From Squirrel to Rubber Chicken: The Masked Dancer line up revealed

The cast of colourful characters taking to the floor in The Masked Dancer has been revealed ahead of the launch of the first ever UK version of the competition.

The series will see 12 celebrities slip into unusual and elaborate costumes as they show off their best moves for a panel of judges, who will attempt to guess the identities of the famous faces inside.

And the outfits are just as creative, eye-catching and hilarious as The Masked Singer, with the list of stars this time including Carwash, Zip, Rubber Chicken and Knickerbocker Glory.

The judges casting an eye over all the fancy footwork are Strictly Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse – stepping in for Rita Ora – Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan, who replaced comedian Ken Jeong on The Masked Singer.

Comedian Joel Dommett is back on hosting duties.

The new show follows the huge success of The Masked Singer UK which has seen the likes of Sophie Ellis Bextor, Nicola Roberts, Aston Merrygold and Joss Stone take part.

So ahead of the launch episode of what is bound to be another wild Saturday night ride, here is the line up of The Masked Dancer.
