Eamonn Holmes' most ridiculous moments on TV

ITV viewers have celebrated as Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford returned to host This Morning for the first time in 2021.

The married presenting pair were removed from their regular Friday timeslot at the end of last year, and were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

It was stipulated, however, that Holmes and Langsford would return as guest presenters during This Morning’s half term episodes, the first of which aired earlier today (15 February).

Viewers expressed their delight at the couple’s return on social media.

“So happy to see @EamonnHolmes and @RuthieeL back on #ThisMorning,” wrote one viewer. “Going to be tuned in all week. Much missed.”

“So good to see @EamonnHolmes & @RuthieeL back on together,” wrote someone else. “I miss you both but half terms are something to look forward to now. We are in the capable & safe hands of Holly & Phil & Alison & Dermot and can look forward to half terms holidays to see you both on.”

“ Yay! THE BEST presenting duo are back on #ThisMorning - back where they should be!” wrote another Twitter user. “@ITV bring back @RuthieeL and @EamonnHolmes on Fridays! Axing them was a HUGE mistake!!”

While Hammond and O’Leary have taken over the Friday slot, This Morning is still hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby during its regular weekday episodes.
