The Masked Singer – what is the prize for winning the ITV show?

But what will the winner actually get for their weeks of singing in disguise?

What is The Masked Singer prize?

No mention has been made of a prize for the winner of ITV's The Masked Singer.

If it follows the format of the American version, the victor will bag a trophy – and no monetary prize.

After winning the US show, T-Pain won a golden mask-shaped trophy.

As far as we know the rapper did not receive any form of prize money – but people have claimed it's more about the "bragging rights".

What is The Masked Singer?

The Masked Singer is not really the correct name for this crazy show, as the singers are not just behind a mask but a detailed, bizarre costume.

Each contestant is dressed in a heavy and hot fancy costume in order to hide their identities and sing incognito.

The 12 characters for the UK show are Butterfly, Tree, Pharaoh, Unicorn, Monster, Fox, Chameleon, Daisy, Octopus, Duck, Hedgehog and Queen Bee

Each week the singers give clues to their identity, with their voices "masked".

The only time the audience and judges hear their real voices is when they sing.

It's then up to the show's judges – Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Ken Jeong – to guess the identity of the singing star.

The bottom one or two are eliminated each week after a vote by the audience.

The crowd shout "take it off" when the masked singer is about to be revealed

Joel Dommett is the host of the show that' s been dubbed "TV's greatest guessing game".
