BBC One, 9pm
The genealogy documentary series returns, with Jodie Whittaker (Doctor Who) tracing her Yorkshire family tree in this opening episode.
The documentaries will explore different aspects of the Black experience in modern Britain, including a look at romantic relationships, the celebration of black comedians, and an investigation into why Covid-19 cases are so prominent in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups.
"I am really excited about the range of programming for Black History Month this year, particularly because we are launching new onscreen talent we hope will become regular faces on Channel 4,” said Danny Horan, Head of Factual at Channel 4.
Gilligan will be joining Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Jonathan Ross in using their power of deduction to guess the face behind the voice, while host Joel Dommett also returns to preside over the proceedings.
Gilligan commented: "It’s a real privilege to be joining The Masked Singer team.
“It’s one of the funniest shows out there and I’m really proud to play my small part to help bring a little bit of joy to the nation.”

Reasons to be Cheerful with Matt Lucas
Having already cheered up millions with his viral Thank You Baked Potato video in support of Feed NHS, Matt Lucas is going to front this new comedy entertainment show written by Harry Hill.
The series will see the comedic minds of Lucas and Harry Hill combine to bring viewers brand new sketches, upbeat homemade skits and an opportunity to showcase members of the public and their pets alongside celebrities, all from their own homes.
“I was just taken aback that I had the opportunity to get my own [show],” he says of his Friday night chat show.
He made a name for himself last year as the co-host of The Big Narstie Show alongside the grime star. The pair won an RTS Programme Award and a Bafta nod for their entertainment performance.
