He said of signing up for the show: “I love the singer version, I love dancing and I love performing. I think this is a lot more physical obviously but I am definitely a better dancer.”

In their first performance, Carwash danced to Christina Aguilera & Missy Elliot’s Car Wash. For their second routine, Carwash danced to a megamix of songs from the hit musical Grease. For their third routine, Carwash backflipped to Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic.

In the semi-final, Carwash danced to Singin’ In The Rain while the final saw them perform to LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem.

In their clue packages, Carwash made references to ‘letting it shine’, being used to performing in front of crowds, breaking records, sports, hot tubs and the Olympics.

Giving the panel a cryptic clue, Carwash said: “I’ve coupled up with a winning BLANK for a BLANK, purely professional.”

And offering up two lies and a truth, Carwash shared: “I get all my energy from vitamin C”, “I sound like I sleep in the meadow”, “I might look confident but I’m quite shy”.

Many fans as well as Davina had correctly guessed Carwash was Olympian Louis Smith.

One wrote on Twitter before the reveal: “#Carwash has to be gymnast Louis Smith? @MaskedSingerUK”

Another added: “I think Carwash is Louis Smith especially with those gymnastic moves and he won Strictly #TheMaskedDancer #TheMaskedDancerUK”

And a third agreed: “Carwash, Louis Smith, I’m putting it out into the universe that THAT was his voice”

Other guesses from fans and the panel had included various boy band members including Jay McGuiness, Max George, Harry Judd, Danny Jones and Howard Donald.
