awkward reunion between deb knight and karl stefanovic as they co host nines today show

Deborah Knight returned to co-host the Today show on Monday, nine months after leaving the program.

The 47-year-old journalist was filling in for Allison Langdon alongside Karl Stefanovic, with whom she reportedly has a strained relationship.

As viewers tuned in just after 5:30am, Deborah didn’t directly mention the fact she used to be Today’s full-time anchor, but did joke that she was ‘getting a refresher’.

Karl was sacked from Today while on his honeymoon in December 2018. Deborah was subsequently announced as his replacement, alongside Georgie Gardner.

But in November 2019, Channel Nine announced that both female anchors were being axed due to low ratings, and Karl was being reinstated alongside Allison.  

‘Nice to see you again,’ Karl told Deborah at the start of Monday’s show, adding: ‘Ally is on a well-deserved week holiday. Deb is in for the week.’

Their friendly on-air exchange comes almost two years after Karl was accused of comparing Deborah to a horror film character in January 2019.

KIIS FM host Kyle Sandilands claimed on air at the time that Karl had sent him a photo of Freddy Krueger via text message after he’d invited him to join Deborah and Georgie for an in-studio interview.

Freddy is the antagonist from the Nightmare on Elm Street series of horror films.

But Karl told Daily Mail Australia at the time that Kyle had totally misrepresented their SMS exchange, and insisted he had not been referring to Deborah and Georgie when he sent the photo of Freddy Krueger. 

‘Kyle and I were talking about a former Russian president, not the Today show cast,’ Karl said. 

‘He has a fertile, funny and disturbing imagination. I don’t know how Jackie [Henderson, Kyle’s radio co-host] puts up with him. 

‘For the record, I wake up with Today, not KIIS. And Kyle can KIIS my a**.’

While his statement was lighthearted, Daily Mail Australia understood that behind the scenes Karl was furious with Kyle for sharing their private texts on air.

Setting the record straight: At the time, both Karl and Kyle (pictured with Jackie O) claimed their SMS exchange had been misrepresented. They insisted Karl had directed the Freddy Krueger image at Kyle to show how 'evil' he was, and was not referencing Deborah and Georgie

Kyle also acknowledged that his exchange with Karl had simply been misunderstood.

He told Daily Mail Australia at the time that Karl had sent him the picture of Freddy Krueger, but said that the image referred to him, not Georgie and Deborah. 

‘Karl sent back the picture of Freddy Krueger which was his way of laughing off the suggestion and insinuating I was evil for inviting him on the show with his Today host replacements,’ he said.

‘That picture of Freddy Krueger was directed at me, not the girls. It was all meant in good fun.’

Georgie has since returned to presenting Nine News Sydney, while Deborah fills in on A Current Affair and has her own afternoon radio show on 2GB.

Speaking on FUBAR Radio, she revealed she’s in no rush to jump into a new relationship.

She explained: ‘I’m a good believer in everything happens for a reason and I’m just rolling with it.’ 

The former couple’s whirlwind romance began in August 2019 when they met during the filming of Ex on the Beach: Peak Of Love, with the pair becoming engaged just a month later.

When asked if she’s had many guys sliding into her DMs, Georgia said: ‘I just want some time now to just focus on myself and I’m not really wanting to rush into anything. I’m just wanting to take every day as it comes!’

susanna reid reveals that the coronavirus pandemic left her screaming and crying

Susanna Reid has disclosed that the coronavirus pandemic gave her crippling nightmares where she would wake up ‘screaming and crying’. 

The Good Morning Britain host, 49, discussed her anxiety struggles which surfaced at the start of the pandemic in March, and how she has found the whole experience ‘very frightening’.    

During an interview with The Telegraphs’ Stella Magazine, Susanna explained: ‘It was an anxious time for everybody, but those early days were very frightening.

‘I started to have really vivid, terrifying nightmares where I would wake up screaming and crying even though I couldn’t quite remember what the nightmares were.’

The GMB presenter- who hosts the ITV show alongside Piers Morgan- felt her fears reached new heights after learning that her co-star, Kate Garraway’s husband was sent to intensive care after contracting the virus.   

Derek was rushed to hospital in March and was placed into an medically-induced coma to aid his recovery.

He is now out of his coma, but remains in hospital and has dropped a whopping eight stone over the past six months due to his illness.

The former lobbyist is unable to speak, so Susanna has taken it upon herself to support her colleague throughout the challenging period. 

She has been doing what she can to assist Kate, 53, and her children, Billy, 11, and Darcy, 14, as they return to school. 

After her husband was hospitalised, Kate decided to take some time off to support her family, but she announced her return to Smooth Radio earlier this month so Derek ‘can hear my voice as well as many of the songs we both love,’.

In a moving interview in Saturday’s You magazine, the mother-of-two said: ‘We hope and believe he will come out of it but we just don’t know. 

‘The heart of the family has been ripped out and we don’t know if we will ever get it back.’
