The Masked Singer is back in the UK for a second series! But which celebrities will be behind the elaborate costumes?

After a hugely popular first series in early 2020, the guessing game is back for series 2 on ITV.

First airing on Boxing Day 2020, The Masked Singer will continue into early 2021 with 12 more famous faces singing classic tunes for judges Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and new member Mo Gilligan, alongside host Joel Dommett.

Series 1 featured celebrities and singers including Jason Manford, Denise Van Outen, Katherine Jenkins, CeeLo Green, Jake Shears and winner Nicola Roberts.

As each episode passes, we'll look at the theories and clues behind each mask, including Bush Baby:

    - A lot of their wardrobe has been seen on TV

    - Not their first competition – he’s “been training”

    - “In my last performance, the panel might not have said ‘Thank you for the music’ but they definitely had a great time.”

    - Was juggling with pineapples in their second VT.

    - “Am I a trickster? That’s the name of the game.”

    - “The winner takes it all.”

    Two lies and one truth game:

    “I’m associated with activities in the night sky.”

    “They say ‘Never work with children or animals’, but I’ve done both.”
