Jordan Banjo was the first person to leave The Masked Dancer competition on Saturday night's show.

Judges Davina MaCall, Jonathan Ross, Oti Mabuse and Mo Gilligan were left with jaws on the floor when the professional dancer was unmasked on the ITV programme.

The Diversity star explained he hadn't informed any of his co-stars that he was taking part, except from Ashley Banjo.

He said: "Ash knows. He might fire me now."

Earlier on in the show, Oti and Mo clashed after they'd both came up with the same guess for Viper.

Comedian and host Joel Dommett turned to Davina first on panel after Viper's performance had finished.

The former Big Brother star believed Viper to be Tommy Fury as there had been a "boxing" reference, along with a "got a text" phrase, leading her to think that was a Love Island hint.

Joel approached Oti next for her feedback.

The Strictly professional amazed everyone as she guessed "Jordan Banjo".

Funnyman Mo, was furious claiming he'd said that earlier and Oti had stolen his guess from him.

He said: "Look, I've written down Jordan Banjo on this paper" explaining that he'd told the panel his guess already.

Oti wasn't having any of it that's she'd cheated and shot down his claims she'd taken his idea.

After Vaper had been unmasked Mo blurted out: "I knew it man."

Other panel members were more taken back that the first person to leave the competition was in fact a professional dancer.

The judges opted to send Viper home and decided to keep Knickerbocker Glory and Beetroot instead.

The Masked Dancer airing every night from Saturday May 29 to June 5.
