Abbie's announcement sparked excitement among fans who were anxiously awaiting an update on the new season.
Up until mid-August, the official The Masked Singer Australia Instagram and Facebook pages had not been active since September 2022 (not including any Logies-related content).
In June 2023, 2022 judge Chrissie Swan also shared a sneak peek of filming for the 2023 season - revealing that the entirety of the core four have returned!
That's right... Abbie Chatfield, Chrissie Swan, Mel B, and David Hughes will return to the judging panel of The Masked Singer Australia 2023.
Accompanying her behind-the-scenes post, Chrissie wrote: "It’s back… and it’s SO GOOD! Hit the link in my bio for free tickets to this bonkers extravaganza aka The Masked Singer. We give you snacks too 🤗 (and the gang’s all back!"
Earlier this year, the Aussie media personality confirmed her own return with her followers on Instagram (just a day before her friend Abbie).
"Absolutely thrilled to announce (officially and with the consent of Ten - not just an off-the-cuff comment I made a few months ago to a journo) that The Masked Singer is indeed returning to your screens."
"I wonder what bonkers stuff will happen this season? I wonder who I will fall in love with?" Chrissie then joked.
"This show is pure magic, I love being amongst it...and I hope you will too. See you soon for more guesses, tears, and hijinx."
