Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes were nowhere to be seen for an event on Friday which previously they wouldn't have missed for the world.

Their former GMA3 co-host, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, rang in her birthday and celebrated with her on-air "family" which used to be Amy and T.J. prior to their dismissal from the network

Instead, Jennifer was flanked by Eva Pilgrim and Gio Benitez, who presented her with a gorgeous golf-themed birthday cake.

They had all loved working together on the show and the trio previously opened up about their working relationship in Resident Magazine. "The three of us have been working and collaborating together on random segments for a while now," Jennifer said at the time.

"When Amy would anchor GMA, we had a joke between us – we would just always say we felt like we were in a tennis match or doing a dance, and that we wish we could do it all the time.

"I can't overstate the amount of respect and admiration I have for these guys and what they do on the air, especially when it comes to their range.

"It's like watching the G.O.A.T. of athletes everyday do their thing. I learn so much from them." Meanwhile, "trust and respect" are what they believed had led to the show's success.
