After previously teasing something special, Nancy shared a teaser clip and announced on Instagram on Sunday (19.07.20): "Sorry for the mini delay but the Secret's Out! @katiecouric and I got the PARENT TRAP cast back together for the first time since we made our movie.

The broadcaster shared the same teaser on her own Instagram account.
She wrote: "Boy, do @nmeyers and I have a treat for you! We got the cast of the Parent Trap together again for the first time since 1998.
"The full episode will premiere exclusively on my Instagram TOMORROW at 9 AM ET. Make sure to mark your calendars - you won't want to miss this!! (sic)"
The movie - which was a remake of a 1961 movie - featured Lindsay as two teenagers, Annie James and Hallie Parker, who met at summer camp and discovered they were twins who had been separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents.
The pair decide to switch places to bring their mum and dad - who were played by the late Natasha Richardson and Dennis - back together.
