And while he is now safely there, his journey didn't get off to the best start, which no doubt left his doting wife Deborah Roberts worrying back home.

Al had revealed on social media on Sunday that he had been forced to separate from his travel companions, including co-star Craig Melvin, due to him getting more than one inconclusive Covid test result.
