmasked Celebrities
It’s Mabuse’s first ever appearance on a ‘Masked’ series and she has definitely impressed us all. Tonight proved just that, with Mabuse making correct firm guesses on both of today’s unmasked celebrities.
The professional dancer was clearly proud, jumping for joy at both reveals in today’s semi-final. All that judging experience on Strictly definitely pays off. Oh, and that ability to know who’s a professional and who is definitely not. That must help!
Mabuse couldn’t help but show off on Twitter after the show aired, tweeting: “Double elimination – double guesses”, followed by laughing emojis.
Who Will Perform in Tomorrow’s Finale?
We’re just one day away from the final of The Masked Dancer UK. After a week of exciting reveals and performances, one act will be crowned winner.
And, of course, we will also get the opportunity to see all the show’s remaining celebrities finally unmasked.
Those competing in tomorrow’s episode are Car Wash, Squirrel, Zip and Scarecrow. This won’t be an easy decision for the virtual audience or the judging panel.
The Masked Dancer UK finale airs tomorrow on ITV.
