Urzila Carlson has been confirmed as joining The Masked Singer‘s panel, replacing Lindsay Lohan who was unable to return due to travel restrictions.
The NZ-based comedian joins Jackie O, Dave Hughes and Dannii Minogue for the hit series produced by Warner Bros. Australia.
Host Osher Günsberg said: “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Urzila into the bonkers world of The Masked Singer Australia. She is an absolute crack up, and will fit right in as the panel tries to guess who is who!”
Carlson said: “Being on The Masked Singer Australia is very exciting – it’s not something I thought I would ever do, but when I got the call to say ‘Lindsay can’t make it because of Cyrus The Virus, could you step in?’, I immediately said yes.
“I’m pumped to do the show, but I’m also upset that Lindsay can’t be the other panelist. But for anyone who is at home and angry, think about this – I have to wear her wardrobe because they’ve already spent the money, so they are just putting in a few clips for me. Spare a thought for me, and tune in just for that, and the amazing talent under the masks!”
Earlier this week Dannii Minogue drew headlines around her self-isolation in Queensland, but 10 has confirmed production is proceeding in Melbourne.
Airdates are yet to be announced.
