Stacey Dooley has been unmasked as Prawn Cocktail on 'The Masked Dancer'.

The award-winning documentary-maker - who is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Kevin Clifton - found herself in the bottom two of the ITV reality show with Scissors on Saturday night's (17.09.22) show.

Panellists Jonathan Ross and Oti Mabuse had guessed the identity correctly.

On why she chose to take part, Stacey said: "Do you know I had the time of my life, I just wanted to pretend to be a daft, drunk, annoying aunt."

The 35-year-old presenter told the judges of the body-pumping routine: "I'm not fit at all, I just threw that in to throw you off."

And on why she chose the prawn cocktail costume, she replied: "I wanted to be something really daft, I didn't want to be anything sexy or girly."

Last weekend, Joanna Page was exposed as Pig.

The 45-year-old actress - who is best known for playing Stacey Shipman in 'Gavin and Stacey' - was eliminated after strongly hinting at her time on the sitcom during the clue package.

Joanna - who starred on the hit BBC series alongside Mathew Horne, Ruth Jones and James Corden - referred to the number 47 during the package and she later explained the meaning behind it.

She said: "It was Stacey's house number in 'Gavin and Stacey'."

'Desperate Housewives' star Jesse Metcalfe had been unmasked as Astronaut the weekend before.

Meanwhile, ITV recently defended its decision to air some of its most popular entertainment shows - including 'The Masked Dancer' - following the death of Queen Elizabeth.

The broadcaster said in a statement: "All programmes were pre-recorded before the sad news of Her Majesty The Queen’s passing.

"ITV’s main channel will continue to make changes to its schedule to broadcast the important state events of the coming days culminating in the historic state funeral with extensive and dedicated news coverage from our news teams.

"ITV will also be showing a number of documentaries about the Queen and the new King over the coming days. No advertising will run during any of the Royal coverage."
