The Masked Singer | ITV 29 January 7:00pm

Episode 6

Seven Masked Singers remain as the nation’s favourite guessing game continues.

The Masked Singer is TV’s craziest guessing game, where celebrities perform undercover in elaborate costumes, keeping their true identities under wraps.

As each celebrity performs, our superstar panel of detectives are left to decipher the clues and unlock TV’s best kept secret.

In tonight’s episode, it’s a double elimination as seven become five.

At the end of show two celebrities will be unmasked and their identities revealed.

Hosted by Joel Dommett, who is joined by panellists Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan, plus special guest Olly Alexander.

Series overview

Prepare to commence the new year with more cries of ‘take it off!’ as The Masked Singer returns to ITV and ITV Hub.

Hoping to join Queen Bee (Nicola Roberts) and Sausage (Joss Stone) in the exclusive Masked Singer winners’ club, a brand-new cast of twelve celebrities playing twelve characters in the show’s signature extraordinary costumes will be taking to the stage to sing in disguise and stump the panel and viewers alike.

New official images released today confirm the cast as follows:

Lighting up the room with their performance, meet Chandelier

Bagpipes – the pride of Scotland will be hoping to hit the high notes

Hear them roar, it’s Lionfish

Doughnuts looks like a sweet treat but will they run rings around everyone who tries to figure out who they are

Traffic Cone – they may be able to stop traffic in this high-vis high fashion costume

Bamboo-zling those who try to guess who’s behind the mask, meet Panda

Rockhopper will be making tweet music in a bid to peng-win

Hoping to go all the way and be crowned champignon, it’s Mushroom

Bang! Here comes Firework

Poodle promises to deliver paw-some performances

This singer is snow joke, it’s Snow Leopard

Is it a robot? Is it a bunny? No! It’s Robobunny

The audience for the thrilling conclusion of the last series of The Masked Singer peaked at over 10 million as figuring out ‘who’s that behind the mask?’ became a national obsession. Now, Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan are heading back to their detective chairs as the guessing game begins all over again.

Joel Dommett hosts the only show that can claim to have moved viewers to tears with a dragon’s emotional rendition of Adele’s Make You Feel My Love, and to have blown away audiences with a leather-clad biking Badger’s performance of Wrecking Ball.

The Masked Singer is produced by Bandicoot Scotland (part of Argonon Group) for ITV and the executive producers are Derek McLean, Daniel Nettleton and Claire Horton. Viewers can also catch up on both series of The Masked Singer on BritBox.

The Black Death: Lucy Worsley Investigates | BBC Two 31 May 2022

The Black Death: Lucy Worsley Investigates | BBC Two 31
Series 1 Episode 2

For centuries it was uncertain what caused the pestilence of 1348, until a vast plague pit was uncovered in Smithfield, London in the 1980s. The find revealed the bones of hundreds of victims of the 14th century pandemic.

Now stored in the basement of the Museum of London, Lucy learns how DNA extracted from the skeletons enabled scientists to finally identify a bacteria called Yersinia Pestis – a pathogen to which the mediaeval population had no immunity.

In little more than a year, almost half the population had been wiped out by the Black Death. Lucy investigates what this sudden loss of life meant for the church, landowners and for the those who survived.

Exploring the social structure of mediaeval England, made up largely of rural peasants indentured to landowners, Lucy discovers a rare and remarkable set of documents: the Court Rolls of the Suffolk village of Walsham the Willows, providing a perfect microcosm of life across the country before, during and after the pandemic.

Lucy discovers how, despite the unfolding apocalypse, rather than shaking people’s belief in God, it entrenched their faith. Many went on devotional pilgrimages to sacred sites like Canterbury Cathedral.

Despite the devastation, the plague propagated a shake-up of the status quo. Workers were in short supply and could demand higher wages, shifting the balance of power. Women occupied professions and roles that were previously closed to them and acquired an independence and status that would previously have been impossible.
