Who has left The Masked Singer?

Ken Jeong – who also appears on the US version – will not be a regular part of the second season due to the travel restrictions but hopes to make a guest appearance.

Jeong said: “I had so much fun on season 1 of The Masked Singer UK, I told the team nothing short of a global pandemic would stop me from coming back for Season 2.

"I am gutted because I truly love working with Joel, Rita, Davina, Jonathan and everyone at Bandicoot and ITV.

"I hope when things start to normalise I can return and offer my expertise on all things British, like the Australian Open.

"Please take care, be safe, and as the title of the show suggests, wear a mask.”

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 He has been replaced by comedian Mo Gilligan.

I'm A Celeb star Joel Dommett presents the show that was adapted from the South Korean format King of Mask Singer.

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."
