Are you a fan of The Masked Singer?

The programme will see the return of the celebrity panel attempting to guess the stars behind the masks including Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy. Eagle-eyed fans did spot, however, that one star was missing.

Presenter Nick Cannon was noticeably absent from the clip with actress Niecy Nash filling in. The rapper and presenter had to temporarily miss filming for the show due to testing positive for Covid-19.

After getting struck down with the virus, Nick then went into self-isolation while Niecy took over but it seems he'll be back at some point during series five. Season four ending in December, revealing singer LeAnn Rimes as the winner who was under the Sun mask, while singer Aloe Blacc (mushroom) came in second place, and former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter in third as Crocodile.
