The Masked Singer’s Jonathan Ross keeps guessing dead celebs are secret stars

Jonathan Ross keeps coming up with the names of dead stars on The Masked Singer.

The chatshow king has to try to work out which famous people are inside the costumes.

During the first series, he blundered and guessed a contestant was singer Natalie Cole – five years after her death.

And he made even more gaffes while filming the new series.

Jonathan, 60, said: “Last series, quite a few people pretended they got a lot of guesses right.

“But this series it is harder to work out who everyone is. No-one is going to be able to get a full house this time.

“It is so hard that I guessed three footballers who have been dead since the 70s! The clues we get given are really tricky. They only make sense once you know.

“There are a couple of contestants that are going to keep people completely stumped – even right up to the last minute. Viewers will not believe it.”

Jonathan is on the show’s panel of detectives alongside Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan.

The Masked Singer was a ratings sensation for ITV when its first series was shown earlier this year.

Celebs who were revealed included England football ace Teddy Sheringham, superstar singer CeeLo Green and the comic Jason Manford.

Jonathan is promising that the star signings will be even more sensational when the show returns.

He said: “Amazingly, the people under the costumes this time were even bigger and better than the first series.

“When you consider the restrictions the show’s team had to work under this time, they really have excelled themselves.

“We have some world-class singers. There are some you wouldn’t necessarily think of as a singer. You might never have heard them sing before. And yet everyone on the show sounds good.”

Meanwhile, Davina McCall doesn’t even tell her kids who the Masked Singer contestants are.

The mum-of-three, 53, has kept shtum since the series was filmed in September.

Davina said: “My kids asked me who the celebs are. But I said, ‘I’m not telling you’. They were like, ‘We’re your kids!’.

“The great thing about getting menopausal is I cannot remember who anyone was anyway!”

The series is back on Boxing Day at 7pm on ITV.
