Get ready to kick off the New Year with more shouts of “take it off!” as The Masked Singer UK makes its way back to ITV1.
Judges Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan are set to return to their roles as celebrity sleuths in what’s become one of the nation’s most beloved guessing games.
Joel Dommett resumes his role as the host, gearing up to present a fresh array of incredibly quirky and distinct characters.
A new group of celebrities is ready to vie for a spot in the exclusive Masked Singer winners’ circle. They’ll be donning the show’s signature, outlandish costumes, singing incognito, and aiming to baffle both the panel and the viewers with their hidden identities.
A first look teaser airing on ITV showcased a preview of some of the new contestants.
They include a grasshopper, cockerel, a storm cloud and a robot.
