She wowed The Masked Dancers viewers with her impressive moves as lovable character Scarecrow.

And now, after her surprise unmasking, Tamzin Outhwaite is eyeing up a role as guest judge on the next series.

Speaking about how she loved playing detective behind-the-scenes, Tamzin revealed she’d jump at the chance of joining the star panel if the show were to return for a second outing.

Tamzin told OK!: “I’d love to do that. That would be the ultimate to go on and guest judge.

“I was a judge on this show called Don’t Stop Believing years ago, and I really loved that. There’s something lovely about sitting on that side of it.”

The 50-year-old added that she couldn’t help but play along when she came across the other characters, saying: “I was obsessed with guessing the others, as much as I was about learning the dances.”

“It’s a very slickly run operation backstage, so you never meet anyone else. But even when we had to rehearse together, I was like a proper detective, looking around going: ‘who’s that small and is American? I think I know who that is…’”

Continuing to explain why she’s fallen head over heels for the wonderfully wacky format and would love to be involved again in the future, Tamzin said: “There’s nothing negative about it as a show, it’s uplifting.”

“Even if somebody’s not the best dancer, you’re not there to judge their dancing.”

And it seems she’s already got a reputation of being a bit of an armchair detective, as Tamzin went on to reveal that she was given the nickname of ‘Miss Marple’ behind-the-scenes of the show.

Tamzin explains: “On the panel you’re there to be a detective and I’ve always been a bit of a Miss Marple about things. That was actually my code name [on the show].”

“I was Miss Marple to the drivers and Scarecrow to everyone else in the building.”

However, it sounds like the former EastEnders star might need to brush up on some of her sleuthing skills, as she admits she found it extremely difficult to guess her famous co-stars' top secret identities.

Tamzin explained: “I didn’t really get any right. Zoe Ball [as Llama] was the closest I came and that was on the last show – and that was me getting a hint from one of the other judges!”
