The Masked Singer - I’m A Celebrity Special

Coming soon to ITV and ITV Hub this Autumn 

A brand new one-off special sees two of the biggest shows on TV join forces in an exclusive TV event that will air on ITV and ITV Hub later this year.  

The Masked Singer is getting a jungle makeover with a TV special centred around the award winning, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! which returns to its native Australian camp after a two year hiatus.   

In celebration of the iconic reality series, our celebrities may not be facing a Bushtucker Trial, but instead will compete whilst dressed head to toe in extravagant and utterly bonkers outfits, as the panel and viewers at home attempt to guess who is hiding behind the mask.  Before the famous cast can scream, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, the panel will attempt to guess who could be masquerading in costumes such as a Witchetty grub or a kangaroo?

Hoping that they can win all of the stars will be Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan who will be joined by special guest star panellists who could prove as invaluable as a trip to Kiosk Kev’s.   Former jungle campmate and regular host, Joel Dommett will be back to preside over this TV extravaganza.   

And in a bonkers show-blending new twist, Joel will be put through his paces, where instead of earning food for camp, he’ll 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.”   

Bandicoot Scotland founders, Derek McLean and Daniel Nettleton added:

“We are huge fans of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! and are thrilled to be able to celebrate this ground breaking and hugely successful series with a special edition of The Masked Singer. The celebrities may think the jungle is an endurance test but singing on national TV dressed head to toe in a giant costume is no mean feat.   They may not be playing to win food for their campmates but they will have to hone their singing skills as they attempt to fool the panel and keep them in the dark.  With costumes that reflect all things Jungle, this is definitely a show viewers won’t want to miss.” 

The Masked Singer - I’m A Celebrity Special has been commissioned for ITV by Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning and Joe Mace, ITV Entertainment Commissioning Editor. The series will be produced by Bandicoot Scotland (part of Argonon Group) and the executive producers are Derek McLean, Daniel Nettleton and Claire Horton.
