The Masked Singer finale smashes ratings as 10.6million tune in

The Masked Singer has smashed their ratings record with 10.6million tuning in to see Joss Stone, aka Sausage, crowned the winner in the series finale. 

The You Had Me singer, who was pregnant at the time of filming, won over the studio audience and was voted the winner in a final showdown against Robin (JLS’s Aston Merrygold) and Badger (NeYo). 

Bringing in an average of 8.6million viewers, the show is the biggest live TV audience of the year so far outside of news and sport, and peaked at 10.6million. 

Up more than 2million from the series one final, the bonkers and addictive ITV show had a staggering 47% audience share. 

Kevin Lygo, ITV’s Managing Director, Media and Entertainment, said: ‘In these testing times, we’re delighted that The Masked Singer has brought some escapist joy and light relief to so many viewers at home. 

‘At the end of a long week in lockdown we’re all coming together and trying to guess who’s dressed as a giant sausage, and quite frankly, it’s been a brilliantly entertaining tonic.’ 

Judges Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan were joined by last year’s winner, Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts, for the final countdown and big reveals. 

Launching on Boxing Day, the show has been eliminating famous faces every week as the audience and judges tried to guess their identities. 

Following the show’s success, it’s been heavily rumoured that spin-off series, The Masked Dancer, has also been given the green light by ITV to continue the chaos. 

Jonathan Ross has also confirmed a third series of the show is on the way.
