Both Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have issued a statement as it was revealed Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond will officially take over their Friday morning slot on This Morning next month.
Over the last number of years, the much-loved couple presented the show each Friday morning and hosted over the holidays while Phil and Holly took some time off.
While rumours of their departure had been circulating for a few weeks, ITV confirmed a massive shake-up last night.
Fellow Irish presenter Dermot O’Leary and This Morning regular Alison Hammond will host the show on Friday mornings – however it’s not the last we’ll see of Eamonn and Ruth, as they’ll continue to present during key holidays throughout the course of the year.
Taking to social media, Eamonn and Ruth broke their silence, sharing identical statements which read: “It’s a changing of the guard on Fridays from January.
“We hope you make Alison and Dermot as welcome as you’ve made us over the years. Have a ball you two! It’s not goodbye from us, it’s simply Au Revoir until the next half term.”
Alison and Dermot will take over the role from January 8th. We can’t wait to see what Eamonn and Ruth get up to next!
