She said of signing up: “After being in lockdown for so long, it felt like such a nice change to get out and not only dance, which is something I love, but keep fit and just thoroughly enjoy doing something fun.”

Louise added: “The dancing appealed to me because it’s something I love to do but it isn’t my sole vocation. It’s not my job but I do use it within my job. It just seemed so fun.”

In their first performance, Flamingo danced to Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya & Pink’s iconic song Lady Marmalade.

In their opening clue package, Flamingo made references to showbiz reporting, fashion & modelling and getting married to a farmer.

Giving the panel a cryptic clue, Flamingo said: “I once shared a BLANK with a hot BLANK. Not just hot, dangerous.”

Jonathan correctly guessed Louise while other popular guesses from the panel and viewers included Maya Jama, Dani Dyer, Laura Whitmore and Lisa Snowdon.

One fan wrote on Twitter ahead of the unmasking: “Flamingo is Maya Jama, this is the ONLY one I can guess with 1% confidence #MaskedDancerUK”

Another commented: “1000000% Maya Jama.”

Meanwhile a third suggested “Flamingo for me, I think Laura Whitmore #MaskedDancerUK”
