Now in its third season, The Masked Singer sees panellists Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Rita Ora get into super-sleuthing mode as they try to guess stars singing behind weird and wonderful costumes.
So far, fans have seen names such as Heather Small, Will Young and Gloria Hunniford unmasked, with last Saturday’s edition seeing tennis star Pat Cash the latest to have to be unmasked.
The show also relies on some audience participation, with those watching the action unfold in person getting to vote for who they want to see go through into the next round.
Here’s everything you need to know about how you can get to sit in the audience yourself and work out exactly who’s behind the mask.
Is The Masked Singer filmed live in front of an audience?
The audience was limited in the second season of the show due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but they have upped the crowd numbers in season three.
Host Joel Dommett said that the inclusion of a live audience has a ‘big impact’.
He told the Radio Times: ‘It makes such an impact on the show. We had so much fun and just seeing people there who are full families, like kids and grannies and parents.
‘It was honestly such a blast to film. We had such a fun time.’
In order to keep the identity of contestants a secret, not all audience members get to see the ‘unmasking’ at the recording.
‘Only six producers who know who everybody is,’ Joel shared on Sunday Brunch. ‘We have absolutely no idea. We record the whole show and they go to take off the mask and we then get rid of the audience so they can then keep it a secret.’
He continued: ‘We get rid of the audience and then they take it off and we reveal who it is. They’re very angry about that.
