The Masked Dancer: Jordan Banjo is REVEALED as Viper

Jordan Banjo was unveiled as Viper on The Masked Dancer’s debut show on Saturday night. 

The Diversity star, 28, was unmasked after he lost out when the judges chose to save Knickerbocker Glory and Beetroot instead, but viewers were convinced he was Love Island star Tommy Fury.

Both judges Oti Mabuse and Mo Gilligan guessed Jordan’s identity correctly, but Davina McCall thought he was Anthony Joshua, and Jonathan Ross went with Tommy.

Jordan, while sad to be eliminated from the show first, said it was ‘all worth it’ because he was compared to Anthony Joshua on TV.

His clues included having a boxer in the family, referring to his father Funso who was a professional boxer, and his son Cassius, who is named after Mohammed Ali, formerly knows as Cassius Clay.  

He said of doing the show: ‘The past 12 months everyone has been in the place where it hasn’t been fun and something like The Masked Dancer, dressing stupid was just fun.’

Good guess: However, before he was revealed viewers were convinced Viper had been Love Island star Tommy Fury (pictured in December 2019)

Jordan added that he felt Oti ‘didn’t come to play’ as she immediately threw his name into the ring after his performance.

The Strictly Come Dancing star admitted it was because she’d previously performed with Diversity, as she said: ‘I know how you move.’

He also admitted that he found it hard not to laugh while Mo cracked jokes during the judge’s deliberation, and he claimed: ‘you got me man, I thought stop making me laugh!’

Jonathan also quipped: ‘I didn’t guess you, but to me you’ll always be a better-looking Anthony Joshua.’

The Masked Dancer sees 12 celebrity contestants perform unique dances, whilst covered from head to toe in extravagant, colourful costumes and masks, leaving the viewers and star panel to guess their identities. 

They take to the stage dressed as extravagant alter egos that will also include a carwash, a beagle, a squirrel, a rubber chicken, a flamingo, and a frog. 

Each fantastical costume is constructed with choreography in mind, and provides each dancer with plenty of limb freedom. 

Oti joined the show in March after it was confirmed that Rita Ora would not appear on the show, despite being a judge on The Masked Singer – on which the show is based.

Oti – who is the reigning pro on Strictly Come Dancing – brings with her her experience as a judge on seasons one and two of BBC show The Greatest Dancer. 

ITV revealed earlier this week that John Bishop, David Walliams and Holly Willoughby will appear as guest judges, alongside the regular panel. 

Holly said of joining as a guest panelist: ‘How the Masked Dancers are able to pull off the moves they’re doing in these costumes is mind blowing!

‘I absolutely loved joining the panel as a special guest and getting to play detective. You’re all in for a real treat.’

John added: ‘I went to The Masked Dancer recording not sure what it would be like, but it was the most fun I’ve had for a long time.

‘The show is crazy – but in a good way – and seeing the video wall with all the viewers and families at home watching gives it an extra spice. It was a really fun evening and I thoroughly enjoyed it.’

And David, usually seen behind the Britain’s Got Talent judging desk, said: ‘I had a blast being a guest judge on the show. It is so silly and fun that you can’t help but have the best time.

‘Joel and the other judges made me feel so welcome. It is much harder than judging BGT though. This is more like having to be a detective!’
