The Masked Singer had the nation gripped each week during last year’s series, with ITV viewers desperate to know who was behind the masks every episode and the new series had everyone wondering who the alien was.

Joel Dommett hosts the series and Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross are on the celebrity guessing panel.

Alien was revealed to be Sophie Ellis-Bextor the pop icon.

Host Joel Dommett broke down some of the clues: "Because you had the crime scene thing, murder on the dance floor - there was a moment when I thought you were my wife.

"The clue was the battle - am I right in thinking you were in an episode of Game of Thrones?"

Sophie then revealed she was in an episode of Game of Thrones.

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