The Masked Singer is about to unmask some exciting news, its host Joel Dommett has teased.

In an interview with, the TV personality who recently hosted the National Television Awards revealed: “We may or may not have some very exciting specials in the works.”

While the presenter was remaining tight-lipped on whether or not he could confirm this news, his hints seem very suggestive that more specials of the show which saw Virgin Radio’s own Ricky Wilson star earlier this year will be aired soon.

“It feels like it really worked last year, people really liked the I’m a Celeb special and it felt like a really lovely introduction to the entire series,” Joel elaborated.

The 38-year-old continued: “It was also just really lovely because those one-off specials [have] everything in the show - because you get that gratification immediately, you find out in that one show who everybody is.”

Joel was unwilling to share any info on what was planned for the next year though: “I won’t tell you what [the specials] are,” he said.

But he was willing to give his own wishlist for future potential special shows. “We could do a Loose Women special, we could do a Coronation Street special,” he suggested.

“When you suddenly start thinking about what the specials could be, you realise it’s fairly endless,” he continued, before even adding that the shows needn’t necessarily all be ITV affiliated.

“You could do a Strictly special,” he said, before finishing: “I really hope they start to do more of them because it’s really lovely - and you could just litter them throughout the year, as well.”

The Masked Singer is due to return to ITV1 and ITVX in January next year for its fifth series.

Whether or not any additional special episodes will air before then remains to be seen, so keep an eye on for all the latest news.
