Despite ongoing reports, Channel Nine has confirmed Karl Stefanovic won't be returning as host of the embattled Today show - despite his cocky claims that he's the network's 'lucky charm'. 

According to a report by Yahoo! Lifestyle on Friday, Channel Nine was considering reinstating the 45-year-old as host alongside Allison Langdon.

And speaking to Nova FM's Fitzy & Wippa on Friday, Karl confessed he was gunning to get his old job back.
