The Masked Singer series 2 is finally here, and we can't wait to get guessing and find out which celebrities are hiding behind those crazy costumes. Here's how to watch The Masked Singer series 2 online anywhere in the world.

Series one of The Masked Singer proved itself to be TV's craziest guessing game when it aired earlier this year, and now The Masked Singer is back and promises to be a Christmas TV highlight.

Panellists Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Jonathan Ross are all back for the new series, but with Ken Jeong unable to them due to Covid travel restrictions, they are now joined by comedian Mo Gilligan.

Last year saw costumes like Duck, Fox, Daisy, Queen Bee, Octopus and Unicorn take to the stage, and this series will see even more outrageous costumes on the show.

The first episode of series 2 will have the panellists trying to guess which famous faces are behind the masks of Alien, Badger, Robin, Swan, Dragon and Sausage.

The second episode will feature Viking, Blob, Harlequin, Bushbaby, Grandfather Clock and Seahorse.
