He’s the controversial former ‘King of Daytime TV’ who’s been absent from our screens for the past few months, but it seems like Karl Stefanovic is coming back with a bang.

The 44-year-old former Today show host, who is set to host This Time Next Year on Channel Nine in the coming months, is said to also be making a comeback on 60 Minutes.

“Nine has a master plan for Karl,” a TV insider told Woman’s Day,” which apparently includes making a return to 60 Minutes.

Karl returning to the Today show?

The news comes after New Idea reported that Karl is set to make a return to Today, but he’s not planning on getting comfy.

It’s claimed that the TV veteran is coming back for a short stint in exchange for a much bigger slice of the pie.

“Karl has done a deal to go back to the Today show next year for three months,” the source told the magazine.

“His payoff will be a late-night prime-time news show to anchor.”

Mass dumping at Nine

Karl was famously dumped from the Today show at the end of last year following a string of controversies.

His younger brother, Peter Stefanovic and his sister-in-law, Sylvia Jeffreys, also followed him out the door.

And despite the 44-year-old being dumped from Channel Nine’s Today show back in December, his 37-year-old brother, Peter Stefanovic, still thinks he’s the ‘biggest star in Australia’.

Speaking to news.com.au about the roasting Tom Gleeson gave Karl at this year’s Logies awards show, Peter said it was ‘funny’ and that ‘Karl was always gonna cop it’.

“He’s the biggest star in Australia, he knew he was gonna cop it,” Peter said.

“But what it showed is we really miss him, people enjoy seeing him back on camera. He’s a great entertainer, he should be on the box regularly.

“Even I enjoy seeing him back. I missed him.”

Tom Gleeson, who took home the top gong, ripped into the one-time Gold Logie winner and took aim at both his public sacking and high-profile wedding to Jasmine Yarborough.
