Meet the gang

The Masked Dancer, a spinoff from hit reality show The Masked Singer, starts this weekend.

The Masked Dancer will see celebrity contestants perform routines while disguised in an extravagant costume, as a panel tries to guess their identities.

Joel Dommett is back on hosting duties, while Strictly's Oti Mabuse replaces Rita Ora, alongside Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall.

Contestants include Frog, Beetroot, Viper, Rubber Chicken, Flamingo, Knickerbocker Glory, Llama, Zip, Car Wash, Beagle and Scarecrow.

Unlike on The Masked Singer, viewers will be able to hear the celebrity's real voices on the show.

Dommett said viewers are in for some serious shocks.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, he said: "My assumption with The Masked Dancer was that the names would be lesser than The Masked Singer.

"But I can honestly tell you the names are equal to, if not better.

"There are some amazing reveals. One in particular completely took us all by surprise.

"You just wouldn't expect someone like this to do the show. It's the biggest reaction we've had."

Will you be watching?

The Masked Dancer airs Saturdays 7pm on Virgin Media One.
