The Masked Dancer UK started yesterday evening (May 29th) – but it seems that not everyone watching at home loved it as much as the judges.
The ITV spin-off of the reality show The Masked Singer contained many elements similar to the original series.
The Masked Dancer was also hosted by Joel Dommett and consisted of Judges Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan.
Strictly Star Oti Mabuse, however, took the place of Masked Singer judge Rita Ora for this special series.
The Masked Dancer UK: “How should you guess?”
According to social media, the well-known format of the show delighted many viewers.
But many also seemed confused about how to find out the identity of the celebrities under the masks.
One person tweeted, “I loved The Masked Singer, but man The Masked Dancer is no good.”
When they replied to another Twitter user, they stated they couldn’t tell who is who – which may have to do with the fact that they are masked!
However, according to several social media users, this is also because they are unfamiliar with dancers.

“It’s so pointless!” they exclaimed. “You might as well just have a guessing game. Why do they dance? It’s so bad. “
Someone else tweeted: “I don’t know a lot of well-known dancers so I think that compared to The Masked Singer I will be making #MaskedDancer garbage. “
And a third person repeated: “How should you guess who the mask dancer is? Trying to guess The Masked Singer was bad enough, but at least you had a chance to recognize the voice. “
“You can’t dance!”
Some observers also felt that there was a real lack of “quality” when it came to the show – and the performances.
One person claimed: “Watching the masked dancer @ITV. Apart from the first dancer Zip, the others just walk around and wave their arms around.
“Thought it was a dance show? C.one hope that it will get better “
How should you guess who the mask dancer is?
Another, apparently feeling left out by some aspect of the show, added: “The mask dancer … What happened to high quality weekend programming aimed at ALL viewers? “
And a third person rated the entire viewing experience as follows: “Seeing The Masked Dancer isn’t as good as Masked Singer in my opinion. “
Masked Dancer UK: What the audience liked about it
However, not everyone immediately liked the show.
And that’s as good as having six episodes left. They are to be broadcast every night except Wednesday (June 2nd).
“Masked Dancer is a brilliant bonker on TV. Huge love [for it] in this house, ”said a fan.

Another happy viewer tweeted: “I didn’t think Masked Dancer would work, but I wouldn’t lie, I already love it! #MaskedDancerUK. ”
And someone else added, “The mask dancer is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I love it.”
Who was the first
Jordan Banjo became the first famous face to be exposed in the first episode on Saturday night.
He was disguised as a viper – but who is revealed under the masks of beetroot, scarecrow, car wash and the others?
The Masked Dancer UK continues tonight, Sunday 30th May, from 7.30pm on ITV.
