TV

Filming for The Masked Singer had to be delayed because of host Joel Dommett.

After he was hired by bosses, it emerged the first day of recording clashed with his wedding.

Joel said: “I was given the dates we’d be filming and the first episode was happening on the day I was getting married. I thought, ‘Oh no…of course this had to happen’.

“I genuinely thought I wasn’t going to be able to do it. But then the producers managed to move the date of the first recording.

“It was only a few days, but it was still amazing that they did it. Imagine how many people they had to move around to make it happen.

“It’s exciting to be doing such a big show. I’m proud of myself. I feel very lucky and privileged that they have slotted me in.”

The series, which launched last night, is already a global hit.
