The programme involves a range of celebrities who are disguised in a costume of their choice. Each celebrity sings each week in the hope of progressing to the final - while the contestant with the fewest amount of votes reveals their identity before exiting the competition.

Busted star Charlie Simpson triumphed in this year’s competition while wearing a rhino outfit. He joins a distinguished group of former winners such as Nicola Roberts, Joss Stone and Natalie Imbruglia.
