Guesses for who Pig could be also included Anita Rani and Clare Balding.

Last week, Desperate Housewives star Jesse Metcalfe was the first contestant eliminated, as he was unmasked and revealed to be the dancer being Astronaut. 

Pig’s clues were all given in or around their bright pink countryside cottage, which was later spotted to be number 47 –  which was Stacey’s house number in the beloved comedy drama series.     

The final clue was: ‘I once made a right pig’s ear of meeting someone I really admired,’ which Joanna later explained as the time she met Dame Emma Thompson while filming Love Actually.
