WATCH: The Masked Singer returns to ITV

The wacky singing contest has proved hugely popular over recent weeks, pulling in an average of eight million viewers each Saturday, so news of a third series will no doubt delight fans.

So far, a number of big names have already been unmasked over the past few weeks. Last week's semi-final saw a double elimination with Dragon and Harlequin just missing out on a spot in the final.

Dragon turned out to be writer, comedian and former Bake Off presenter Sue Perkins, while Harlequin was 90s singer Gabrielle.

The ITV show has seen many other famous faces unveiled including Sir Lenny Henry, A-Ha frontman Morten Harket, Mel B, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, John Thomson and Martine McCutcheon.
