Not One, But Two Former ‘Live’ Co-Hosts Are Joining Kelly Ripa & Ryan Seacrest Today

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest were joined by not one, but two former guest co-hosts on today’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan.

This morning, producers shared their daily behind-the-scenes content on the show’s official Instagram account. They kicked things off by posting a photo of the three guests that will appear on the Valentine’s Day episode: George Stephanopoulos, Ali Wentworth and Mark Consuelos.

If Wentworth looks familiar, it’s probably because she has filled in for Ripa on multiple occasions, like back in November 2021 when she co-hosted an episode of Live alongside Seacrest. The same goes for Ripa’s husband, Consuelos, who has made several appearances on the talk show.

Producers followed up with a sneak peek of the Live set (screenshot below), which received a makeover for the Valentine’s Day installment. Instead of the typical desk-and-chairs setup, there’s a large lip-shaped couch in the middle of the stage that’s surrounded by all-pink everything.

During the episode, Ripa wore a fitting outfit, featuring a pink long sleeve blouse with a tie around the neck. She paired it with a matching pleated skirt and stilettos (natch). On the other hand, Seacrest opted for a classic suit with a light pink button-down shirt.

This is a tough act to beat.
