The series is currently airing every Saturday evening as the celebrities take to the stage.

This should mean the final episode will air on Saturday, February 15 in its usual time slot of 7pm.

If the show follows the same pattern as the US version, the final episode will feature three un-maskings as the winner and runners-up are announced.

The final episode will not be a live broadcast as all of the series has been pre-recorded.

The length of the UK competition is shorter than its US counterpart which ran for nine and 10 weeks in its first two outings.

The third season of the American competition is set to begin on February 2 on Fox and will run for 14 weeks.

So far there has been no confirmation yet the show will be coming back for a second outing in the UK.

If it does return, viewers will be hoping to see it back as soon as possible and it could follow the US format which has two seasons per year.
