“She gives Scream 2 vibes!” Davina McCall is accused of cutting off her dramatic new bangs ‘with a knife and fork’ as the presenter divides fans with the latest look on The Masked Singer
The Masked Singer returned with a subtle twist on Sunday night, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the wildly successful format of the frenzied show.
Reprising her role as a celebrity judge alongside Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall divided fans as she showed off a dramatic new hairstyle as the weird and wonderful ITV show’s fourth series kicked off.
Sporting severe bangs replacing her usual mid-parted look, the TV personality, 55, inevitably caught fans’ attention as she judged this year’s range of heavily disguised contestants.

Reacting to her new look, some drew harsh comparisons to Gale Weathers, the fictional newscaster played by Courteney Cox in Wes Craven’s wildly popular Scream franchise.
An amused viewer took to Twitter to share a photo of Cox in character as the precocious journalist, with the caption, “Davina giving Scream 2 vibes.”
While a second quipped, “Davina McCall may be a queen, but even she can’t get away with cutting a pony with a knife and fork…”

Davina recently admitted that two of this year’s 12 performers, all disguised in extravagant and outrageous costumes, managed to make her cry.
She said, ‘Absolutely – Jellyfish is an extraordinary performer and has made us all quite emotional.
Rhino has also been very emotional. There are people who pull you all the way in.’
She added that the celebrity playing Rhino is “huge and quite humble” and puts his “little hooves together” in a sweet move.
