After weeks and weeks of speculation and suspects – including Mary Berry – we FINALLY found out who Maskface was on 'The Missing Crown Jewels'.

On tonight's (April 8) Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, the final part of the mystery caper aired.

And they wasted no time in getting straight to the point, as the crown jewel thief was unveiled to be none other than… Cat Deeley.

Yep, giving us all major '90s nostalgia, Ant and Dec's former fellow presenter from the SM:TV days returned to British TV screens with her nefarious plan of world domination.

The So You Think You Can Dance presenter revealed that she stole the jewels as revenge for not becoming a massive household name in the UK like Ant and Dec.

"After SM:TV, Ant and Dec went on to be household names, forgot all about me," she explained. "So I did the only thing I could do.

"I went to Los Angeles, cracked America, hosted a hit primetime TV show and got nominated for five Emmys!

"All I ever wanted was to be recognised at home, so I took matters into my own hands."

With the power of the jewels in her hands and the throne in front of her, Cat reveals that she wants to call her country Cat Deeley's United Kingdom – or CDUK for short.

We see what you did there.

However, with a bit of help from Emilia Fox, the two hosts manage to stop Cat from her world domination with a nifty bit of distraction...

After a 'Let's Get Ready to Rhumble'-soundtracked fight scene and a quick game of Wonkey Donkey, Cat was captured and the boys emerged as heroes.

In the end, however, Joanna Lumley tasks the two presenters with completing the job they botched the first time – guarding the Crown Jewels.

Let's hope they just don't get stolen again, eh?

Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway airs on ITV.
