Those of you suffering withdrawal symptoms from The Masked Singer have a treat coming to your screen this week, in the shape of the spin-off series The Masked Dancer.

Joel Dommett has returned to front the show, airing on ITV all this week, as 12 mystery celebrities don some pretty distinctive costumes and strut their stuff in their bid to baffle judges Jonathan Ross, Oti Mabuse, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan – as well as the folks at home.

Among those showing off their moves on the stage is Squirrel – but just who is hiding behind that fringed red-and-blue costume?

Here’s the clues we’ve been given so far to their identity…
