MANILA – After going on a temporary leave from the noontime program, Vice Ganda is now back on ‘It’s Showtime.”
“Sobra ko kayong na-miss lahat, mga kapatid ko sa ‘It’s Showtime,’ mga madlang people,” he said shortly after his opening production.
The host-comedian took a temporary leave form the noon-time show citing health reasons.
Contrary to rumors that he went on leave because of problems with his co-workers and the management, Vice Ganda said his leave was purely because of health reasons.
“Nakakainggit pag nanunuod ako sa inyo. Maraming salamat talaga at pinayagan ninyo akong makapagpahinga ng sandali,” he added.
(I felt envious as watch you on TV. Thank you so much for allowing me to rest for a while.)
His co-hosts also gave him a warm welcome.
“It’s definitely a pleasure to have you back here again,” Billy Crawford said.
Vice Ganda also announced that he will be taking another short leave on January as he will be undergoing an operation to remove a polyp in his throat.
A polyp is a fluid-filled collection in the throat forming when the vocal cord is not well-rested.
