Joel Dommet hosts the show as the three remaining incognito celebrities battling it out to be crowned the ultimate champion. The identities of all three finalists - Fawn, Phoenix, and Rhino - are revealed during the final and fans are also treated to a special performance from all 12 contestants from this year’s series.
Who won the Masked Singer in 2022?
Natalie Imbruglia was the winner of the ITV series last year. She was revealed to be Panda and crowned the winner in the grand final 12 months ago.
Throughout her run as Panda, Imbruglia dropped hints about her identity, talking about how she is a “solitary creature” and that she had “been animated” in the past, referring to when she voiced the animated character Koala in Robbie the Reindeer in Legend of the Lost Tribe.
A more obscure clue included a compass which was missing its E - referring to the fact that she grew up in [N]ew [S]outh [W]ales, in Australia. The judges’ guesses regarding her identity ranged from X Factor judge Cheryl Cole to Bridget Jones’s Diary star Renée Zellweger. Before the final aired, the bookies had pegged Amanda Holden as the most likely to be behind the mask, with odds of 10/11.
What does the winner of Masked Singer get?
A new winner of the Masked Singer will be crowned this weekend. One of Fawn, Phoenix or Rhino will win the fourth season of the hit ITV series.
But what will the winner receive? Unlike other reality shows, there is no trophy or prize money for winning The Masked Singer.
