When Karl Stefanovic seemingly vanished from the set of his Today hosting gig last week – right in the middle of a show – viewers wondered where he'd got to.
Now it appears he bailed out early to go on holiday, with the father of three reportedly jetting off to Bora Bora to join girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough.
The pair are believed to be staying on Karl's mate James Packer's superyacht, the Artic P.
The sudden disappearing act comes just one week before school holidays kick off – and Karl will have custody of his children.
"It was a surprise he decided to take this week off when he will have the children the very next week during school holidays," a family friend told Fairfax Media.
It seems they will not have their dad on holiday with with, however, as a spokesperson said Karl would be back on-air once school breaks up.
"Karl is on leave for the next few days... He will be back on air at the end of next week," a Nine spokesperson told Fairfax.
