Louis, who welcomed baby daughter Marley with Charlie in February, explained what made him sign up for the competition, saying: ‘The Masked Singer looks fun but you’ve got to be able to sing, whereas this is right up my street.
‘Having not done anything in lockdown apart from play too much Playstation – and get moaned at for doing it – it was a great opportunity to take a step outside this seriousness that we’re all dealing with and be a bit silly for a change and have some fun.’
‘It definitely lived up to my expectations, and more I would say. It’s just a great, fun concept.’
Before then, pro dancer and Diversity star Jordan Banjo, singer and media personality Louise Redknapp, and Burlesque performer Dita Von Teese were unmasked.
The Masked Dancer is based on the wildly popular format of The Masked Singer, which has seen stars including Sophie Ellis Bextor, Mel B, and Nicola Roberts compete.
The Masked Dancer is available on catch-up on the ITV Hub.
