Kelly has been hosting Live on her own since Monday, when the show announced Ryan had taken the day off.
‘Live now!’ the show posted on Instagram, along with behind-the-scenes footage of Kelly on stage. ‘Ryan took the day off.’
She again hosted Live solo on Tuesday.
Ryan’s absence comes after Kelly revealed her potential plans to leave Live! after nearly 20 years as its host.

The All My Children alum told Parade earlier this month: ‘I’ve been writing a lot. So my goal ultimately would be to eventually get off camera and start working behind the camera more in that creative aspect because I really do enjoy the writing process so much.’
She admitted that co-host Ryan Seacrest, 45, is one of the reasons she hasn’t bowed out of the talk show just yet.
Ripa said: ‘I talk about this with Ryan all the time because I was really looking to retire like by now, but Ryan Seacrest is so fabulous to work with and he is such a good friend. We’ve been friends for two decades, and I’ve got to tell you he is really such a draw to me there.’

She added: ‘I just love working with him so much. He makes every day feel like I’m not working and that’s when you know you have a great working relationship.’
The duo have been hosting Live in person since September, after several months manning the show from home.
Despite years in the studio, being back on set during the pandemic has been ‘surreal’ for Kelly.
She told Insider: ‘It’s a little bit surreal because it’s Ryan and me, and we sit at two separate desks now. It looks like we’re very close to each other, but we’re actually quite far apart. Neither one of us can really hear each other well.’
