Who won The Masked Dancer as British Olympic gymnast shocks fans as Carwash

British Olympic gymnast Louis Smith shocked fans as he was unveiled as Carwash and crowned winner of The Masked Dancer.

Fans thought Britain’s Got Talent winning dancer George Sampson was underneath the Carwash mask on account of some pretty identical moves, so when the 32-year-old pulled off his disguise they were amazed.

One said: “Still don’t accept car wash wasn’t George Sampson been convinced all week that it was him.

Another added: “More reasons to never believe twitter. You call convinced me car wash was George Sampson and it was wrong #fakenews”

Louis, 32 confessed that taking part in the telly show has been “bonkers”.

He said: “I love the singer version, I love dancing and I love performing.”


“I think this is a lot more physical obviously but I am definitely a better dancer.”

Louis claimed it wasn’t too hard hiding his participation from too many people, explaining.

“It was pretty easy keeping it a secret but was difficult not to tell my mum.

“They run a slick operation, everything is locked down.

He added: “My character is so fun and full of energy and is such a laugh.

“I’ve seen all the costumes and I think Viper and Rubber Chicken are my favourites.

“I loved the dances and creative team and the costume is epic.”

Carwash won the shoe ahead of finalists Zip, Squirrel and Scarecrow.

Zip turned out to be Take That star Howard Donald, while Squirrel was unmasked as actress and singer Bonnie Langford.
