I’m A Celebrity contestants to perform on Masked Singer special

Two popular ITV celebrity competition shows are joining forces to host a one-off special.

For one night only, A-listers will take part in an I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! themed version of the Masked Singer.

The show will see contestants disguised in elaborate jungle costumes, named huntsman, wombat, dunny, and bearded dragon.

Celebrities will sing their hearts out on the show, in front of a celebrity panel who will be tasked with unmasking their true identity.

The panel includes The Masked Singer regulars Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall, and Mo Gilligan, as Joel Dommett hosts.

Joel, 38, also took part in I’m A Celebrity in 2016 before presenting the spin-off show featuring extra footage from the show

While the singers may not be facing a Bushtucker Trial, they will compete on an I’m a Celeb themed set, as viewers at home attempt to guess who is hiding behind the mask.

The one-off programme, called The Masked Singer: I’m A Celebrity Special, will air just before the first episode of the 2023 series begins on ITV.

The new season of I’m A Celeb is set to launch on Sunday, 19 November.

As the celebs head to Australian jungle, as usual they will be joined presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

Professional Boxer Tony Bellew is among the big names rumoured to be heading into the jungle, joining the likes of Hollyoaks star Nick Pickard, This Morning's Josie Gibson, TV chef Fred Sirieix, and retired Jockey Frankie Detorri.

Pop superstar Britney Spears' little sister Jamie-Lynn Spears will also reportedly join the show, with bosses hoping the 32-year-old will spill more details about her public fallout with the Toxic singer in recent years.

It comes just weeks after Britney called her sibling a "total b****" in her new bestselling autobiography, The Woman in Me.

Former Brexit party Leader Nigel Farage is also expected to join the show, and has landed in Australia. 

A TV insider told the Sun: “Nigel has been at the top of the wish-list for I’m A Celeb bosses for years.

“They’ve offered him a huge fee as they know he’ll drive up viewing figures. Ant and Dec will love this signing.

“Nigel’s the ultimate Marmite character and won’t hold back in camp discussions.”

The Masked Singer: I’m A Celebrity Special will air on 19 November at 7.30 pm on ITV1.
