Davina McCall has admitted The Masked Singer gives her sleepless nights.

The star, 54, drives herself mad trying to work out which celebs are hiding in the costumes.

She told the Daily Star Sunday: “I go to bed every night thinking about the clues and the voices. It goes round in my head.

“And then the next day you write down all the names you’ve thought of and then one of the contestants starts to sing and you end up crossing them out. You think, ‘I don’t know what I was thinking guessing that person!’.

“I keep going down the wrong route. We really struggled with the guesses this series.

"The producers have become quite savvy.”

Davina is back on the panel alongside Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan.

Chandelier was the first character to be unmasked of the new third series on Saturday night.

Singing sensation Heather Small was exposed as the celebrity hidden in the extravagant costume.

Another mystery celebrity will be unmasked on Sunday night's show, as six more characters take to the stage in costume.

Speaking about doing the show, Heather said: "I’d seen Gabrielle and Joss Stone saying how much fun it was and in these most challenging of times a little bit fun is good for everyone."

On keeping it all a secret, she added: "I would say it is difficult, especially when you are with one of the nosiest people on the planet – my mother!"

She also mocked the judges' guesses for her character, saying: "Hilarious, as they were so off the mark," while she told the judges she had put a voice on to disguise her vocals.

Bagpipes, Panda, Poodle, Rockhopper, Snow Leopard and Traffic Cone will all perform during the second show.

Mushroom, Robobunny, Doughnuts, Lionfish and Firework have all made it through to the next round of the competition.

Fans will have to wait and see how will be crowned the winner of the 2022 edition of the wacky guessing game show.

The Masked Singer UK returns to ITV on Sunday at 7pm
