MASKED Dancer fans are going for gold when it comes to Candlestick’s identity.
Visually, Candlestick gives little away, with a single flame atop a melted candle that leads to an androgynous brown and gold body.
Despite the limited outfit, viewers appear to have seen enough to suggest the person under the mask is Mo.
One simply posted on Twitter: “Sir Mo Farah #candlestick.
Another guessed: “#MaskedDancer only just catching up but candlestick maybe Mo Farah.”
Giving a rundown of their mum’s guesses, another posted: “A summary of my mum’s #MaskedDancerUK guesses: Skêr: Heidi Klum Prawn Cocktail: Shirley Ballas Pillar and Post: David Seaman and Frankie Poultney Odd Socks: Maisie Smith Candlestick: Sir Mo Farah.”
In the last episode Candlestick gave an energetic performance to Dangerous Love by Fuse ODG.

Some viewers picked up on the character’s tall height – which would rule out 5ft 7ins Mo.
Presenter Rylan on the other hand is famously tall, standing at six foot four.
Other popular guesses for Candlestick is Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa.
The celebrity behind the elaborate costume pulled out all the stops and revealed that they don’t have any dance experience and went to “Tinseltown” on their “way to success”.
Some are convinced that Ncuti, 29, is Candlestick after references to Doctor Who and his hometown Scotland.
Inititally, scores of people insisted Candlestick was ITV star ‘Judge’ Robert Rinder thanks to a reference to “hof”.
