Twelve brand new celebrities will be 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.

Clue packages will accompany every Masked Dancer to help the panel and at home detectives crack the case of who the famous faces behind the masks are.

This series footballing legend Peter Crouch will be hoping he can hit the back of the net with his guesses alongside Davina, Jonathan Ross and Oti Mabuse.
