Host Joel Dommett and judges Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross will all return for the series, with Strictly's Oti Mabuse joining the panel for the first time.

Speaking about her new role, Oti said: "I’m so thrilled and honoured to be joining the panel on The Masked Dancer.  I’m a huge fan of The Masked Singer and I loved the US Masked Dancer so I just can’t wait to start on this show. As a dancer I will be watching the dancers intently looking for clues - it’s going to be so much fun!!!"
