ITV dance competition series The Masked Dancer returns for a new series with 12 new outrageous costumes
and live on Freeview channel 276
It is up to the judges to figure out who the celebrities are, but without even their voice to give them away, it will be a tricky endeavour.
Olympic gymnast Louis Smith became the first winner of the British version of the show - he had been disguised as a carwash.
Another dozen celebrities will be taking to the stage this year in a variety of wacky getups that they hope will be a perfect disguise.
What are the Masked Dancer costumes?
Derek McLean, managing director of production company Bandicoot, and creative director Daniel Nettleton said: “The Masked Dancer wowed audiences last year and we’re thrilled to bring back the show for another series of crazy costumes, mind-blowing moves and maddeningly compelling clues.
“With the mayhem, we’re lining up for 2022, we are already planning for the most bonkers series yet.”
These are the 12 costumes that will feature in season two of The Masked Dancer:
