The audience for the second series’ thrilling conclusion peaked at over 10 million as figuring out ‘who’s that behind the mask?’ became a national obsession.

Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan all return to the panel, heading back to their detective chairs as the guessing game begins all over again.

Joel Dommett hosts the only show that can claim to have moved viewers to tears with a dragon’s emotional rendition of Adele’s Make You Feel My Love, and to have blown away audiences with a leather-clad biking Badger’s performance of Wrecking Ball.
