Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford in one of last shows as they brace for This Morning exit

Loose Women: Ruth recalls intimate moment with Eamonn

Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford hosted the first festive show of This Morning’s holiday edition as the countdown to Christmas begins. ITV fans were pleased to see the husband and wife duo taking charge, as this is one of their very last appearances ahead of the presenting change set to come into force in 2021 which sees them lose their regular Friday slot. 

Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “We may as well enjoy Eamonn and Ruth. Because the next time we see them on #ThisMorning will probably be February next year during half term or July next year during the summer holidays.” 

“Don’t think I’ve ever been so pleased to hear it’ll be Eamonn and Ruth from today #ThisMorning (sic),” another wrote. 

A third added: “Haha gosh I’ll miss Eamonn & Ruth! Eamonn is so condescending I love it #ThisMorning.” 

@thismorning Really looking forward to watching Eamonn and Ruth this week and today it’s the added bonus of my favourite chef,” someone else mentioned.

It comes after ITV announced Ruth and Eamonn would no longer be presenting This Morning every Friday. 

Instead, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary are taking over hosting the final show of the week. 

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will remain in their usual Monday to Thursday, term time slot. 

And Ruth and Eamonn would return during school holidays to take over the four days. 

When ITV made the announcement, Eamonn and Ruth both put out a statement – which was the exact same – accompanied by an image.  

“It’s a changing of the guard on Fridays from January,” the caption read.

“We hope you make Alison and Dermot as welcome as you’ve made us over the years. Have a Ball you two!
“t’s not Goodbye from us, it’s simply Au Revoir until the next half term.”
