Joel Dommett has teased what’s to come for the new series of The Masked Singer, revealing it’s a “big step up” from the first.
The comedian revealed he’s already been given a sneak preview of the intricate and elaborate costumes that the secret celebrities will dress up in to perform.
Former I’m A Celebrity camp mate appeared on This Morning and spoke to Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary all about the new show.
He said: “I got a little PDF of the new characters and they’re amazing, a big step up from last year.”
However Joel also said he had no idea which celebrities would be taking part, explaining he found out when they were unmasked during filming.
Another change for the new series of Mo Gilligan joining the panel of judges, replacing Ken Jeong who is unable to make it due to coronavirus lockdown travel restrictions.
Speaking of Mo, Joel said: “It’s such an amazing addition. It’s going to be so good.
“I’ve known Mo for ages – very funny dude. I think he’s going to be brilliant.”
Mo will join Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Jonathan Ross on the judging panel, while Joel hosts the show.
Joel said: “Last year we all really got on well but it’s such a weird thing to happen.
“When you put four very famous people, who have never met before, together and they kind of bounce off each other.”
The show launched in the UK in January this year and it saw 12 famous faces get inside flamboyant costumes to perform.
Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts won the competition, while Jason Manford was in second place, followed by opera singer Katherine Jenkins in third.
The other celebrities to take part were CeeLo Green, Denise van Outen, Jake Shears, Skin, Kelis, Teddy Sheringham, Justin Hawkins, Alan Johnson and Patsy Palmer.
The incredible costumes included Butterfly, Chameleon, Fox, Unicorn, Queen Bee and Octopus.
The show drew in millions of viewers each week, peaking at 7.57m for its finale, so it seemed an obvious decision to make to bring it back.
Filming will begin on September 14 though it is expected there will be some changes due to social distancing guidelines.
