LAURA Kuenssberg was missing from her hosting duties on the BBC today – without an explanation.
Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg was broadcast live from Liverpool where Labour is holding its annual conference.
Laura was replaced by Newsnight presenter Victoria Derbyshire, who told her X followers: "Good morning from Liverpool. Am standing in for #BBCLauraK today."
When Victoria kicked off the show she told viewers she was "standing in for Laura".
She is also covering Laura on her Newscast podcast.
Laura was last off work just two weeks ago.
Last time Victoria stood in for Laura, the Scottish presenter shared her apologies on X, telling followers: "Sorry everyone, I can’t make #bbclaurak or #newscast this weekend – but don’t miss @vicderbyshire in the chair at 9 tomorrow on @BBCOne".
Laura has not acknowledged her absence from the show.
She last used social media on October 1.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was on the 60-minute programme to answer questions on his bid to win next year's General Election.
