Joel Dommett will be back to host the show alongside returning panellists Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Oti Mabuse.

They’ll be joined by footballing legend Peter Crouch who will be stepping in for comedian Mo Gilligan this season, with Mo unavailable owing to touring commitments.

However Mo will be back for a surprise appearance during the run together with more special guests throughout the series.

Last series viewers saw Olympic gymnast Louis Smith storm to victory dressed as the wonderfully outlandish Carwash with other contestants including Radio DJ and presenter Zoe Ball unmasked as Llama, choreographer and TV judge Craig Revel Horwood as Knickerbocker Glory and presenter Kelly Brook as Frog.

Who will be unmasked this year?

The brand new series of the Masked Dancer is coming soon to ITV and ITV Hub this autumn.
