And on Monday, the program's three main anchors, George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan, were all missing from the show.

This is because it was a national holiday - July 4 - and so instead they were subbed by Janai Norman, Whit Johnson and Eva Pilgrim.

While Robin and Michael have so far kept a low profile during their time off work, George is believed to still be on vacation in Montauk with his wife Ali Wentworth.

The Go Ask Ali podcast star took to social media last week to reveal that she was on vacation and presumably had her husband by her side taking candid shots while there.

GMA is an incredibly popular morning news show

The popular journalist rarely ever leaves his position on GMA for non-work related reasons, so it was refreshing for fans to see him take a break to spend time with loved ones. He recently also got the chance to take off even further, taking a trip with his wife to Paris for a few days and seeing the sights.
