The Masked Dancer is a British reality dancing competition TalentShow television series that began airing on Creator/{{ITV}} in 2021, and is a spinoff of ''Series/TheMaskedSingerUK''.

Twelve contestants dressed in elaborate costumes go head-to-head with each other, with a panel of judges (Mo Gilligan, Davina [=McCall=], Oti Mabuse, and Creator/JonathanRoss) and a virtual audience (since the first series was filmed during the UK's second UsefulNotes/COVID19Pandemic lockdown) voting for their favourite performance. The losers of each match-up gather at the end of the episode, and the judges decide which contestant will be eliminated and revealing their identity.
