Who are The Masked Singer judges?

TV presenters Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall will be returning to The Masked Singer panel alongside singer Rita Ora.

BAFTA-winning comedian Mo Gilligan is joining The Masked Singer this year, replacing US comedian Ken Joeng who was unable to participate due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.

Speaking about why he decided to join the show, Gilligan said: “I haven’t ever been part of any family show. I grew up watching family entertainment shows on ITV like Gladiators, Blind Date so to be asked to be part of this really cool family show – and also a show where it’s a really cool guessing game – I was straight off I would love to be part of this.

“It’s a really feel-good family show, it’s just a fun guessing game and it’s been great to join the Detectives as we call ourselves.”

Returning judge Davina McCall discussed the costumes used on this year’s show.

She said: “I really liked Harlequin. I liked the drama of that. There were some very cute ones.

“We have a dragon this year who was extremely sweet. Kids are going to love that. Viking was hilarious.

“The Viking costume made me laugh so much. It really reminded me of Asterix and Obelix and reminded me of my youth in some way.”

Also returning is singer Rita Ora who said the show had “gone up a level” this year.

She said: “It’s more difficult for me this year now with guessing. I came in as the champion from last year, full of confidence and now I’m sort of second-guessing everything because they’ve made all the clues ten times harder.

“I think on purpose so I don’t win. The sabotage is unbelievable!”

Jonathan Ross added: “I stand by all my guesses, even the wilder ones.
“I still think that there is a very good chance one day Angela Merkel will be on the show.

“Even though it wasn’t this series and I’m not giving too much away there, I was fairly confident at one stage that she was under one of the costumes.”

Comedian Joel Dommett has returned to host the series.

The Masked Singer airs tonight at 7pm on ITV.
