'The Masked Singer' is to return with an 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' special.

Two of the biggest shows on TV will join forces for a one-off special later this year that centres around 'I'm A Celebrity' returning to the Australian jungle after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

In celebration of the iconic ITV series, celebrities will not be facing a Bushtucker Trial but will instead compete whilst dressed head to toe in extravagant and completely bonkers outfits as the panel and viewers at home try and guess who is behind the mask.

Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan will hope they can win all of the stars and will be joined by special guest star panellists as they try and find out who could be masquerading in costumes such as Witchetty grub or a kangaroo.

Former 'I'm A Celebrity' campmate Joel Dommett will return to host the special, which will air on ITV this autumn.

In a show-blending twist, Joel will be tasked with hunting down those all-important mind-bending clues for the panel.

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV's Head of Entertainment Commissioning, said: "What a perfect way to celebrate the return of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' than with a unique mash up of two hugely successful series.

"Viewers will get to enjoy all things Jungle with a wonderfully bonkers Masked Singer twist. With flamboyant costumes that pay homage to the iconic series as it returns to Australia, families will be able to play alongside our panel in TV's favourite guessing game."
