Dita Von Teese has been unveiled as the Beetroot on The Masked Dancer.

The 48 year old kept judges Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan, Oti Mabuse and Davina McCall on their toes as none of them guessed correctly on 31 May.

As the four chanted "take it off!" the slender figure unmasked themselves to reveal they are American vedette Dita.

The panel screamed "oh my god!" as they couldn't believe they missed the clues about 60s styling and vintage dances she performed on stage.

Oti, 30, asked her: "Have you done any dance training?" to which Dita responded: "Yeah, I always say I was a failed ballerina. I wanted to be a ballerina more than anything in the world.

"My ballet teachers were like, 'Oh your arms and legs are great!' but I can't follow choreography."

Jonathan, 60, then chimed in to gush over how "elegant" she was during her performance as the rest lamented over how the "layers" clue was in relation to her career.

Oti explained that she thought it was Dita to begin with but crossed out her name as she thought it was "no way" her.

Dita is the third celebrity to be voted off the popular new ITV programme and fans flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on her performance.

"Never would have guessed Beetroot but happily surprised #MaskedDancerUK," one person wrote.

Another said: "Wow! I can’t believe @DitaVonTeese was beetroot on the masked dancer! #MaskedDancerUK".

While a third boasted they knew who it was all along as they added: "Thought it was #DitavonTeese when they kept on about layers #beetroot #MaskedDancerUK".
