They were Scarecrow, Beetroot, Llama, Zip and Knickerbocker Glory.
After they had all performed, the virtual audience decided to put Scarecrow, Llama and Zip through, leaving Beetroot and Knickerbocker Glory to perform again.
The panel then decided to save Knickerbocker Glory and unmask Beetroot.
They got the shock of their life when Burlesque superstar Dita revealed herself.
When asked if she had had any dance training, the 48-year-old replied: “Yes, I always said I’m a failed ballerina, I’ve always wanted to be a ballerina.”
However she admitted that while her teachers said she had nice movement, she “can’t follow choreography.”
Asked how she’d found being part of the show, she said: “I’d rather be up here taking my clothes off.”
She then added: “It was a lot of fun.”
