Who is Pearly King?

We don’t know who’s behind the Pearly King mask, but Oti Mabuse may have dropped a huge clue.

The former Strictly Come Dancing judge is on the panel for ITV’s mystery dance show and appeared on This Morning to discuss it.

Reflecting on the new series – which was filmed ahead of time – Oti admitted how “weird” some of the costumes were, telling presenters Rochelle Humes and Vernon Kay: “They’re so weird! I’m almost nervous to say anything about the masked dancer because I’m giving hints! I’m actually shaking.”

Oti then went on to say that Pearly King was an early favorite, saying, “We have a Lion…Pearly King…I think he steals…or she steals the show.”

Realizing her mistake, she gasped, “See, I’m so nervous…why did they bring me.”

Rochelle and Vernon couldn’t help but laugh before quickly leaving the conversation.

Host Joel also opened up about the character, adding, “I think Pearly King is my absolute favorite. They’re really good and embrace the whole character. It’s amazing and what makes this show wonderful is is that it’s not really in any way a talent show.

“You can be an amazing singer or dancer but Pearly King is not the best country mile dancer but he embraces it and woos the audience, he really appreciates it and I think that can take you a long way. The more you like it, the more people like to watch you. It’s really fun.”
