Hit show The Masked Singer has been rocked by a leak.
Fans who were in the studio audience during filming – before lockdown – have been letting slip which celebs are taking part.
Everyone who witnessed contestants revealing their identities was ordered to keep quiet. But now some have blabbed and there are fears the show’s millions of viewers will all find out.
A show insider said: “The new series was filmed in front of a studio audience. That means countless people saw the big reveals of who the celebrity contestants are.
“They are all told they must keep it secret and not tell anyone. But quite a few have been telling their friends. During filming for the first series, it was easier to keep everything secret.
“But now the show is such a hit, there is a lot more interest and some people who were at filming sessions haven’t been able to resist gossiping about it.”
I’ve been told some of the names, but obviously I’m keeping quiet over who they are because I don’t want to spoil the fun.
The person who told me is well and truly off my Christmas card list!
Producers go all out to keep the identities of contestants top secret.
They are now terrified the leak will ruin the series. The insider added: “If the names become public knowledge it will be a disaster.”
Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross are back on the panel for the series, which starts on Boxing Day at 7pm on ITV. Comic Mo Gilligan is replacing Ken Jeong.
Let’s hope that Rita manages to keep quiet… we know she struggles to stick to rules.
