The Masked Singer's Davina McCall drops out of Changing Rooms reboot

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is still on board.

Channel 4's Changing Rooms revival has lost co-host Davina McCall due to scheduling difficulties.

The former Big Brother host, who currently serves as a panellist on ITV hit The Masked Singer, was announced for the reboot back in October 2020.

However, The Sun reports that the "changing production schedule" due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions have meant that Davina has had to pull out.

The presenter's reps have confirmed the news to Metro.co.uk.

As it stands, interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is still attached to the reboot.

Commenting on his role last year, he said: "There’s no room for beige in our homes and, just as it was in the 90s, Changing Rooms is once more the homestyle antidote to Britain's blues (and greys and taupes, and even Magnolia).

"It's taken quite a lot of coaxing to get me under the Changing Rooms banner once more, but nothing like as much coaxing as it's going to take to squeeze those leather trousers back on."

Changing Rooms aired on the BBC between 1996 and 2004, and was originally hosted by Carol Smillie.

It saw two sets of homeowners from the same area working against the clock to renovate a room in each other's house – for better or for worse.

Any TV presenters out there fancy a new gig?

The new series of Changing Rooms will air on Channel 4.
