Savannah Guthrie was left red-faced and full of regret when she suffered, what she called, "an epic fail" on the Today show. 

The popular TV host was over the moon for Dateline's Keith Morrison to record her voicemail for her, admitting it was something she'd always longed for.

"So I’m the biggest loser. Wanna know what he said? 'This is Savannah’s cell phone. Or is it? But if you really knew Savannah, you would just text… wouldn't you……'. Voicemail by Dateline legend - epic. Not recording it - epic fail."

But fans were mostly curious by what is behind the desk, with many remarking on the relatable coffee table next to Savannah's chair.

The unit had a much-needed coffee on top of it, along with various hand sanitizers and cleaning products.

"We all need a 'what's in the bag' episode of what's on that table!" one remarked, while another wrote: "I love all the necessities next to Savannah out of view from the camera!"

She's happy to be back in the studios but also missing all the special time she spent with her two children and husband over the holidays. 

Savannah bid farewell to her kids, Vale, seven, and Charles, four, as she photographed their first day back at school and shared the adorable image with her fans.
