Lindsay Lohan was forced to step down from the panel of The Masked Singer for the past two years due to international border restrictions.

But it looks like the American actress, 35, could be set to return to the Channel 10 show after her replacement Urzila Carlson announced she won’t be back this year.

Sources close to the Mean Girls star have told Daily Mail Australia that Lindsay ‘would absolutely love to return to Australia for the right opportunity and amount’. It comes after Urzila, 46, told The Kyle and Jackie O Show that she will not be returning this year because she’ll be too busy on her comedy tour.

After Kyle Sandilands asked when she and Jackie will film the new series, Urzila said: ‘Do you want to get this one, Jackie? Because I’m not actually doing it this year…’

‘What are you talking about? You’re not on the bench?’ a shocked Kyle responded.

‘I know. I’m so devastated,’ Jackie said.

Urzila explained: ‘Because I’m touring again… the first year, I was just filling in for Lindsay [Lohan], and the second year we thought – well, Lindsay will be back, surely?’

‘Is Lindsay coming back?’ Kyle asked, with both Urzila and Jackie saying they didn’t know.

‘But now, the third year… Covid is finished, so now I can just go travel and tour.’

Urzila had replaced Lohan as a judge in 2020, after the Hollywood star was unable to fly over to Melbourne to film due to the pandemic.

It’s not yet known who will take over from Urzila in the new season.

During the first season of The Masked Singer Australia in 2019, musician Cody Simpson won as ‘The Robot’.

In 2020, Bonnie Anderson took the crown as ‘The Bushranger’, while Anastacia won in the most recent season as ‘Vampire’.
