Eamonn Holmes is set to leave This Morning after a 15-year stint presenting the show alongside his wife Ruth Langsford, according to reports.

The veteran presenter, 61, will ‘take up a role with GB News’ that will see him ‘front his own show several times a week’.

Noting that ‘all good things come to an end’, a source told The Mirror that Eamonn’s departure ‘came at just the right moment for both him and ITV’.

The source added: ‘Eamonn’s move to GB News marks the end of an era. He’ll be missed by many ITV viewers.’

MailOnline has reached out to ITV and GB News for comment alongside a representative for Eamonn.

Upon GB News’ launch this year, Eamonn said he hoped the channel got a ‘decent chance,’ The Mirror reports.

He is said to have continued: ‘We need a shake-up on the news front. I have huge respect for TV news but this is a reminder news is not just Westminster or a constant woke agenda.’

Meanwhile, Eamonn’s move is likely to jeopardise 61-year-old Ruth’s This Morning slot.

The paper said she is ‘unlikely to remain on the show without him’ but ‘is expected to continue as a regular on Loose Women’.

In December, Eamonn and Ruth were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary following a 14-year stint.

It was revealed on November 30 that Ruth and Eamonn, who fill in for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on Fridays, had been cut from their weekly slot to be replaced with Alison and Dermot.

At the time, Eamonn and Ruth both sent out an identical statement 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.’

Breaking her silence on the shake-up following weeks of speculation, Alison said in a statement: ‘I never dreamt that when I first joined This Morning – initially for a few months – that I would still be there 19 years later.

‘I genuinely care about the show and the viewers who watch, so it’s a huge privilege and honour to be hosting a show I adore so much. I’m just really excited to be doing even more of what I love alongside the lovely Dermot.’

Sharing his own statement, co-host Dermot said: ‘I’m deeply thrilled and honoured to be joining the This Morning team next year. We have huge shoes to fill and we are well aware what a privilege it is to be stepping into them.

‘Above all, we want to have fun and for you to be able to kick your weekend off with a smile, especially given the year we’ve all had.

‘So I’m delighted to be co-hosting with the living embodiment of sunshine on a rainy day. I can’t wait to get started.’

New of the This Morning reshuffle came just months after Eamonn was forced to apologise for saying it ‘suited the state narrative’ to dismiss bizarre theories that link 5G and the coronavirus.

A day after making the comments on This Morning, he clarified on air that ‘there is no connection between the present national health emergency and 5G and to suggest otherwise would be wrong and indeed it could be possibly dangerous’.

Eammon’s comments saw regulator OFCOM receive 419 complaints.
