FORMER Coronation Street star Alexandra Mardell has fuelled rumours she is behind the Fawn character.
The fun-loving soap star addressed fan speculation that she is involved in the show on her Instagram story last night.
Looking snug inside a cosy fur hoodie, Alex teased she was "keeping it in the family" after winning the latest Strictly Christmas special dressed as a reindeer.
She then followed her cryptic comment with a cheeky winking face.
On Saturday's show Fawn sang Tale As Old As Time, from Disney movie Beauty and the Beast.
The powerful vocal led some viewers to guess Perrie Edwards is behind the mask.
