Channel 10 has hit back at reports Lindsay Lohan was to be axed from their runaway hit The Masked Singer, instead confirming she’s set to stay on for season two.
The move comes days rumours surrounding the former teen queen’s future began to swirl due her allegedly dramatic behaviour both on and offscreen.

But now, the network has put the chatter to rest, and ensured fans the entire celeb panel will be returning to their gig next season.
“Despite what you may have read, we will have exactly the same judging line-up and exactly the same host,” a network rep told news.com.au.
“We’re thrilled that they’re all coming back and you know how these things work, the more that people get familiar with each other and familiar with everything it just gets better and better because they get more comfortable. The potential upside for us next year is really exciting.”
Despite Channel 10’s loyalty to their lineup, earlier reports claimed the star’s lack of knowledge about local celebs made it difficult to understand who could be behind each mask.
“She is being replaced,” a TV insider allegedly told New Idea last week.
“Oh my God, I don’t believe it, it’s Gretel Killeen!” bellowed host Osher Gunsberg as the homegrown members of the panel cheered.
Lindsay, however, struggled to hide the fact that she clearly had never heard of the TV favourite before that very moment.
