Bad timing: Kelly Ripa sported a white strapless wedding dress while Nick Lachey put on stilts under his suit as Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries on this morning's edition of Live! With Regis and Kelly

With Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries today announcing their split, the timing was impeccable for Kelly Ripa and Nick Lachey's choice of Halloween costume.

Lachey, 37, who guest hosted on Live! With Regis and Kelly this morning, put on stilts underneath black trousers and sported a white tuxedo in a hilarious spoof of Kris's appearance at August's reality wedding.

And 41-year-old Kelly channelled her inner reality TV star in a dark Kim style wig, meringue dress and diamond headband and veil.

They were clearly having a great time as they waved and posed for pictures on a special Halloween edition of the show.

But at the time of planning their Kim and Kris outfits, they would have been unaware of the divorce announcement made by the couple today.

Nick, standing in for permanent host Regis Philbin, joined in the fun, with the couple appearing as Prince William and Kate Middleton, Sammi 'Sweetheart' from Jersey Shore and Dancing With The Stars Nancy Grace.

I do: The pair exchanged loving glances in the Halloween special which also involved them sporting a selection of other outfits

They also took off reality show Toddlers and Tiaras, Charlie Sheen, an air hostess and pilot from drama Pan Am, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry and Russell Brand.

But despite Regis Philbin being away this morning, he still popped up in the guise of Heidi Klum at the end of the show.

The German-born model arrived in a Regis-style suit, grey wig and make-up.

'It's very hard being Philbin,' said Heidi, who is well known for her impressive Halloween costumes.

'All these wrinkles. I can only deal with it for so long.'
Meanwhile, Kelly had tweeted her excitement before the start of the themed show.

Wedding greeting: Nick was clearly having a good time in his elongated outfit, while Kelly showed off her slim figure in the Kim style dress

Happy Halloween: The couple did their utmost to get into the Halloween spirit on the popular morning show

'So excited!!! Today's Halloween show is fierce! Thanks in advance @NickSLachey! And @HeidiKlum!' Kelly tweeted before this morning's programme.

Nick added on his Twitter: 'Hey everyone, happy halloween!! I had a blast on @Regis_and_Kelly this morning.'
