The masked singer Australia has been rocked by a coronavirus outbreak.
Seven dancers have reportedly tested positive for coronavirus and the show’s stars – including judges Dannii Minogue and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson – have been ordered to self-isolate immediately.
Host Osher Günsberg is also self-isolating, as is the show’s production team.
The COVID-19 bomb came on the night of the show’s grand finale.
The show’s setting is in Melbourne, which is at the center of Australia’s second wave of coronavirus.

A dancer came to the set sick on Friday and the producers told the producers to go home, the Sunday Herald Sun reported.
Six other dancers who were in close contact were also said to have tested positive.
Without a studio audience this season due to the coronavirus, the show instead used dancers to perform in the foreground as the stars perform.
The Docklands studio was also due to be used by Channel Nine this week.
