Today is on its way to becoming Australia's top rated breakfast show once again.

And in their quest to turn back time, it appears that one graphic designer at Channel Nine got a little too excited about Karl Stefanovic's huge return this week. 

In his latest promotional poster alongside co-host Allison 'Ally' Langdon, the 45-year-old looks like he's jumped back a decade or so to his former glory days.

Karl resembles more of a waxwork than newsreader in the flawless poster.

It appears he has been digitally slimmed down too, as well as having his skin  professionally airbrushed and hair thickened by a retouching team.

The poster is in contrast to Karl's latest Instagram post, where he poked fun at his slight weight gain over the years with a recent paparazzi picture from the beach.
