Joel Dommett has said that he’s keeping his “fingers crossed” for The Masked Dancer‘s return, but that it “doesn’t matter too much” if the spin-off doesn’t come back for a second series.


Speaking exclusively to ahead of hosting the National Television Awards, the comedian said he’s still hoping The Masked Dancer is renewed for a second series.

“Fingers crossed it comes back. It’s a privilege to be a part of a situation where it doesn’t matter too much if it doesn’t come back because The Masked Singer is the most important thing, really.


“It’s nice to have that extra show in the middle of the year so we’ll see whether they both happen or just one of them happens.”

Based on the American show of the same name, The Masked Dancer made its ITV debut in May, with all episodes airing across seven consecutive days in the summer. A spin-off of The Masked Singer, the dancing competition saw 12 celebrities, disguised as various characters, perform routines for the panellists – Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan and Oti Mabuse – who would then try to guess which famous face was behind the mask.The first series saw the likes of Jordan Banjo, Dita Von Teese, Eddie the Eagle, Zoe Ball, Craig Revel Horwood and Bonnie Langford take part, however it was Olympic gymnast Louis Smith who won the competition, having been revealed as Carwash.As for The Masked Singer series three, the show’s executive producers told earlier this year that they were already planning some “very crazy, high concept ideas” for the upcoming series.
