Chatting to the Herald Sun, Dannii confessed that her “fashion commitments” in the UK clash with The Masked Singer 2022 filming dates.

“Unfortunately I won’t be returning,” she said. “I’ve loved every minute working on TMS and will miss my Inspector Minogue role”.

While Dannii will be working in her fashion role with QVC UK, she teased that “with borders opening there will be loads of great surprises” in the upcoming Masked Singer series.

The series will follow 10 single, gay men looking for love and holy sh*t, this is going to be AWESOME!

“Having the opportunity to be a part of this show is giving me that flutter-of-love feeling inside,” Dannii penned online. “I’m so thrilled that a gay dating show is joining the TV love-search mix.”

Signing off as the “happy assistant to Cupid”, Dannii said any single men looking for “Mr Right” can get in touch via the link in her Instagram Highlights.

Dannii Minogue Is the Second Judge to Leave The Masked Singer Australia

Dannii is the second judge from The Masked Singer Australia to announce they won’t be returning this year.

During a recent interview with Jackie and Kyle Sandilands on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Urzila Carlson 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?”
