Here’s a full recap of tonight’s final episode of The Masked Dancer 2021 with all the performances and reveals.
The first series of The Masked Dancer concluded tonight on ITV with its seventh and last episode.
Throughout seven evenings a fresh line up of 12 celebrities will be performing while concealing their identities with elaborate masks.
The panel – telly presenter Davina McCall, TV personality Jonathan Ross, comic Mo Gilligan and dancer Oti Mabuse – have been trying to find out who is behind the mask after each performance. In tonight’s final Holly Willoughby joined the show as a guest panellist.
The four final acts – Squirrel, Carwash, Zip and Scarecrow – performed for the last time before the studio audience voted for their favourite. At the end of the show all four were unmasked and the winner was crowned.
Watch all the performances and all the reveals below…
Scarecrow opened up the final with a dance to Years & Years and Jess Glynne’s cover of The Greatest Showman’s Come Alive
Zip was next to dance, performing to Rick James’ Super Freak.
Squirrel’s final performance was to Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s Bang Bang.

After all four had performed for the first time in the final, the studio audience voted for their favourite.
