The Masked Singer judge Jackie O Henderson is looking at a further three-and-a-half weeks in quarantine since the reality show shut down due to a cluster of coronavirus cases broke out during filming. Yesterday, Network 10 confirmed the number of infections linked to the program has grown to 16.
“It’s f***ed. just want to see my baby girl (Kitty), far out,” she told listeners of the hit KIIS FM breakfast show. She’s said said she has no issues with the quarantine itself but questions why she needed to do it twice.
The reality show judge/radio host was reportedly scheduled to fly home to Sydney earlier this week but was informed to quarantine in Melbourne. Fellow judges Dave Hughes, Urzila Carlson and Dannii Minogue, and 285 production staff are also in quarantine due to the outbreak.
A recent statement revealed: “All members of The Masked Singer production will undergo a 14-day period of self-quarantine as advised by the Department of Health and Human Services. All production crew will be adhering to this instruction. The health and safety of the community, and our staff and production partners remains our number one priority. Network 10 is providing all crew with all the support and assistance possible. We would like to thank the Victorian Government and the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services for their continued support and assistance during this time. We continue to work closely with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.”
Production initially learnt hours before the filming of the grand finale episode last Saturday that seven coronavirus cases involving crew and action was taken immediately.
