MASKED Dancer fans are convinced Pearly King is Queen star Brian May after spotting key “clues” that “reveal” his identity.
The ITV show returned last weekend with a bang – and viewers are already trying to expose the celebrities behind the mask.
It was tricky to make out any clues from the character’s voice, which was extremely heavily disguised.
But some claim they’ve “worked out” the Pearly King lion is rocker Brian because of clues about his family and his hair.
One said: “Could Pearly King be Brian May? Great “mane” of hair, guitar and CDs. His wife Anita Dobson was Angie in Eastenders, where she was served her divorce papers by screen husband Den at the bottom of the “apple & pears” stairs.”
“We’ve worked out Brian May and Steph McGovern in Masked Dancer UK. Weird sense of achievement without reward”, said another.
She essentially ruled out that the character was a woman – removing any chance it was one of England’s Lionesses.
The Masked Dancer’s Oti said: “We have a lion, I think he steals the show” before quickly adding: “Or she steals the show. You see? Why do they bring me on?!”
However, some fans were split over whether it was Danny Dyer in the costume or Shane Richie.
One wrote on Twitter: “Pearly King is 1000% Danny Dyer SURELYYY.”
Another tweeted: “Pearly king – Danny Dyer or Shane Richie.”
The character dropped a bit of a clue that it was the Mick Carter actor remarking: “The panel’s guesses are dire.”
One added: “That seals it Pearly king is Danny Dyer.”
However, many – including Oti – were agreed that whoever it is isn’t a professional dancer.
Another had different feeling entirely, with one viewer tweeting: “Someone please tell me why i’m kinda attracted to pearly king.”
