The celebrities on The Masked Singer must wear a specific outfit to keep them from being recognised by ITV staff members backstage.

The Masked Singer is the nation’s biggest game of ‘guess who’ as celebrities dress up in wild costumes and show off their vocal abilities with a series of clues for Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan, Rita Ora and Davina McCall to work out who is behind the mask.

The stars must keep their identity a secret for the entire series until they’re un-masked, even laying low backstage with designated costumes to conceal who they are.

After the identity of Grandfather Clock was revealed to be ex footballer Glen Hoddle, he took to Twitter to share his experience and also revealed what he had to wear behind the scenes.

He wrote: “Yes guys you guest [sic] it right, it was me as the grandfather clock on the @maskedsingeruk. Such a great experience and so surreal. Thanks for all the lovely messages.”

In the photo of his disguise, Glen wore an all-black outfit complete with gloves, a face shield and a sweatshirt with the words: “Don’t speak to me,” emblazoned on the front.

Anyone else want one of those hoodies?

The Masked Singer continues Saturday nights at 7pm on ITV.
