At the end of the show the first celebrity’s identity is revealed.

Expect cryptic clues, epic routines and amazing reveals every night as the nation asks 'Who is Behind the Mask?'

Speaking ahead of the episode, Oti said: "My mind has been blown. You just don’t expect that level of dance so it’s really hard to guess who these people are because they are known for other things, not just their dancing skills.

"You don’t expect to see a Carwash doing backflips in a huge costume, it's crazy but it happens. And I know you guys don’t know what I am talking about but trust me you will be like how can they do that?"

Meanwhile Joel said: "I think you will be surprised.The names that are being revealed are so good. It’s been wonderful. There are a lot of people out there who would prefer to dance and not sing and this show is perfect for them.There have been some amazing names so far."
