‘Now, Ally has unfortunately had to go home. She’s got a very sizeable frog in her throat. She’ll be back on deck tomorrow. In the meantime it’s an empty seat,’ he said.

Brooke Boney then joked Karl ‘looked more relaxed’ hosting the breakfast show without her.

‘Look she does put me on the edge. I never know what’s going to come,’ he replied.

Langdon’s mid-show departure after David Koch disappeared from the news desk after just 25 minutes on air due to a health issue.

The TV presenter, 66, stepped away from the news desk during an ad break shortly before 6am because he was suffering from laryngitis.

He had been speaking with a croaky voice at the start of the broadcast at 5:30am.

His co-anchor Natalie Barr explained his absence to viewers at 5:56am, saying: ‘You may notice something slightly different.

‘Kochie came in [and] he bravely fought on for about 25 minutes. He had laryngitis yesterday and apparently he’s still got it. He couldn’t really speak.’

Newsreader Monique Wright said she had told Kochie to ‘have honey before every intro’ but he refused because he thought it might ‘bring on diabetes or something’.
