The Masked Dancer arrives on ITV later this month, with viewers given the tough task of guessing who is beneath each of the costumes from their moves alone.

The new series, from the makers of The Masked Singer, will see celebrity contestants perform unique dances while wearing extravagant, colourful costumes.

Also playing the guessing game are show regulars Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall. Joining the panel is Strictly Come Dancing favourite Oti Mabuse.

Presenter Joel Dommett will introduce the 12 celebrity hopefuls as they bid to wow the panel with dances ranging from ballet to ballroom, salsa to swing and everything in between.
