I wasn't planning to watch this season but I was flicking channels after the Arsenal and now I'm hooked again. These are my guesses for who's behind the masks this week:

Sausage - Sheridan Smith
Robin - Aston Merrygold
Badger - Ne-Yo
Dragon - Sandi Toksvig

I loathe these shows with a passion but Sausage completely drew me in!
I have a love-hate relationship with The Masked Singer. I know it's not not high-brow TV and so many aspects of the show annoy me. I I didn't watch the first few weeks because I thought the last season was completely mad but I started watching on Saturday and got completely absorbed in the show. It's bonkers but strangely entertaining.

In Germany, we've had 3 seasons of the "Masked Singer" so far and the 4th one will start in February, I think.
I basically only watch because of the costumes :D

Season 1: All contestants sing "Bohemian Rhapsody" together

Season 2 Recap:

Season 3 Recap:

Do they use have profile celebrities in Germany or minor ones like ex-reality TV stars or obscure ex-soap opera actors? What amazes me about the UK version is the quality of singers they use. In our first series they had Kelis, CeeLo Green, Jake Shears and Katherine Jenkins, amongst others.

Compared to other shows like "I'm a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here" or "Celebrity Big Brother", the quality of the contestants on "The Masked Singer" is quite high. On the former shows, the contestants usually consist of people who already took part in other reality shows, so it's basically always the same trashy faces.

The first season was won by singer Max Mutzke (who represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004). Among the contestants were also veteran actor Heinz Hoenig; Bulgarian singer Lucy Diakovska (who was part of Germany's most successful girl band "No Angels" in the 2000s; they represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008); international Swedish model Marcus Schenkenberg; former soap actress Susan Sideropoulos; and schlager singer and former child star Stefanie Hertel.

The second season was won by actor Tom Beck. Among the contestants were also Swiss singer Stefanie Heinzmann; comedy legend Dieter Hallervorden (85 years old); tv host Sonja Zietlow ("I'm a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here" – which airs on a rival network); actress Rebecca Immanuel; and teen idol Mike Singer (who's recently had three #1 albums in the span of three years).

The third season was won by singer Sarah Lombardi (who became famous through "German Idol" but also thanks to her much publicized divorce). Among the contestants were also veteran actress Veronica Ferres; tv host Jochen Schropp ("Big Brother"); Dutch tv personality Sylvie Meis; comedian Wigald Boning; Greek singer Vicky Leandros (represented Luxembourg in the Eurovision Song Contests 1970 and 1972); tv personality Daniela Katzenberger and her husband Lucas Cordalis; childrens' tv host Ben Blümel; celebrity chef Nelson Müller; and musician Alec Völkel (panelist on "The Voice of Germany").

Unlike the US or the UK, Germany doesn't really have that many high-profile actors or singers – or at least not many that are known outside of Germany. There are of course exceptions, but these people wouldn't take part in such competitions.
