THE MASKED Dancer final saw Scissors crowned the winner as Glee star Heather Morris after Hollywood actor Adam Garcia finished in second place as Onomatopoeia.
The spin-off to The Masked Singer has kept everyone guessing for weeks, and tonight the answers were finally revealed.
The final saw the three masked celebrities remaining, Schere, Onomatopoeia and Pearly King, dance to be crowned the winner.
After each of them performed for the judging panel, the vote offs began with Pearly King going first, who was revealed as Strictly legend Bruno Tonioli.
It was down to Onomatopoeia and Scissors as they battled it out.
After a showstopping dance off, Joel Dommett announced that Scissors had won, as she unmasked herself as Glee star Heather Morris.
She unveiled herself at the end of the show, leaving guest judge Dawn French stunned, while panellist Davina McCall, Peter Crouch, Oti Mabuse, French Dawn and John Bishop were also shocked.
The actress said: “I was a dancer for Beyonce, I did the Single Ladies tour, I was one of two back up dancers.
“I thought the Glee dance, that’s how I got the job.
“I have had the best time; this has made my heart so full.
“I have two boys, eight and six and we are huge Masked Dancer fans and he made a hippo mask during the pandemic.

Scissors kicked things off with lots of references to cheerleaders as they performed an upbeat routine to Aretha Franklin’s Respect.
There was another musical clue after Coronation Street stars Daniel Brocklebank and Harriet Bibby filmed a short segment, hinting that the famous person has appeared in musicals.
This was followed up by Onomatopoeia, who revealed they were previously in the charts.
They pulled out all the stops with a fast-paced number to Came Here For Love by Ella Eyre.
The judges were quick to guess Coyote Ugly star Adam Garcia, while Dawn guessed Jason Donovan.
But a clear reference to LeAnne Rimes hit track Can’t Fight The Moonlight cemented their original guess that it was Hollywood star Adam hiding behind the mask.
Third up was Pearly King, who dropped hints about paso doble dancing and Italian olives.
They blew the audience away with their powerful performance to ABC by Gayle.
The judging panel immediately guessed Strictly star Bruno Tonioli, with more references to ballroom and dancing.
The characters then performed for a second time, with Scissors with an energetic routine to Spice Girls, Onomatopoeia returned with a smooth performance to BTS track Butter and Pearly King pushed the boat out with their moves to Hard to Handle by The Black Crowes.
