It comes as The Masked Singer US host Nick Cannon enjoyed a stint as a contestant on the show, competing as a Wildcard contestant.

Sharing that he’d be interested in doing the same, Joel shared: “I’d love to do that. Yeah!

“It’s a great idea. We’re always looking for new twists.”

He continued to tell RadioTimes.com: “To be honest, I think I wouldn’t like to give someone the chance to host the show because they would enjoy it too much and want to take over.”

Sharing his thoughts on another person taking over his hosting duties, the star added: “That would be the huge insecurity of mine that someone would take over just for a bit while I could be in the mask.

“And then everyone would be like, ‘To be honest, that person is actually better, let’s get that person instead.’ I’d be out of a job. But yeah, I’d love to do that.”

On ITV alone, the next four weeks will see Joel front The Masked Dancer and the National Television Awards and he will also feature in the new series of ancestry programme DNA Journey.

Joel has finally reached the point when he is saying no to work after even Mrs Dommett — otherwise known as model Hannah Cooper — said she was fed up with seeing him on screen.

He told The Sun: “Hannah says it all the time. She sees me as a person and then she gets home and I’m not there, and she sees me on the TV as well.

“There’s no way I would get too big for my boots because I have a wife who constantly keeps me in check.

“The thing is, I love making television. I love the process, the people, making friends, and when you get paid to do that it’s difficult to say no.

“I also work a lot because I have always felt like it was going to end. But The Masked Singer and The Masked Dancer have given me a bit of a comfort blanket in terms of feeling I’ve got a few years of security.”
