On Wednesday, Shephard confirmed he would be taking a break from Good Morning Britain - but cleared up rumours that the exit was permanent in a post on Instagram today.
“Ahh there’s nothing quite like working with @kategarraway,” he wrote, sharing a selfie of the two presenters behind-the-scenes in the GMB studio.
“Have loved having her back in the studio - although still not sure about her “a warm Shephard oozing all over you” comment.
“Thank you for all your messages, despite Kate trying to get us both sacked,” he continued. “And a few very random online reports - I’m not leaving @gmb (sorry!) just off to catch up with series 11 of @itvtippingpoint which was put on hold because of Covid.
“Anyway will be back with Kate in the GMB studio in September for more of the same!!”
Shephard has made the most of having Garraway back in the studio, sharing a number of hilarious selfies with his co-presenter - including one in which they donned alarming face masks designed to look like faces.
"These aren’t weird at all," he wrote. "The no face mask, face mask!! A screen print of your mouth and nose, on the face mask??!?! Certainly made us smile.
"Great to be with @kategarraway again this morning - you never know what’s going to happen!!"
Shephard has presented Tipping Point for ITV since its debut in 2012.
Garraway and Shephard began presenting Good Morning Britain together again in July, after Garraway had taken three months off to care for her husband Derek Draper.
Draper fell seriously ill with Covid-19 in March, and despite now testing negative for the virus, Garraway said it has caused "extraordinary damage" to his entire body.
