David Koch was a noticeable absentee from the Sunrise desk on Friday, with the host set to take extended leave.
But it’s all for a wonderful cause – the wedding of his youngest daughter who is set to tie the knot in London.
“Georgie is getting married, the last of the four, so it’s going to be good,” he said.
The father of four and grandfather to eight revealed he still hadn’t met his future son-in-law, Alex Merks, who is German.
“We’re all sharing a house with him and his parents for a week before the wedding and we’ve never met them,” he revealed.
“It’ll either be Father of the Bride or Nightmare on Elm Street!
“It will be a bit of fun.”
Kochie will take three weeks off to celebrate the nuptials in the UK, with David Shirvington warming his seat at the desk until his return.
The popular host took to social media in September 2020 to congratulate the lovebirds for their engagement.
In May, Koch had to leave the Sunrise broadcast three hours early due to a health issue.
The breakfast show star was on screen for the first 25 minutes of the program but vanished after an ad break.
His sudden departure was announced by Natalie Barr who told viewers her co-anchor was suffering with a bout of laryngitis.
“You may notice something slightly different,” she said to the camera.
Kochie came in (and) he bravely fought on for about 25 minutes. He had laryngitis yesterday and apparently he still got it. He couldn’t really speak. ”
