Is Billy Crawford still part of “It’s Showtime”? This was the question of some of his fans after Kim Atienza tweeted on Monday photos with Crawford and other former co-hosts of the noontime program.
One of the photos showed Atienza, Crawford, Coleen Garcia, and Eric Tai doing the same pose — crossing their arms to form an “X”.
Some followers of Atienza speculated the pose signified something the four celebrities had in common — that they have all exited “It’s Showtime.”
“It’s Showtime! You will always be family!” Atienza wrote in the caption.
Atienza was one of the original hosts of the program since 2009. He left in 2016. Both Garcia and Tai were mainstays for four years until 2016.
Crawford, meanwhile, joined the show in 2011, and went on hiatus leading up to his April 2018 wedding with Garcia. He has yet to return as a regular on “It’s Showtime,” but remained visisble on TV as the host of the second edition of “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids.”
While he hasn’t resumed hosting duties on “It’s Showtime,” Crawford was most recently seen on the program in July, when he visited the live studio. At the time, Vice Ganda revealed that Crawford was busy working on an album. Neither specified when he would return as a mainstay, if at all.
