Dita Von Teese reveals cheeky Llama tried to woo her as Beetroot on The Masked Dancer

THE Masked Dancer's Dita Von Teese revealed that her co-star Llama tried to woo her backstage after they put a note under her door while filming the talent show.

The burlesque dancer, 48, was revealed as Beetroot on the ITV series on Monday after she lost out to Knickerbocker Glory in the dance-off.

Reflecting on her time on the show, Dita revealed Llama broke contestant protocol and slid a note under her dressing room door.

She said: "Llama slipped a note under my door so I can’t wait to see who’s in that costume.

"I was wishing I could have had a Masked Romance, totally in character of course."

The American star, who is dating Disney graphic designer Adam Rajcevich, also admitted that performing as Beetroot was "more nerve-wracking than a striptease".

She shared: "Every time I would feel inept and silly, I’d have to remember the big picture. You are a dancing Beetroot on the silliest show on TV."

Her comments come after Line of Duty fans are convinced Vicky McClure is Llama on The Masked Dancer.

In Llama's VT on Monday, the character noticeably walked past a fan which had a sticker with AC-12 on it.

As fans of the BBC drama series know, AC-12 is where the action happens and after her performance, Llama gave two lies and a truth.

One was: "I am a northern drama queen", and it left many viewers convinced Llama is Vicky McClure, who plays Kate Fleming.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "#MaskedDancerUK llama is vicky mcclure. no questions asked."

Another added: "I think Llama is @Vicky_McClure 100%."

A third tweeted: "With the AC-12 clue, surely Llama is Vicky McClure and she has that sense of humour."

Vicky even got in on the action, teasing fans with the tweet: "Been an aLLAM’ingly hot day!"

Others thought the fact Llama danced to 'Bad Guy' by Billie Eilish meant it could be Thandiwe Newton, who appeared in series four of Line of Duty.

One wrote: "Llama is definitely Thandiwe Newton AC-12 she was in Line of Duty and died a death more than once is westworld."

Another agreed, writing: "The llama is Thandiwe Newton, died plenty of times in WestWorld #MaskedDancerUK."
