Rita Ora dropped for The Masked Dancer as Oti Mabuse takes her place on the panelMarch 4, 2021
RITA Ora will not appear alongside her Masked Singer co-stars when the show returns as The Masked Dancer.
The 30-year-old will be replaced on the judging panel by Strictly Come Dancing's Oti Mabuse.
ITV confirmed the show will air this spring with Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall all appearing as judges.
Masked Singer host Joel Dommett is also coming back as host for the dancing version of TV's weirdest show.
Rita is thought to be unable to return to the popular format because she is filming in Australia, where she is a judge on The Voice.
Oti said: "I’m so thrilled and honoured to be joining the panel on The Masked Dancer.
"I’m a huge fan of The Masked Singer and I loved the US Masked Dancer so I just can’t wait to start on this show.
"As a dancer I will be watching the dancers intently looking for clues – it’s going to be so much fun!!!"
