When will The Masked Singer be back on TV?

The Masked Singer returns to ITV on Boxing Day at 7pm. The programme is being billed as a ‘new series’.

The first series of The Masked Singer in the UK started last January. It lasted for several weeks into February.

The second series seems to be starting a couple of weeks earlier than might have been expected. Nonetheless, it will no doubt continue through into early 2021.

The costumes are still absolutely mad, the suits are still mad, the panel is still crazy.

The series was filmed in September. Despite production going ahead during the coronavirus pandemic, host Joel Dommett has noted the new series hasn’t changed all that much.

He said: “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.”
