    The Masked Dancer 's grand finale took place tonight and Pearly King was unmasked as Bruno Tonioli before being booted off the beloved guessing programme.

    Narrowly missing out on second or first place, Bruno from Strictly Come Dancing has been crowned as the third place contestant on this year's series of the beloved ITV programme.

    Some eagle-eyed fans had guessed the identity of Pearly King's elaborate costume correctly, but some got it very wrong indeed.

    Many fans thought that EastEnders star Danny Dyer was behind the fluffy mask because of the nods to the east end of London.

    But fans were very wrong and the identity of the Pearly King turned out to be Italian Strictly icon Bruno.

    The final two remaining masked celebrities will now battle it out to be crowned as the winner of Masked Dancer 2022.

    Last week there was a double axing that saw a popular girlband member and a gold-medal-winning Olympian unmasked before being sent home.

    Kimberley Walsh was behind the identity of Odd Socks, while Denise Lewis was behind Sea Slug's elaborate mask.
