Candlestick talked about holding court, "winning but losing", and asked "do you take lemon in your water or just ice?".

They also said: "I went via Tinseltown on my way to success."

In Candlestick's second video, the clue "Dundee" popped up.

  • Olly Murs

Scissors said she had been described as a "funny girl" and "not the sharpest tool in the box", as well as talking about touring.

She also said: "These peepers are feline like they could use forty winks."

The dancer has teased links to Germany, The X Factor and sold-out shows.

  • Ashley Roberts

  • Kelly Rowland

Astronaut - Unmasked as Jesse Metcalfe

The dancer talked about exploring and adventures, as well as being "a wise man" and flying, but a cheese board also featured in his video.

Astronaut said: "You may have heard of me by the same name more than once."

  • Professor Brian Cox

  • Alex James

  • Bear Grylls

Odd Socks

Odd Socks talked about "turning up in lots of surprising places" and said they were "warm and cosy", with plenty of references to soap.

Pillar and Post

The duo talked about taking different journeys around the world to meet and were shown delivering a large cheque to a front door.

They also said they'd "seen stars together".

Clues showed the couple "on the bench" and a series of bottle caps that Peter Crouch thought related to football, and their week three routine looked very like a Dancing On Ice performance.
