When does the Masked Singer 2021 start on ITV?

The Masked Singer UK has given us a sneak peak of two masks that will feature in the upcoming season.

The next series of the show, adapted from a South Korean TV format, is just around the corner.

When does the Masked Singer 2021 start on ITV?

An official date hasn't yet been released, but we can expect the next series of the Masked Singer to return in January 2021.

The show was shot in September and has already wrapped up filming, despite uncertainty over coronavirus restrictions.

A glimpse of the first two characters to be featured in this series have been revealed.

One appears to be a green alien, and the other looks like a bizarre smiling sausage and chips.

10 others, and all of the characters' names are yet to be announced.

The singing competition is described as a "surreal and surprising guessing game that will see 12 famous faces compete to pull off the best performance, with their identity elaborately and imaginatively concealed behind the mask".

Host Joel Dommett told Digital Spy that despite the circumstances, the new series "isn't really that much different"

He added: "It's such a huge production, and the fact they've managed to get it done in such an insane amount of time."

"The only thing different is there are perspex divides between the panel. Pretty much everything is the same, the costumes are still absolutely mad, the suits are still mad, the panel is still crazy.

"If anyone thought they can't step it up from the first series, they have. It feels huge. The names are insane, like really insane."

Who is on the Celebrity Sleuth panel in season 2?

Rita Ora is returning to the Celebrity Sleuth panel for the wacky series.

Television presenter Davina McCall will also reprise her role on show.

Comedian Jonathan "Wossy" Ross will make a return alongside the ladies.

The one big change on the panel is that Ken Jeong won't be returning to the show. He has been replaced by comedian Mo Gilligan.

Mo is a British stand up comedian, much loved for his cameos on Celebrity Gogglebox.

Series' host Joel Dommett told Digital Spy: "He's so good, brilliant. It was nice to have someone new in the mix. He threw out a lot of hilarious names, as did everyone.

"The panel is brilliant this year. We're so lucky, everyone gets along – there are no crazy divas."

Dommett added that the show has come at a perfect time.

He said: "It feels like a really weirdly important show,

"The world needs something really silly and stupid, that you can watch with the whole family. It feels [like] there's a real excitement over Saturday night TV again."
