Speaking to OK! magazine, he said: "My assumption with The Masked Dancer was that the names would be lesser than The Masked Singer. But I can honestly tell you the names are equal to, if not better.

"There are some amazing reveals. One in particular completely took us all by surprise. You just wouldn’t expect someone like this to do the show. It’s the biggest reaction we’ve had."

The Masked Dancer, which starts on ITV this Saturday, is a spin-off show to The Masked Singer.

Like its sister show, it will see a bunch of mystery celebrities perform in front of an audience and panel in an elaborate costume.

As the name suggests, though, they will do a dance rather than a song.

Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan will return to the panel, with Strictly star Oti Mabuse also joining the line-up.

The Masked Dancer starts at 7pm on ITV
