The nation went wild for The Masked Singer UK when it aired on ITV earlier in the year.


A bunch of celebrities donned elaborate and enormous costumes to conceal their identities and it was down to a panel of famous judges to determine who was hiding behind the masks.

The ratings hit was fronted by Joel Dommett, and he’s bringing the format back for a smaller version while the UK is in lockdown.

It’s all a part of his show, Home Alone with Joel Dommett, where tonight (26th April), he will be joined by Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross for a chat.

But, the trio will all play a scaled down version of The Masked Singer with three celebrities covering their faces while the sing a quick song.

ITV have released a clip from tonight’s episode as Ross, McCall and Dommett ponder over the celebrities.

Dommett says to his pals: “I have missed you since The Masked Singer, guys.

“This is why I decided to arrange this very special lockdown version of The Masked Singer. I thought it would cheer us up in these dark times.

“I have arranged three masked singers and even I don’t know who they are, pick your favourite and then they will reveal who they are.”
