Nick Cannon has tested positive for coronavirus forcing the entertainer to sit out the first few episodes of The Masked Singer latest season. According to the Daily Mail, Cannon received his positive result just days after production for the show is scheduled to begin.

He will be temporarily replaced by Niecy Nash, who’s been tapped to take over his hosting duties on the highly-rated Fox competition series, which is scheduled to return in March.

The 40-year-old is currently resting at home in quarantine, and Fox expects him to return to the show later in the season.
