On Friday, Today viewers were treated to a different format to normal as Hoda, 58, explained it was a "split edition" with her in the New York studio and Savannah, 51, in the UK.They initially gave the headlines on a split screen before Keir was introduced.

The English journalist, 51, has been the senior international correspondent for the NBC morning show since December 2018.In addition, he regularly appears on the evening broadcast NBC Nightly News, and fills in as an anchor on MSNBC too.

The star shared a photo of herself and Deborah flying in the air, looking delighted as they celebrated Deborah and her husband Al Roker's induction to the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame on their way to the UK. 

In the caption, Savannah wrote: "Celebrating from 30,000 feet on our way to London!

Hoda only recently returned from New Orleans where she has been on assignment. She's happy for her friend and colleague and addressed her trip on Tuesday's show. 

"Just days away from the long-awaited coronation of King Charles and I know someone who's heading to London. Savannah Guthrie are you packing your bags?" said Hoda, turning to her co-host. "I'm packing my bags, do you want to come with me?" 

Savannah asked Hoda and fellow Today star Craig Melvin. "It's going to be fun," she said. Quizzed by Craig on what she's most excited to do while in London, Savannah said: "I like to go to a pub when I'm there. You put me on the spot and that's the truth," prompting laughter from her co-hosts. "I like to have a burger and a pint. That's the truth."

True to her word, Savannah has been posting photos of herself at the pub on Instagram. She's reveling in the British cuisine and documented her delicious-looking feast of fish and chips and a pint too. 

While Savannah is looking forward to her trip to London, she will no doubt miss her children, too. The star shares two children, Vale, eight, and Charles, six, with husband Michael Feldman.
