The Masked Singer: Dannii Minogue gasps as celebrity's prop head falls off

It’s one of the weirdest and wackiest shows on TV and it seems this year’s season of The Masked Singer won’t disappoint fans.

A new trailer for the show, which is coming soon to Channel 10, shows a range of celebrities dressed in an array of bizarre costumes, from a baby to a kebab and a piñata.

However, a close call happens at one stage in the upcoming series, after a celebrity’s prop head falls off while they’re standing onstage.

Wearing what appears to be a fish costume, with a mullet and plaid shirt, the celebrity manages to pull their head into the costume in lightning time, with none of the judges catching a glimpse of anything.

“I did not see a head at all you turned into a tortoise real quick,” Dave Hughes says, with Dannii Minogue, Urzila Carlson and Jackie O all agreeing with him.

The new trailer comes after the first look at the show left people saying the costumes were ‘terrifying’.

It featured the celebrities all singing the song That’s Not My Name by The Ting Tings.

The costumes include an enormous Baby, a fish with a very dated hairstyle appropriately named Mullet, a smiling Kebab, a rainbow Piñata, a very high fashion Atlantis and a gothic Vampire.

“These costumes are low-key scary,” one person wrote online, with another adding, “This is terrifying but I wanna watch it”.

Others applauded the creativity and hard work that has gone into the new season’s characters, adding that the wardrobe department “have outdone themselves”.

“The costumes are amazing and original ideas! Can't wait for the show to begin,” a fan commented.

“Can we just take a moment to notice how incredible the masks are so far this year?” another remarked.

Meanwhile, fans have already started to make their guesses for who’s behind the costumes known online, with celebs such as former Home and Away star Tammin Sursok, former Bachelor contestant Abbie Chatfield and radio DJ Michael 'Wippa' Wipfli all being thrown into the mix.
