Joel Dommett has admitted he 'couldn't believe his luck' when ITV hired him to host The Masked Singer UK.
The bonkers guessing game has been a smash hit around the world, drawing over ten million viewers in the United States.
While you might have expected ITV to seek a big-name presenter for the best chance of success on this side of the pond, they've taken a bit of a gamble by signing Joel.
The comedian is no stranger to the broadcaster, having fronted I'm A Celebrity… Extra Camp and Hey Tracey on ITV2.
However, The Masked Singer is his first major gig on the main channel - and on primetime Saturday night to boot.
Needless to say, Joel was cock-a-hoop when the producers got in touch.
"I couldn’t believe my luck. I feel like I’ve won the lottery," he commented ahead of the new series.
"It feels like an amazing job, surrounded by a brilliant panel. It’s an absolute dream.
"It’s my first foray into Saturday night television and shiny floor entertainment. I was already a massive fan of the show from the USA so it’s an absolute no brainer to do it."
The 34-year-old is popular with viewers, having finished in second place as a contestant on I'm A Celebrity in 2016.
Speaking to The Sun recently, he expressed hope that The Masked Singer could land him more big roles.
"I feel lucky that a few new names are coming through and they plucked me from relative obscurity," he said.
"Each year I think I’m not going to work again and something comes up."
Joel is joined on the show by four big-name judges, who will witness mystery celebrity contestants perform in lavish character costumes.
The Masked Singer UK premieres on Saturday at 7.00pm and Sunday at 8.00pm on ITV.
