As Australia wakes up with the new Today line-up – with co-hosts Georgie Gardner, Deborah Knight and newsreader Tom Steinfort – for the first time this week, the breakfast program’s former leading man, Karl Stefanovic, is slowly coming to terms with his new life.

Sporting jeans and a casual jumper, the 44-year-old is said to be relishing his new-found freedom and sleep-ins.

 He was recently spotted at The Buena, a pub in Sydney’s affluent harbourside suburb of Mosman, where he was seen having a few drinks and playing the poker machines.

“It was a beautiful sunny day outside but Karl was the only person in the pokie room and he was playing alone,” reports an onlooker.

According to an industry insider, Karl’s solo outing came just days after the father-of-three met with Channel Nine bosses following his most recent social media scandal.

The newlywed had apparently thrown his support behind his Instagram followers who expressed their distaste over the new line-up of the troubled breakfast show, by liking their posts.

And while Karl insists his Instagram account was hacked while he was out fishing, and that he has reported the incident to authorities, a police spokesperson has told New Idea no complaint was ever made to them and therefore an investigation is not under way.
