The Masked Dancer has been cancelled by ITV after two series.

A spin-off from The Masked Singer, The Masked Dancer debuted in 2021 and most recently aired its second series in 2022.

The show sees famous faces fight to put on a standout dance performance while their identities are secret behind elaborate costumes.

Joel Dommett presented the second season together with panellists Oti Mabuse, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Peter Crouch.

There was no new show in 2023 due to the Rugby World Cup – and now the decision has been made to drop the show completely.

The Masked Singer will continue, returning for what will be its sixth series next year.

The most recent series of the show was won by Scissors, who was unmasked in the final as Glee star Heather Morris.

She told the judges: “My kids and I have been watching the US versions since the beginning. They are obsessed with the show. They have made multiple masks that we have in our closet.

“I really did it for them. I’m down for doing anything so dancing in a fun costume was a challenge for me and I was just excited for that part of it.”

At the time of writing the first two series of The Masked Dancer are available to watch online via ITVX here.
