Regis Philbin will be taking some time off next week to undergo a medical procedure, reports Entertainment Tonight.

The talk show host revealed Thursday on ‘Live with Regis and Kelly,’ that he has a blood clot in his calf and he’s having it removed next Tuesday.

No word on who might fill-in with Kelly Ripa to co-host the popular morning show.

Philbin, 78, had open-heart surgery in March 2007 and underwent hip replacement surgery in December.
