Fans of The Masked Singer can expect the likes of a Traffic Cone, Chandelier and Mushroom to appear in the upcoming third series.

ITV has announced the brand new costumes the singing celebrities indentities will be hidden by when the programme returns to screens in 2022, and it appears they are more imaginative than ever.

This time around a tribute to Scotland will grace the stage as Bagpipes will perform alongside stars donning costumes for sea creature Lionfish and sweet treat Doughnuts.

Also hoping to enter the contest with a bang is Firework who could go up against mash-up creation Robobunny, or Poodle, who’ll surely want to be best in show.

It’s up to the judges to try and determine who is really behind the masks, with Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan returning to play the guessing game as Joel Dommett hosts once again.

As well as using the vocals of the stars to try and find out the truth, the judges are also provided with complex clues that can hint toward who the characters really are.
