Surprise twist after Good Morning America love affair scandal

Good Morning America co-hosts Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes have reportedly been taken off air after they found themselves at the centre of a scandal.

Last week it emerged the anchors of Good Morning America's lunchtime show GMA3 had been having an alleged secret love affair for months.

Page Six exclusively revealed the pair had been seen 'canoodling' in bars back in May, with a staffer suggesting the co-hosts had been "careful" to hide the alleged affair.

Stephanie Ramos and Gio Benitez have taken over hosting duties this week, with a source telling the Daily Mail T.J. and Amy have been taken off the air while the network figures out how to deal with the PR nightmare.

According to TMZ, ABC News president Kim Godwin said they would be taken off the air for now during an internal phone call.


"I want to say that while that relationship is not a violation of company policy, I have really taken the last few days to think about and work through what I think is best for the ABC News organisation," she said, according to the publication.

"This is something I'm not going to talk ... we're not going to talk about on this call until there is more to be said. I'm asking that we stop the whispering in the hallways. You know, we can't operate with gossip, and speculation and rumours. We need to stay focused on the work.

"If you think there is something that management needs to know, you can always call HR or, as we've said, talk to a manager that you trust, if you think there is something that we need to know."

An inside source told Daily Mail T.J. and Amy were close friends and often ran together and socialised with each other's spouses, who they both married in 2010.

While the pair both appear to have deactivated their Instagram accounts, Page Six reports fans pointed out Amy had not been wearing a wedding ring in recent photos and had stopped sharing snaps of her husband Andrew Shue.
