The host of Strictly It Takes Two Zoe Ball is an early fan favourite to be the celebrity behind the Llama costume.
“Welcome to my own costume drama,” the personality said. “I’m a country girl at heart… eating all my greens because, after all, you are what you eat.”
Llama was also seen looking at a bill from 2013, which seemed to be another clue.
The final clue was: “My famous _ is known for being _.”
One Twitter user was convinced they knew who it was, writing: “Zoe Ball is the llama or I’m a Dutchman… #TheMaskedDancer.”
A second person agreed, saying: “Zoe Ball’s, a good shout for, Llama… The clue could’ve been for her dad being good with numbers, or husband being good with music… Hmmm… #TheMaskedDancer.”
Another person wrote: “llama is zoe ball im saying it now.”
Several fans have suggested that British boxing legend Chris Eubank may be hitting the dance floor dressed as Llama.
One user predicts the South American animal could be performed by TV interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
Could Eubank deliver a knockout blow to the competition, or will some Welsh wizardry be crowned the champ?
