has unveiled its latest mystery celeb, with Astronaut unmasked.

Astronaut become the first contestant eliminated tonight after being unmasked as Desperate Housewives star, Jesse Metcalfe, and we cannot believe it.

He was up in the bottom three alongside Pillar and Post and Candlestick.

But it was Astronaut who was ultimately booted off the programme by the panel this weekend.

However, none of the judges came close to Jesse in their guesses, with names such as famous physicist Brian Cox and Blur’s Alex James cropping up instead.

Fans were pretty shocked too, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Wow I didn’t expect @jessemetcalfe to be the Astronaut but you still did great tonight and a great show too well done Jesse! :) 😊😀❤️💙💛💜💗👏👍 #MaskedDancerUK.’

‘Not Jesse Metcalfe! #TheMaskedDancer #MaskedDancerUK,’ added another.

Someone else commented: ‘Mind blown by #MaskedDancerUK! Jesse Metcalfe mind!!!’

A viewer added: ‘WHAT?! @jessemetcalfe?! Wow! Never would have guessed that! What a booking too! #MaskedDancerUK.’

After the revelation, panellist Oti Mabuse shared: ‘This is insane, it just goes to show it could be anyone!’

The actor is best known for his portrayal of John Rowland on Desperate Housewives.

He has also had notable roles on Passions and played the title role in the film John Tucker Must Die.

The Masked Dancer airs Saturday nights on ITV.
