The Masked Singer Australia is set to return to screens on Sunday on Channel 10 with a new line up of celebrities hiding behind zany costumes.
And now the show’s vocal coach Gary Pinto has lifted the lid on the show’s worst warblers.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Pinto revealed that British actor and former footballer Vinnie Jones has been the worst singer to appear on the series.

‘Vinnie is a legend, but I’d be on the phone to him for hours trying to go through songs and ideas,’ Pinto said.
‘He’d ask me, “Can we do a sea shanty?” And I’d be, “Vinnie, we don’t do sea shanties!” He was so rough, he’s not a singer, but he doesn’t really care.’
Pinto also said chef George Calombaris worked hard to find his singing voice.

‘George is a hard worker, and a very sweet fella,’ Pinto said. ‘I did more time with him than most singers. He’d always go, “Come on, we need to rehearse more.” He put in more work than most of the singers.’
