After being unmasked in front of the audience Ball, who was disguised as Llama, said the programme was “crackers”.

She added: “You’ve got a massive, huge head, this huge nose and I’m wearing breeches, which are not desperately flattering, but I have had so much fun.

“It’s been such a laugh, I had such fun trotting about and anyone who’s thinking of doing it, do it.”

Dean, who was unveiled as Beagle, said appearing on the programme had been “great fun”.

“It’s nice to finally be able to breathe again,” he said.

“I’m getting on a bit now and new challenges are always nice to take on. I’m 63 this year.”
