The format of the show is simple - celebrities perform songs while dressed in elaborate costumes, and the audience, judging panel and viewers are tasked with guessing who is behind the mask.

As the show so heavily relies on audience participation, there had been some concerns that it wouldn't be able to go ahead because of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, according to a report by Deadline, there are plans to film the series with a live audience in September.

It will apparently be filmed for eight nights starting on September 14 at Bovington Studios, which are located north of London.

Members of the audience will only be able to sit with people in their social bubble, and social distancing measures will be enforced.
