The Masked Singer UK season 4 has been brightening up our Saturday nights as the nation once again tries and work out which famous faces are hiding under the bonkers costumes. 

If you are new to The Masked Singer then you're in for a treat, because the show sees twelve mystery celebrities, each playing a character in the show and hiding their identity while wearing an extraordinary costume. Each hidden celebrity then takes to the stage to sing in disguise and stump the panel and viewers alike.

Joel Dommett and his handy team of super sleuths, Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Jonathan Ross are back for another packed season of the nation's favorite guessing game. But will they work out which famous faces are hiding under the elaborate costumes? Or will their guesses be as off the chart as Joel's jazzy suits? And more importantly, who will we be adding to our list of Masked Singer UK winners

Here is everything you need to know about The Masked Singer UK season 4...

What are the costumes for The Masked Singer UK Season 4?

It feels like the outfits for The Masked Singer just get bigger and better every year, so let's see what whacky costumes we have got this year!

In a new exciting twist, there's a celebrity duo for the first time ever, dressed as 'Cat and Mouse'. Speaking of having a pair of singers for the first time, Davina said: "It's funny because you'd think, 'Oh. Well, there are two of them. If they're a duo, then it's easier to guess'. But I've been looking at them thinking, 'You're not a couple,' but then they might be acting like they are a couple."

Jonathan added: "So it makes it a bit harder to guess because the clues could be about one of them or both of them. So it's harder in many ways but it's a lot more fun to watch because you try and pick up from them what is their relationship. Are they people who are together off-screen? Are they people who work together? So it feels like a different element and it means that they can do different things on stage together as well. So you have a different kind of comic dynamic going on there."

Here are the costumes for 2023...

Ghost was the first celebrity to be unmasked, and when his costume was removed, he amused fans by revealing he had another costume beneath — a skeleton! Eventually, his mask was taken off to reveal his identity as football commentator and Cash in the Attic presenter Chris Kamara.

The second celebrity to be unmasked was singing legend Lulu, who was dressed as 'Piece of Cake'. Lulu found herself in the bottom three against Jacket Potato and Rubbish but was chosen by the panel as the next celebrity to be unmasked. Speaking of why she wanted to be on the show, Lulu admitted that she was doing it for her grandchildren, who love the program.

Cat and Mouse were the third celebrities to be unmasked after going head to head in a sing off against Knitting. The show's first ever duo were revealed to be music legends Martin Kemp and his wife Shirlie Kemp. Their son, radio host Roman Kemp shared his stunned reaction to his parents being unveiled on the show with numerous tweets and a video of him shouting "I knew it!". Speaking about why they decided to do the show, the husband and wife duo joked that they wanted to embarrass Roman, who believed that they were on a romantic getaway at the time and didn't know they had taken part.

Week four — Rubbish 

Joel Dommett and Stephen Hendry unmasked as Rubbish.

Snooker legend Stephen Hendry was the fourth celebrity to be unmasked - and no one on the panel guessed it was him dressed up as Rubbish. The Scottish seven-time snooker champion said of taking part in the show: "I thought it was so obvious because it was me. I love the show and it’s way out of my comfort zone so I thought why not let’s give it a go. I have had the opportunity to do other shows that would have put me in that same uncomfortable position, but being completely hidden made it so much easier for me to let loose and get my head around the challenge."

Joel Dommett is back with yet more jazzy suits and hilarious one-liners — hurrah! He's even been known to bust a few moves on The Masked Dancer UK 2022 stage... does this mean he could be belting out a tune or two for the new season of The Masked Singer?! 

There are also some new theme weeks, which Joel has revealed are his favorite episodes: "We've got some theme weeks, which makes it easier to write funny links because you've got a theme. It's a good place to start, makes it more ridiculous! But yeah, it's just the same as usual, but a step further. I think that's what we seem to be doing each time; we're making it more ridiculous, more fun. And, of course, you've got different reveals, so every season is going to feel different."

Who is on the panel for The Masked Singer UK season 4?

Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, and Mo Gilligan are back in their detective chairs as the guessing game continues for a fourth season. The panel will also be joined by some famous faces towards the end of the series, just like they have been in the past. 

Speaking of this year's celebrities and their singing abilities, Rita says: "I say this every time, but I really feel like it’s next level this year. There's a specific two that I feel are just mind-blowing. And there are some real singers in the mix."

Mo adds: "The coolest thing is when you first start recording episode one, it's seeing what characters they have, what costumes there are, and the dancers. But yeah, some of the people that are revealed this year, I'm like, 'wow!'."
