Wilde's birth comes after his dad hosted the National Television Awards earlier this month month. Speaking ahead of the ceremony, Dommett admitted that the organisers had a contingency plan if his wife went into labour on the night.

"It's live so there's breaks so I'm thinking I'm just going to keep my phone on me and just check during the breaks and then I can come back after a break and suddenly it's Craig Doyle," he joked, alluding to a last-second host switch.

As for the future of The Masked Singer UK, Dommett recently teased even more specials in the pipeline.

"It feels like it really worked last year, people really liked the I'm a Celeb special and it felt like a really lovely introduction to the entire series.

"It was also just really lovely because those one-off specials, it has everything in the show — because you get that gratification immediately, you find out in that one show who everybody is," he said.

"It works really well, and so, yeah, hopefully we've got some specials planned this year — but I won't tell you what they are or whether they're happening... wink, wink."

The Masked Singer and The Masked Dancer air on ITV1 and ITVX.
