EXCLUSIVE | LINDSAY LOHAN OUT OF THE MASKED SINGER AUSTRALIA FOR 2021

She was the headline-grabbing judge when the series launched in 2019 but now the actress reveals why she won’t be joining the Channel 10 show in 2021

Lindsay Lohan has confirmed to TV Blackbox that she will not be taking part in series 3 of The Masked Singer, which is set to begin filming in early July.

The loss of Lohan for series two led to a sharp decline in viewers. with the premiere episode down 37% from 1.2 million in 2019 to 733,000 in 2020. In overnight figures the season average in the 5 cap cities was 928k in 2019 compared to 816k in 2020 (that’s a drop of 12% year on year).

Speaking to TV Blackbox contributor Abbey Mikkelsen, Lindsay has blamed the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions for her absence from the upcoming series, saying:

[blockquote]“We couldn’t do it again due to COVID still! But I’m sure they will have a nice season!”[/blockquote]

Anyone entering Australia currently has to isolate for 14 days in hotel quarantine but other international stars taking part in local reality TV shows have gone through that process.

It is not clear whether Lindsay chose not to undergo quarantine or if 10 was not willing to foot the bill. 

Late last year Lindsay told us she would be returning for series 3, saying:

“I will be back in Australia for season 3”

Now that she is not returning, Lindsay indicated she could still return to the series at a future date saying:

“Maybe next year!”

Lohan is set to start production on a Netflix Christmas special in November, which will be available in 2022. Her involvement in that production would not have affected her involvement with this season of The Masked Singer.

Speculation is rife about which stars are taking part in the series, with TV Blackbox readers believing they uncovered an international celebrity who is currently in quarantine.

‘The Masked Singer’ is returning to Ten without Lindsay Lohan

Ten has confirmed that hit music television show The Masked Singer will return for a second season in 2020.

The show, which originally emerged in Korea and has since been sold to markets all over the globe, will once again see masked celebrities sing in costume as audiences and judges try to guess their identities.

12 new celebrities will take to the stage this year, vying to take home the ultimate crown after Cody Simpson won series one.

Kate Ceberano, Deni Hines, Rob Mills, Adam Brand, Gretel Killeen, Brett Lee, Darren McMullen and Nikki Webster all competed last year.

“The most over-the-top costume party will see our new masks bravely step into the spotlight for season two of the runaway hit sensation that had viewers across Australia screaming “take it off!” said Ten in a press release.

Judges Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, Dave Hughes and Danni Minogue will all be back in 2020 as well.

American actor and singer Lindsay Lohan was originally scheduled to return for the second series of the show, but has been forced to pull out as she can’t travel from her base in Dubai due to coronavirus restrictions.

Ten confirmed to the Daily Telegraph that a new panellist will be announced shortly. “While we are disappointed that Lindsay can’t join us, we are lucky enough to have a sensational new panellist on the desk for this season. They will join Jackie O, Dannii Minogue and Dave Hughes, along with 12 new celebrities and 12 new masks.

“We can hear you yelling; “take it off” from here, but we will unmask our new panellist very soon. Stay tuned!”

Ten has revealed that this year’s costumes will include The Dragonfly, The Hammerhead, The Kitten, The Wizard, The Frillneck, The Sloth, The Cactus, The Goldfish, The Bushranger, The Queen, The Puppet and The Echidna.

Last year’s season finale peaked at 1.37 million viewers, and Ten will be hoping that a second season can replicate those numbers on a consistent basis.

Lindsay Lohan ‘will be REPLACED’ on The Masked Singer Season Two

Lindsay Lohan will not be returning for season two of The Masked Singer Australia, according to a report by New Idea.

Channel 10 is supposedly ‘replacing’ her as a celebrity judge on the show due to her ‘tricky demands’ behind the scenes.

‘[Lindsay] was tricky with demands and had a complete lack of respect for time schedules,’ said an unnamed TV insider.

Lindsay, 33, will apparently be replaced on the panel by Australian singer Kate Ceberano, who is rumoured to be The Lion on this year’s season.

Channel 10 is yet to confirm a second season of The Masked Singer and has not made any statement about the judging panel.

Speaking on the Kyle and Jackie O Show last week, Lindsay denied reports she was a ‘diva’ on set and said people were just digging for ‘negativity’.

‘People want to find the negative for no reason. There was nothing negative about [filming The Masked Singer],’ she said.

Radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, who is also a judge on The Masked Singer, added that production was ‘the best experience’ and ‘so much fun’.

However, former Masked Singer contestant Wendell Sailor has stated publicly that Lindsay’s long breaks disrupted production. ‘About a minute before I had to perform, they said, “Lindsay’s hungry, she’s going to have a break.” It was like an hour break! We were there for a while,’ Wendell said on KIIS FM last week.

The retired rugby player, 45, explained he was forced to wait in his dressing room during Lindsay’s break because he wasn’t allowed to talk to anyone on set.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 and Lindsay for comment.

Is Lindsay Lohan going into the jungle?

She’s set to appear on The Masked Singer.

And on Monday, there was speculation Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan could also appear on the Australian version of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

According to a report in Woman’s Day magazine, the 33-year-old is rumoured to have made a ‘two-part deal’ with Channel Ten.

‘[The deal] is where she appears on the panel of The Masked Singer and stars in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!,’ the report states.

The new season of IAC will be screened early next year.

Despite the The Masked Singer Australia not even hitting screens yet, it has already been embroiled in a number of controversies with its biggest star.

According to a report by The Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday, Lindsay’s turbulent behaviour has been dealt with on-set.

‘She loves you one minute and the next she will fire you,’ an alleged insider from the star’s ‘tight circle’ told the publication.

The alleged production insider claimed that dealing with Lindsay’s behaviour ‘is part of the job’.

‘Of course she doesn’t mean it, she likes to throw tantrums but it’s part of the job when you work with Lindsay,’ the alleged ‘source’ reportedly told the paper.

It comes after it was alleged that Lindsay has been embroiled in feuds with her Masked Singer co-stars Dannii Minogue and Dave Hughes.

The show has been plagued by rumours of Lindsay’s ‘diva behaviour’ on set ever since co-judge David Hughesy joked about it last month.

The Masked Singer airs on Channel 10 later this year.
