The Masked Singer is based on the South Korean version of the show King of Mask Singer - in which celebrity's identities are hidden until they are unmasked on stage in a wild guessing game.

The show is one of Davina's more fun projects since splitting from her husband of 17 years in 2017.

Recently, fitness fanatic and telly hosting pro Davina has bared all about the split that left her in "emotional turmoil".

Following the break up from the father of her three children, Holly, 18, Tilly, 16, and Chester, 13, Davina is thought to have been dating celeb hair stylist, Michael Douglas.
