Lindsay Lohan was unable to return as a judge on The Masked Singer this year, due to travel restrictions enforced over COVID-19.
Instead, comedian Urzila Carlson joined the panel alongside Jackie O Henderson, Dave Hughes and Dannii Minogue.
But Lohan didn’t seem to take the replacement well, unfollowing all her fellow panel members on social media.
“Lindsay has reached out on WhatsApp to check in and see how everything is going. I think the reason why she has unfollowed – well she muted us actually – is because she doesn’t want to see The Masked Singer stuff because she really wanted to be part of it,” Jackie O said.
“So I don’t blame her in a way because you don’t want to be constantly reminded of the job you wanted but can’t do right now because of COVID.
“I’m assuming that’s why and not because there is any other reason.”
Carlson couldn’t help but agree, suggesting that Lohan could even return as a judge on the show next year.
“I reckon she will click follow back next year when she is back and hopefully COVID is gone,” she said during the chat.
When asked by Kyle if that means the comedian won’t be returning to the panel next year, Carlson joked that she’d probably be dragged onto the stage in a mermaid or unicorn costume instead.
It comes after production for The Masked Singer was forced to shut down one hour before filming the grand finale, due to a coronavirus outbreak which has affected 16 of its dancers .
A Network 10 spokesman told news.com.au: “Network 10 can confirm that 16 members of The Masked Singer production team have received a positive test result for COVID-19.
“All members of The Masked Singer production will undergo a 14-day period of self-quarantine as advised by the Department of Health and Human Services. All production crew will be adhering to this instruction.
“The health and safety of the community, and our staff and production partners remains our number one priority. Network 10 is providing all crew with all the support and assistance possible.
