The Masked Singer UK and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me out of Here! are to combine for an ITV one-off, unveiled at an ITV entertainment showcase this afternoon.
The Masked Singer – I’m a Celebrity Special will see two of the channel’s biggest shows brought together as contestants compete in an I’m a Celebrity setting dressed as animals.
The Masked Singer host Joel Dommett will have to hunt for clues and Masked Singer judges Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan will return along with special guest star panellists.
The news comes at an ITV entertainment showcase a few weeks prior to Ant and Dec-hosted I’m a Celebrity returning to its Australia home after two years in Wales, a move forced by Covid.
The Masked Singer has quickly become a UK TV entertainment staple and will launch its fourth season in early 2023.
ITV Head of Entertainment Commissioning Katie Rawcliffe commissioned the special and Masked Singer UK producer Bandicoot Scotland is producing with Derek McLean, Daniel Nettleton and Claire Horton exec producing.
“We are thrilled to be able to celebrate this groundbreaking and hugely successful series with a special edition,” said Nettleton and McLean, the founders of Argonon-backed Bandicoot Scotland.
