Eamonn Holmes, 62, has divided fans after confirming that he will be moving to GB News after 15 years on ITV’s This Morning alongside wife Ruth Langsford, 61. The presenter took to Twitter to announce the news after rumours were rife about his career move for the past couple of weeks.

Eamonn encouraged his one million followers on the social media platform to “come with him” and tune into his new show after becoming a fan favourite on This Morning.

The star penned: “Here is The News …..  

“I’m joining @GBNEWS from The New Year.  

“Hope you are coming with me and wish me well. 

“In the meantime Compliments of The Season to you and thanks for your support folks.”

Some fans were quick to inform Eamonn that they were looking forward to supporting him in his new role.

Tracy Dixon added: “Good for you Eamonn, looking forward to watching you, GB News is a breath of fresh air x.”

 

Gillian replied: “Congrats Eamonn. Can’t wait to see you on our screens again. You’ll be great!”

Betty 1403 said: “I might just tune in for that Eamonn. Merry Xmas to you Ruth and the Family.”

However, others were less than impressed, sharing that they would miss the presenter on the This Morning sofa.

Sue Challinor penned: “Good luck, wish you were still on This Morning with Ruth.”

Nick Lucas joked: “This is like when Noel Gallagher went from Oasis to the High Flying Birds.”

Pete Richardson commented: “Nope, definitely not with you on this one. Cheerio.”

Discussing the move in a statement, Eamonn said: “I’ve spent my career on broadcasting firsts and start-ups, and GB News is one of the most exciting yet.

“It’s just the kind of shake-up the industry needs.” 

“I’ve admired GB News from the beginning for its clever mix of punchy debate but delivered with warmth and even some fun. 

“To me, the greatest honour in journalism is to give a voice and respect to the unheard, and that’s exactly what GB News is all about.” 

It comes after Eamonn and his wife Ruth were axed from their weekly This Morning slot in 2020. 

The pair had hosted Friday’s episode since 2006 but were replaced with Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond. 

Eamonn and Ruth were then asked to step in to present during the summer holidays while Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby took a break.
