Vanna certainly knows the job well, since she's been hosting the iconic game show alongside Pat since 1983.

Despite Pat's sudden medical emergency, he's looking at a long future on the show.

Sajak has been internet hosting Wheel of Fortune, which is the longest-running syndicated sport present within the USA, since 1982.

The long-running game show's official Twitter announced the news on Friday and shared that Thursday's taping of the show had to be canceled when 73-year-old Sajak underwent surgery to correct a blocked intestine. Since then they have hosted the show together. "Taping resumed today as scheduled, and Vanna White has stepped in a host". His surgery meant that the taping of the show scheduled for November 6 had to be cancelled. Sadly, the television icon was absent from the episode filmed on November 7 due to health issues.

After both couples had danced a second time the judges delivered their verdicts - and it was a unanimous decision. I have lost a stone and a half.

Vanna White has a new, albeit temporary, gig. White joined the show in 1982 and the duo have been closely identified with the show for decades. It completed 7000 episodes on 10th May 2019.

The new episodes hosted by White will begin airing on December 9. He wants to exit the show as a host when it is still popular. This is White's second time filling in for Sajak.

Sajak and White renewed their contracts and will be connected to the show until 2022.

We hope that he recovers well and takes on his hosting gradually.
