Davina McCall's divides Masked Singer fans with new look as she returns to judge

Davina McCall had a dramatic new hairstyle as she returned to The Masked Singer last night - and it completely divided fans.

The 55-year-old presenter debuted a severe fringe as she returned to the celebrity judging panel alongside Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan.

Replacing her signature long bob and middle parting with a blunt fringe, Davina's look was the talk of viewers that tuned in to see this year's disguised contestants.

Some fans said she looked like she'd cut her fringe "with a knife and fork" while others compared her look to Courteney Cox's appearance in 1997 horror Scream 2 and Strictly host Claudia Winkleman.

"Davina McCall may be a queen, but not even she can get away with cutting in a fringe with a knife and fork…" one viewer tweeted.

"Davina giving Scream 2 vibes," another added.

A third wrote: "Why does davina mccall look like a claudia winkleman version of the emoji."

But others were "sickened" by the negative comments about Davina's appearance and rushed to defend her.

"I'm an absolutely sickened by the stupid comments people have made this evening about Davina's appearance," one fan wrote.

"She is absolutely stunning. Extremely fit and healthy and a lovely person. Keep your nasty, pointless comments to yourselves!"

Another wrote: "Love scrolling through Twitter seeing everyone’s guesses - but staggered tonight to see so many negative comments about Davina’s appearance - has everyone forgotten #bekind."

A third added: "Is Davina McCall aging backwards?"

It was later revealed that Davina's boyfriend Michael Douglas masterminded the new look.

Taking to Instagram, Michael revealed how he chopped the hair - which is actually a wig - to get the perfect blunt fringe for his TV star girlfriend.

"Ep 1 of @maskedsingeruk @itv with @davinamccall and a wig from @pakcosmetics simple to do this one. The wig is about £120 it’s real hair so we can used it again and restyle it for future jobs," explained the stylist.

Meanwhile, on last night's show, six stars competed to avoid being the first celebrity to be eliminated from the programme. The first six stars to perform were Knitting, Otter, the show's first duo Cat and Mouse, Phoenix, Jellyfish and Ghost.

Ghost was unmasked as Chris Kamara in the first elimination, ahead of the six other celebrities performing for the first time next weekend in a bid to keep their mask firmly on. Phoenix was one of the people to perform and now fans of the ITV guessing game show are sure they've worked out who might be under the costume.

In their clue package, Phoenix said they were hot and had risen from the ashes. Singing Get Lucky by Daft Punk, Phoenix also revealed they were used to reincarnation, prompting some fans to think they might be a former Doctor.

Their riddle, "I'm all flame and fire, my feathers ablaze, it may intrigue you to learn, I've been a catchphrase," left the judges confused rather than with more ideas on who they might be.
