The Masked Singer Australia Judge Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes has opened the lid on Dannii Minogue’s departure from the franchise.

He also said she was busy with her fashion label.
“Dannii revealed that she was leaving the Masked Singer due to scheduling conflicts and her fashion label and her dating show that she does in England,” said Hughesy.
The projects will require her to be in Europe in the coming months, which precludes filming The Masked Singer in Australia.
The celebrity gambling game will be overhauled in 2022, with Dannii, the second judge announcing their departure from the show.

Comedian Urzila Carlson confirmed on The Kyle and Jackie O Show last week that she won’t be back this year because she’s too busy with her comedy tour.

In the eight-part series, the contestants are matched by their strongest match, but “everyone is a potential love interest,” so things can change quickly.
Dannii said: ‘There are millions of people in the UK looking for love.
“And I believe that love is for everyone. So I’m so happy that a gay dating show is joining the sea of other dating shows that have been on TV for years.”

“So this also gives me that feeling of love inside, just to be a part of it. Let’s hope there’s love sealed with a kiss!’
Dannii also shared a casting call on Twitter, adding: “Having the chance to be a part of this show gives me that feeling of love.
