The wacky singing show sees a line up of celebs competing to give the best musical performance all while hiding behind elaborate masks.

An all star panel of Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Ken Jeong together with a studio audience vote for their favourite performances all while trying to guess the identity of the singers.

However this week Ken is replaced by guest judge Donny Osmond.

Davina explained the change: "I have to say to you, Donny Osmond came on the panel as a guest as Ken couldn’t make it for two weeks. He was quite tough. He was slightly critiquing.

"I thought, 'Get you, Donny!'"

Donny is no stranger to the show, taking part in the American version as Peacock where he was named as runner up in 2019's first series

Ken is also a former The Masked Singer contestant.

He revealed: "I actually participated in the original Korean version of The Masked Singer. I dressed as a Golden Pig, because 2019 is the year of the Golden Pig.

"I had so much fun and gained a deep appreciation of what it's like to be constrained in a masked costume and expected to deliver a quality performance with high stakes."

The Masked Singer UK continues this Saturday night on ITV.
