It's lucky ABC has so many talented hosts to stand-in as this week has seen a major shake-up on GMA.

On Wednesday, Robin Roberts announced it was her last show until after her upcoming wedding to Amber Laign, and the following day, she was absent, as was George Stephanopolous

Michael Strahan has been away from the show filming $100,000 Pyramid in Los Angeles, meaning the anchor seats at the tail end of the week have been occupied by Rebecca Jarvis and GMA3: What You Need to Know, Eva Pilgrim and DeMarco Morgan, instead.

The co-stars became the permanent new anchors alongside Dr. Jennifer Ashton earlier this year after Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes were fired from their positions after their relationship was made public.

While Eva, DeMarco and Rebecca looked right at home on the early morning show, the three main hosts' noticeable absence sparked a reaction on social media as fans queried when they would be reunited on-air. 

Of course, it's quite possible that the next time Robin, George and Michael reconnect will be at Robin's nuptials which are set to take place in September.

It's unlikely Michael will miss his good pals' big day, and although he has been busy on the west coast over the summer, he will do everything he can to jet to her side for the occasion.

When Michael received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in January, Robin attended the special moment in Los Angeles.

Following the ceremony, the friends and co-hosts jetted back to New York to their spots on their morning show, and Robin was quick to give Michael another moment to shine.

"We are so proud, our own Michael Strahan!" she announced at the top of the morning: "He is no stranger to making history and did so with this once in a lifetime achievement." 

The former NFL athlete's star marks the first to be dedicated to the Sports Entertainment category.

She continued: "You have achieved so much in your career, and can I say it was humbling to be there, and to see the mosaic of people that you brought together.

Robin is one of the longest-running stars on the show along with George. They both marked 13 years of their partnership at the end of 2022. Michael, meanwhile, joined the show in 2016.

It's clear their chemistry and friendships are solid and while talking to PA, Robin clarified: "We would never, ever do anything to make each other look good at the expense of the other."

That's such a comfort. To have that, it makes you take chances, and I think the audience picks up on that — the way that we are so different in many ways but so common in others."
