And they are convinced a telltale microphone in one backstage snap is proof of her involvement.

Earlier this week, the teen actress shared a stunning photo of herself in a tiger-print dress.

The mirror selfie shows Maisie looking glam as she pouts for a photo, with a tiny, skin-coloured headset mic visible beneath her long, ginger hair.

Commenting on the photo, one follower was convinced she'd given the game away as they wrote: "That's the same mic as what the Flamingo had in The Masked Dancer, WOW."


Another wrote: "You can even see her mic, it’s the same all the others that have been de-masked have had".

Others posted squirrel emojis while sharing their certainty that Maisie is the one behind the mask.

In addition to the suspicious microphone, viewers picked up on references to both EastEnders and Strictly Come Dancing while watching the ITV show.

Maisie plays Tiffany Butcher in the BBC soap, while she was a finalist in the 2020 series of Strictly.

Clues have mentioned that Squirrel has "street cred" and has been "TV royalty from an early age", with super cool Maisie first shooting to fame when she landed the role of Tiffany as a little girl.

Fans have flocked to Twitter to share their theories, with Viper, Flamingo and Beetroot already being unmasked as Jordan Banjo, Louise Redknapp and Dita Von Teese respectively.

Unfortunately for fans, The Masked Dancer did not air yesterday because of the football, but it will be back on our screens tonight where two more celebs will be getting unmasked.
