ITV announces this season’s ‘The Masked Singer’ characters
Prepare to commence the new year with more cries of ‘take it off!’ as The Masked Singer returns to ITV and ITV Hub.
Hoping to join Queen Bee (Nicola Roberts) and Sausage (Joss Stone) in the exclusive Masked Singer winners’ club, a brand-new cast of twelve celebrities playing twelve characters in the show’s signature extraordinary costumes will be taking to the stage to sing in disguise and stump the panel and viewers alike.
New official images released confirm the cast as follows:
Lighting up the room with their performance, meet Chandelier
Bagpipes - the pride of Scotland will be hoping to hit the high notes
Hear them roar, it's Lionfish
Doughnuts looks like a sweet treat but will they run rings around everyone who tries to figure out who they are
Traffic Cone - they may be able to stop traffic in this high-vis high fashion costume
Bamboo-zling those who try to guess who’s behind the mask, meet Panda
Rockhopper will be making tweet music in a bid to peng-win
Hoping to go all the way and be crowned champignon, it’s Mushroom
Bang! Here comes Firework
Poodle promises to deliver paw-some performances
This singer is snow joke, it’s Snow Leopard
Is it a robot? Is it a bunny? No! It’s Robobunny
The audience for the thrilling conclusion of the last series of The Masked Singer peaked at over 10 million as figuring out ‘who’s that behind the mask?’ became a national obsession.
Now, Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan are 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.
The Masked Singer is produced by Bandicoot Scotland (part of Argonon Group) for ITV and the executive producers are Derek McLean, Daniel Nettleton and Claire Horton. Viewers can also catch up on both series of The Masked Singer on BritBox.
