Live with Kelly and Ryan viewers have been wondering where presenter Ryan Seacrest is as he has been missing from the morning show since last week.

The morning ABC programme has featured Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest as presenters since 2017 after Michael Strahan left.

But viewers are very confused why Ryan has been absent from the show for more than a week now.

Where is Ryan Seacrest this week?

Kelly Ripa’s husband and guest host Mark Consuelos is replacing Ryan on the morning ABC programme this week.

According to his social media profiles, Ryan is in good spirits and has been busy filming the upcoming 20th season of American Idol.

Filming for the new series is taking place in Austin, Texas, as shown on in the programme’s Instagram Stories.

Ryan’s absence is likely to be connected to his new three-year contract with iHeartMedia as well.

On September 28th, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Ryan will remain as a key adviser for the company as part of the deal, while he works across all iHeartRadio’s platforms, including On Air With Ryan Seacrest and American Top 40 With Ryan Seacrest.

The article confirms that Ryan will continue working on Live with Kelly and Ryan but it looks like the presenter will be very busy.

On October 4th, he shared a snap with his American Idol colleagues and wrote: “Picking up where we left off. The band is back together for number 20! @americanidol.”

Viewers miss the presenter

Many viewers have taken to Twitter to say that they miss Ryan on the morning show.

“Sweet @MarkConsuelos has been on @LiveKellyRyan last 2 weeks but where has @RyanSeacrest been,” tweeted one person.

“Where has @RyanSeacrest been all week on @LiveKellyRyan ? If they mentioned it I must have missed it. I enjoyed watching Mark but just curious,” wrote another one.

Someone else wrote: “@LiveKellyRyan hey where is @RyanSeacrest ? Holidays? Miss his goofiness lol.”
