Nine boss Hugh Marks CONFIRMS Karl Stefanovic will attend the Logies – but his wife Jasmine Yarbrough may be a ‘no show’ as she presents her shoe range to fashion buyers in Paris

Karl Stefanovic will attend the 61st annual TV Week Logie Awards on Sunday after being unceremoniously dumped from the Today show in December last year.   

Channel Nine boss Hugh Marks confirmed the 44-year-old has scored a seat at TV’s night of nights as he spoke at the National Press Club in Canberra on Wednesday. 

It’s believed Karl will attend the annual awards ceremony on the Gold Coast without his new wife, Jasmine Yarbrough, 34, as she continues to present her shoe range to fashion buyers in Paris, France.

On Monday, The Australian reported Karl will turn up to this year’s Logies ‘despite not appearing on Channel Nine’s final RSVP list of approximately 90 people’.  

The publication also claimed Karl’s absence from the list could be a ploy by Channel Nine to keep his highly-anticipated Logies comeback a secret from the public.   

The newspaper also suggested Karl’s new wife would supposedly ‘take a leave pass’ from this year’s awards ceremony on Queensland’s Glitter Strip.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine and representatives for both Karl and Jasmine for comment. 

Meanwhile one of the Logies’ most memorable controversies occurred when Karl hosted the Today show drunk the morning after the 2009 ceremony. 

Karl infamously reported from Melbourne’s Crown Casino looking visibly worse for wear, and even confessed on air that he hadn’t had any sleep.

In a 2014 interview, the high-profile journalist admitted he was ‘smashed’ and that it would have gone unnoticed if it wasn’t for the popularity of YouTube. 

‘This was the first Logies when stuff really started working on the Internet,’ Karl said.

‘I remember seeing it on Today Tonight and going, “Oh God”. I really was drunk…or at least I certainly looked and sounded drunk.’

In 2010, Karl was banned from the bar and made to work as a red carpet correspondent to prevent a repeat performance.
