With falling ratings hitting both X Factor and The Voice, ITV bosses are pinning their hopes on a new music show entitled The Masked Singer.
Sound intriguing to you? Nor me ……. But read on and you decide what you think, when you know how the show works.
The Masked Singer is a format based on the Korean version of the show, titled The King of Mask Singer.
It sees celebrities anonomously dressing up in wacky and wonderful costumes in front of a live studio audience, a star-studded panel and the nation.
The true identity of the singer is only revealed when they are eliminated each week from the competition.
After the show was bought by FOX in the US and featured Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong and Jenny McCarthy on the panel, ITV decided to buy the show as it was a massive hit across the pond.
There’s no actual date for the show’s debut yet, nor details of the host and judging panel, so watch this space …… I can hardly contain my excitement.
