ITV's very bizarre singing competition, The Masked Singer, will be returning for another series, according to host Joel Dommett who has confirmed the second series will begin filming in September.

Numerous shows and films have had to suspend filming in recent months as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, with very little news about when filming will restart and when shows that have been delayed - like Line of Duty and Stranger Things - will actually air.

But it looks like things in the entertainment world might be getting ready to start up again, with Joel Dommett, host of The Masked Singer, confirming that the show is due to begin filming its second series in September.

Speaking on Martin and Roman's Sunday Best, Dommett said, "There is going to be another series, I’m so excited that I’m now allowed to tell people," he continued. "They’re all planning it, they don’t know the rules for when it happens fully in September, but I’m so excited to be a part of the show I absolutely love."

The first series of the show aired earlier this year, with people quickly becoming obsessed with the bizarre nature of the competition, which sees celebrities dressing in full-blown disguises and performing for judges who try to guess who's behind each of the masks. Disguises from series one included a butterfly with a giant porcelain head and a glittery unicorn wearing a white suit. It was definitely something.

The first ever winner of the show was former Girls Aloud member, Nicola Roberts (who had been Queen Bee all along). She beat out fellow finalists, Octopus aka Katherine Jenkins and Hedgehog, aka Jason Manford, to take the top spot.

This feels like exactly the kind of weird TV we need after lockdown.
