Channel 10 has confirmed reality TV dating show The Bachelor and The Masked Singer will not be returning to screens in 2024.

Rumours about the shows’ potential cancellations came after radio host and comedian David Hughes revealed he was yet to receive a production schedule for The Masked Singer — for which he has been a panellist for all five seasons.

“We’ve been waiting on a production schedule. That production schedule has not come through, so as far as I know, The Masked Singer won’t be filmed this year for Channel 10,” Hughes said on radio show Hughesy, Ed and Erin.

“We’ve had such a great time over those years, it’s been such a fun show to be on, so many great singers have been on.

“It’s a tough one for the production team.”

The radio hosts then dialled in Osher Gunsberg — The Bachelor host — to discuss speculation about the future of The Bachelor.

“I tell you what, I haven’t cancelled our trip to Fiji, which is in the middle of the shooting window we normally have,” Gunsberg revealed.

Network 10 then confirmed the rumours in a statement to Mumbrella, saying the show is going on a hiatus.

“Network 10 will be packing away the masks and roses this year, confirming that The Masked Singer and The Bachelor franchises won’t appear in its program schedule,”

“They have both been helmed by the remarkable television presenter Osher Günsberg since their inception. This hiatus for The Masked Singer Australia and The Bachelor franchise will provide Osher with a moment to rest his vocal chords, which have been tirelessly urging contestants to reveal themselves, while also softly delivering the iconic line, ‘I’m sorry, but you did not receive a rose,’” the spokesperson continued.
