On signing up for the show, Eddie said: “I always love a challenge and I love dancing too.

“I loved being a Rubber Chicken. I could really be silly and play with the character but I did find the costume quite restrictive.”

In their opening dance routine, Rubber Chicken performed to The Swinging Blue Jeans hit Hippy Hippy Shake. For their second performance, they danced to Mambo No 5.

In a clue package, they made references to comedy, legal work, dogs and woks.

Giving a cryptic clue, Rubber Chicken said: “It’s no secret that my BLANK were strong and often BLANK too.”

And offering up two lies and a truth, Rubber Chicken shared: “This isn’t my only fancy dress”, “I’m best served on the rocks”, “My chick is a purple dinosaur”.

Popular guesses from the panel and viewers had included Bradley Walsh, Joe Pasquale, Harry Hill and Bob Mortimer.

One viewer wrote on Twitter: “Bradley Walsh – all day long!”

Another agreed: “I feel quite confident that rubber chicken is Bradley Walsh! Lots of Chase references and Brad is always funny like chicken too! #TheMaskedDanceruk”

A third added: “Rubber Chicken has got to be Bradley Walsh! #MaskedDancerUK”

While another commented: “No idea why, but I’m going Michael Macintyre for rubber chicken. Or Jonny Vegas #MaskedDancerUK”
