The Masked Singer Australia has quickly become a firm staple in the reality TV line-up, however, in 2022, the series is set for a huge shake-up.

While hosts Jackie O Henderson, Dave “Hughesy” Hughes and Dannii Minogue will all be returning to the judging panel for the fourth season, comedian Urzila Carlson will not be joining them.

During a recent interview with Jackie and Kyle Sandilands on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Urzila, 46, revealed that she wouldn’t be returning due to her comedy tour.

After Kyle questioned his co-star and Urzila when they anticipated filming of The Masked Singer Australia 2022 to start, Urzila said: “Do you want to get this one, Jackie? Because I’m not actually doing it this year…”

“Because I’m touring again,” she added. “The first year, I was just filling in for Lindsay [Lohan], and the second year we thought — well, Lindsay will be back, surely?”

Is Lindsay Lohan Returning to The Masked Singer Australia?

Early 00s star Lindsay surprised Australia when she took up a spot on the judging panel of the show’s first series, however, during the 2020 and 2021 seasons, was unable to participate due to the ongoing global pandemic.

So, now that travel restrictions have eased and Urzila will be leaving, does this mean our Mean Girls queen will be back for the fourth season?

“Is Lindsay coming back?” Kyle asked to which both Jackie and Urzila said they didn’t know. Oh.

Here’s hoping that Lindsay will be returning to our shores now that she can. However, given she now has a wedding to plan, we might be getting a local star instead.
