David Walliams confirms that he will have a guest stint on the panel of The Masked Dancer later this month.

David Walliams has revealed that he will be appearing as a guest judge on The Masked Dancer when it airs later this month.

The spinoff of The Masked Singer will see mystery celebrities perform dance routines while wearing elaborate costumes, as the judging panel - Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan, Oti Mabuse and Jonathan Ross - attempt to guess their identities.

The show is being stripped across a week later this month in the slot normally occupied by the live finals of Britain's Got Talent, which has been scrapped this year due to coronavirus.

"I did [The Masked Dancer] as a guest judge and it was really, really fun, actually. Such a lovely show," Walliams told Lorraine.

"I think it's on at half term when Britain's Got Talent would normally be because we've got no series of Britain's Got Talent this year."

The most recent series of The Masked Singer was a huge ratings hit for ITV earlier this year, with the final episode drawing in more than 10 million viewers.
