The Masked Singer has been rocked by a ‘leak’ scandal after the show’s biggest star was spotted in public before filming, according to a bombshell report. 

This season’s biggest celebrity was spotted by hotel quarantine staff after jetting in from America, leading to fears their identity could soon be exposed.

The star had flown into Sydney well before filming started so that hotel staff wouldn’t suspect they were there for The Masked Singer, reports New Idea.

But their plans went awry after quarantine staff noticed the unusually high level of secrecy surrounding the celebrity’s arrival and put two and two together. 

‘The crew went to such great lengths to get them in unnoticed, before it all fell over in a hotel lobby,’ an insider claimed.

The arrival of international celebrities during Australia’s Delta outbreak has been a source of controversy for The Masked Singer.

Many fans were frustrated by the idea of allowing overseas stars a spot in hotel quarantine, given that strict caps were imposed on everyday citizens abroad who wanted to return Down Under.  

Responding to the backlash in August, Ten released a statement explaining that its international celebrities weren’t stealing the opportunity to return home from Australians. 

‘The Masked Singer Australia includes some international celebrities as part of the cast, who are set to be unmasked when the series airs next month,’ the statement began.

It went on to explain that the celebrities were in the country under regulations which existed outside of the flight cap on international arrivals.  

‘Their time in Australia was permitted under the government rules and regulations for international artists arriving in Australia, and these arrangements exist outside of the flight cap on international arrivals.’

The statement confirmed the celebrities would not take the place of Australian citizens trying to get home.
