UPDATE: As of October 21, Kelly Ripa is no longer hosting alone—read the latest update here.
This week’s episodes of Live with Kelly and Ryan might look a tad different than usual, and here’s why.
Producers posted a behind-the-scenes video on the talk show’s official Instagram account, featuring Kelly Ripa explaining why she’s not accompanied by her co-host, Ryan Seacrest. Since production is following strict social distancing protocol, it seems he won’t be able to return until he can produce a negative COVID-19 test result. (Did he test positive at some point? Perhaps he got a little too rowdy over the weekend?)
