Dave Hughes reveals who wanted to replace Lindsay Lohan on The Masked Singer

Last month, Lindsay Lohan was forced to step down from The Masked Singer judging panel due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

And on Monday, her co-star Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes revealed his Hit radio co-host Ed Kavalee, 41, wanted Lindsay’s job as a judge on the singing show.

‘He did [want the job] and I quickly swatted it down. I said “you’ve got enough screen time mate, just back off”,’ Dave told News.com.au.

‘There were certainly mates left, right and centre trying to muscle in. Everyone wants to be on the show. It’s THE show to be on,’ he added.

Last month, Lindsay was forced to quit The Masked Singer Australia due to border closures.

New Zealand comedian Urzila Carlson has since been confirmed as her replacement.

The 44-year-old completed her mandatory two-week isolation in Sydney on June 30, before she flew to Melbourne to begin filming.

On Tuesday, the network released its latest trailer for the zany show, in which judge Dave Hughes jokes about the benefits of the pandemic.

‘Everyone is stuck here in this country so it’s more likely to be big stars this year!’ the 49-year-old funnyman says.

The line-up of costumed performers is rumoured to include Dami Im, Tommy Little, Madeleine West and Shane Warne. 

Last year’s season was a surprise ratings hit for Channel 10, and the network will no doubt be hoping for similar success this year.

The Masked Singer premieres Monday, August 10 at 7:30pm on Channel 10
