On Sunday morning, Eamonn Holmes joined Alan Titchmarsh’s show to discuss his 40-year career as a presenter and journalist. Eamonn recently made the move from ITV’s This Morning to present and debate political views on GB News. Ruth and Eamonn have been married since 2010 and presented on This Morning for 15 years, becoming one of the nation’s favourite on-screen duos. However, Eamonn recently admitted to Alan Titchmarsh his wife could not leave their disagreements at home when it came to presenting together.

Alan asked: “We’ve got to talk about working with your wife, working with Ruth, one of the few sort of spouse on-screen partnerships.

“It does mean that you sort of bring the mood at home onto the sofa, doesn’t it,” to which Eamonn slammed: “I think she does.

“I think she does, I think she’s incapable of separating that, but the thing that is interesting and people’s fascination with it, we’ve all been in partnerships on TV.

“They are contrived, they are all put together, they’re not real, you’re lucky if you get on with your co-host and whatever.

“Sometimes we haven’t, all of us….” Eamonn began to laugh, to which Alan cheekily joked: “Well, you famously haven’t got on with one or two and been quite vocal about it.”

Eamonn continued: “I tell the truth, I bet you have presented with people you haven’t liked, I bet you have!

“But, when you sit with someone, and you know your partner is on telly and real life as well, it can be quite real.”

Fascinated by Eamonn’s long-standing career, Alan said: “The secret surely though Eamonn is to keep being interested genuinely in the subject you’re talking about.

“You’ve got to maintain a great interest, don’t you?”

Agreeing with his statement, Eamonn replied: “You do, a great interest, people talk about how you prepare for a programme.

“I wouldn’t sit down and do homework and all that before the programme, every day is preparation whether you listen to the radio or watch TV.

“You’re absorbing and taking stuff in, and you’re trying to reflect peoples live, it’s their real lives.”

The 62-year-old presenter, who guest-hosted the ITV daytime show since 2006, recently joined GB News after it was revealed he and Ruth would no longer fill in for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

Speaking about his departure from the show, he told The Times: “I don’t have any issues at all.”

Fans were upset at the end of last year when they announced their departure from the show and were to be replaced by Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond.

Since his departure, Eamonn has moved to present Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel alongside Isabel Webster on GB News.

Ruth told Best Magazine: “I’m thrilled, it’s what he does best! He’s always been very entertaining on This Morning, Eamonn can turn his hand to anything.

“He’s a total news junkie, I’m very proud of him, [but] yes, no more This Morning together, but it doesn’t mean there [isn’t] another project we can do together,” she teased.

ITV said in a statement: “We would like to wish Eamonn all of the very best in his new role.

“As a duo, Eamonn and Ruth have been part of the This Morning presenting team for the last 15 years, and we thank Eamonn for all of his hard work and contribution to the show.”
