The Masked Singer UK is *finally* back on our screens, and we're so excited to don our detective hats once again.

The ITV series sees mystery celebs perform a song while dressed in costumes, and the panel - Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan, Rita Ora, and Jonathan Ross - are tasked with guessing who each is.

Past contestants have included the likes of Joss Stone, Nicola Roberts, and Ne-Yo - and we can't wait to see who will be taking part this year.

One of the mystery characters is Panda - here's what we know about who could be behind the mask...

Who is Panda?

In Panda's first VT, they said that they love an adventure and that being out and about in the wild is 'second nature' to them.

They said that Pandas could be solitary creatures and hinted they were an ‘introverted extrovert’.

Panda said that it was the first time they've been connected to Pandas, but not the first time they've been ‘this animated’.

Guesses include Helen Skelton, Emily Atack, and Michaela Strachan.

According to Betfair, singer Natalie Imbruglia is favourite to be Panda.

Other potentials include Rebel Wilson and Alesha Dixon.

Joel Dommett previously described Panda as his favourite character, saying: "One of my favourite characters is Panda. Panda is just really brilliant, they really get involved in the character, they bring so much to it. They are one the best characters on the show ever, they are brilliant."
