The Masked Dancer’s Zoe Ball broke the rules of the show to send Dita Von Teese a secret note in her dressing room.

Famed burlesque dancer Dita was unmasked as Beetroot on Tuesday evening, with Zoe being revealed as Llama on Thursday

However during the course of the show, neither were allowed to meet, with the strict secrecy surrounding the bonkers dancing series key to making it work.

But that didn’t stop them from giving it a try anyway – with cheeky presenter Zoe managing to evade the security team to slip Dita a note.

Speaking about the message on Lorraine, Dita told Cat Deeley: “It said something about how excited he or she – nobody knew who the Llama was at the time – how excited they were to be there and nervous. So it wasn't really like a love note.

“I was just sort of intrigued because it was my first time with the Llama, and Llama was right next door. It was just a funny little note.

“We were all trying to figure out who we were, and they kept having to keep us from talking to each other or even gesturing with each other. No sign language, nothing.”

Zoe was revealed on Thursday evening, with guest judge David Walliams admitting he was proud that he correctly guessed her.

Explaining why, he said: “I just saw her, she can't stand still for a second.”

"We have spent some time together, David and I,” Zoe responded.

She then revealed that her children Woody, 20, and Nelly, 11, had no idea that she was working on the show and found out with the rest of the country.

Speaking about her own exit, Dita admitted she knew she wasn't a great dancer – and then made a cheeky suggestion on how to expand the series.

"Obviously, I'd feel so much more comfortable if this were The Masked Stripper… I would have won it," she said. "I'm all for that show.

"It was hard for me, one of the reasons that I became a burlesque dancer was because I was always a ballet dancer but not a very good one – and so that's how I came to burlesque."

"I'm pretty sure I don't know who everyone is on the show, but I felt like when I was there I was the only person that was not like a, like a hip hop or vivacious dancer or gymnast or someone that's kind of got a lot more dance experience than me," she added.

"I knew I was not going to win."

The Masked Dancer has been keeping fans entertained all week with 12 celebrities showing off their moves to be crowned champion.
