HOLLY Willoughby was fooled by her 'relative' who was tonight unveiled as Scarecrow on The Masked Dancer.
The presenter squealed as Tamzin Outhwaite was unmasked in the grand finale – and shocked fans when she revealed their family connection.
Explaining how their families are linked, Holly said: "We're basically related.
"My husband's mum and Tamzin's mum are sisters, we're cousins in law."
Holly even revealed the pair have spent Boxing Day together in the past – and she "couldn't believe" she hadn't guessed it.
The final saw four masked celebrities remaining, Zip, Carwash, Squirrel and Scarecrow.
After each of them performed for the judging panel, it was time for the first finalist to be unmasked.
It ended up being Scarecrow, who turned out to be former EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite.
She had managed to go undetected – despite her close relationship to Holly who was a guest judge for the finale.
"This is my favourite moment of the whole night," said proud Tamzin.
"It's been ludicrous, ridiculous and hilarious all at once.
"I used to dance and i haven't for a really long time."
Jordan Banjo was the first celebrity to be unmasked last Saturday night as Viper, and he was followed by Louise Redknapp as Flamingo on Sunday.
The other celebrities to reveal their identities leading up to tonight were Dita Von Teese as Beetroot, Eddie the Eagle as Rubber Chicken, Christopher Dean as Beagle and Zoe Ball as Llama.
