Mo Gilligan says he has been banned from speaking to anyone behind the scenes of The Masked Singer.
The comedian and Celebrity Gogglebox favourite has joined the panel of the hit ITV singing show for its second run, replacing The Masked Singer US star Ken Jeong.
Now, Mo has given some insight into just how secretive the series really is behind the scenes while speaking to Alison Hammond on the My Life In TV podcast.
Mo said: "You don’t see. You see that show, when you watch it on the show, the T shirts 'Don't talk to me' – that’s real. The set is huge. I got in the car, the driver was instructed he can’t talk to me. I cannot talk to you, I'm not allowed. There's a gate. There's another gate with huge security guards. This happened every single day."

He added: "You don't see anyone, you go straight into your dressing room, it's so secretive. It's a fun show, it's a really good family game."
The comedian also spoke about his ambitions to tackle a travel documentary series in the future.
"I'd love to do a travel programme," he revealed to Alison. "Once I started getting into the world of TV and comedy, and started earning a bit of money, I started travelling. I've got a lot of friends where I grew up, no one ever went on holiday when I was young."

Meanwhile, Spice Girls singer Mel B has revealed why she thinks the panel worked out that she was the Seahorse on last weekend's show.
The singer, full name Melanie Brown, told The Sun : "My bubble butt gave it away. And the way that I was moving gave it away too."

She added: "I mean, I move like how I move. So when the nerves hit, even though you’re not meant to move like yourself, you do."
