Following reports from TV Zone last February that ITV had shelved The Masked Dancer after two series, new reports from The Sun this weekend suggest the plug has been pulled for good.

The Masked Dancer first aired in 2021, stripped over a week, as a replacement for Britain's Got Talent which was forced to take a year's break due to Coronavirus restrictions.

ITV quickly commissioned a second series, which aired Autumn 2022 directly against BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing, which saw ratings more than half as a result of the clash.

The last series of The Masked Dancer saw footballing legend Peter Crouch join the panel, alongside Masked regulars Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall, who were also joined by professional dancer Oti Mabuse.

Like its sister show, the series saw twelve celebrities stepping onto the dancefloor to take on character alter egos as they trip the light fantastic in a bid to wow the panel and confuse with their moves.

The Masked Dancer is available on ITVX.
