Eamonn Holmes confirmed he had signed up to join GB News on December 10, following reports he and Ruth Langsford may not be returning to This Morning. The 61-year-old presenter announced his new move on Twitter as he thanked fans for their continuous support in recent times. 

At the weekend, the broadcaster informed fans about another show he had worked on titled Northern Ireland Onscreen.

In response to his post, a Twitter user name Babs wrote: “Not interested in Eamonn Holmes any more since he joined GB News!”

Hitting back, he wrote: “Why don’t u just watch the Breakfast show first Babs?(sic)

“Hard to criticise what u haven’t seen. I deliver the news in a way that I have always done. Nothing changes.”(sic)

Eamonn’s announcement comes after he and Ruth were dropped from This Morning’s Friday episode in favour of Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond.

Their last stint on the show was during the summer holidays this year in Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield’s absence.

From January, Eamonn and Isabel Webster will be the first to present on the dual service when their programme airs on January 4.

Chief executive officer Angelos Frangopoulos said: “With radio, we’re turning traditional media on its head because everyone will be able to continue with the same channel whether they’re at home, travelling, or at work.

“We set out to innovate and shake up news media and that’s what we’re doing, whether it’s on mass reach television and DAB radio, online, apps, live on YouTube, or digital platforms, GB News will be wherever audiences want us to be.

Eamonn’s new role comes as GB News confirmed Simon McCoy had stepped down for “personal reasons”.

The latter had joined the channel nine months ago after quitting BBC.

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
