Yep, Channel 9 has asked our favourite brekky host to basically get his sh*t together. 

This year, the heartbreaking news broke that Karl Stefanovic was separating from wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn

Since then, we heard that Karl was living with his brother, Tom, but other than numerous dating rumours - everything seemed to be back to the daily grind for ol' Karl. Including work. 

However, a couple weeks ago, viewers' keen eyes noticed that the Today host was missing one day and now it has been revealed that Channel 9 has asked Karl to take a break over the summer. 

9 News boss Darren Wick told Newscorp

"Previously what we've done with Karl is that he has often shot 60 Minutes stories over the summer. 

"We don't want him doing that this year - just have a break. Obviously what he's working through with his family situation... he needs to have a break and just rest and spend time with his family. 

"He's going to do that and come back fresh next year." 

So, for those of you going into meltdown over your favourite host's whereabouts - we're pleased to let you know that he'll be back in his same chair, doing his same job in 2017!
