This weekend they will all perform together for the first time this year, each singing another new song in a bid to impress the studio audience and panel.

At the end of the evening one more celebrity will be unmasked.

Joel Dommett hosts The Masked Singer UK 2021 joined by a panel of Rita Ora, Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan and Jonathan Ross.

Speaking about the latest series, Joel shared: “I genuinely felt like everyone was amazing this series. This year we have some incredible voices. The level of singers is higher.

“Performance wise – last year Queen Bee blew us away and every song gave you goosebumps and tingles.

“This year there’s definitely at least four or five that had that effect on us and it made every show epic. It feels more epic this year I think.

“Full credit to the production because filming with more restrictions and within the rules and guidelines, to make a show feel more epic this time was really difficult and I think we really achieved it.

“Even though every singer is within a full costume I still had to be two metres away from them.

“I will say that the staging is amazing this year. Every performance looks really different.”

Meanwhile when it comes to the panel’s guesses this year, Davina revealed: “I did a bit better. Better than last time anyway. I don’t even know who won in the guessing but it was quite close.

“We all did a bit better this time though. There were quite a few weeks though where none of us had any idea.

“There were quite a few people where none of us knew who it was which was so nice because when they took off their masks we were like oh my God, SO far away from the correct answer.”
