Vice Ganda suddenly became emotional during the recent episode of the well-known Kapamilya noontime show entitled “It’s Showtime.”

KAMI learned that the said program already aired its last live episode before it takes a month-long break because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

People in Metro Manila are advised to stay home and that is why the Kapamilya network decided to halt the scheduled taping of the majority of its shows.

While hosting last Saturday, the popular comedian suddenly thought of the fact that he will not be seeing his co-hosts for a month or more.

Jugs Jugueta and Jhong Hilario immediately comforted him by saying that they will just be gone on television temporarily.

“Huling live na ‘to!” Vice exclaimed.

“Okay lang yan. Babalik pa tayo,” Jugs replied.

Vice also stated that although there will be no live episodes for more or less 30 days, the show will continue to bring happiness to the public by airing its previous episodes.

“Gustuhin man namin kayong pasayahin ng live araw-araw katulad ng nakasanayan namin, panandalian muna tayong hindi magkikita-kita ng live,” the comedian quipped.

“Naghanda po ang programa namin ng mga mapapanood niyo pa rin na mga ganap dito sa Showtime na magbibigay sa inyo ng katatawanan, ng kasiyahan ng sa ganon po ay gumaan ang loob ninyo araw-araw habang hinaharap natin ang krisis na ito,” he added.
