Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford usually present the Friday This Morning show but it has been reported the couple have been dropped from the presenting line-up. Instead, Alison Hammond and X Factor host Dermot O’Leary are said to be taking over from the couple who have presented the show since 2006.

After 14 years at the helm of This Morning, alongside Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Eamonn and Ruth have been dropped from the show.

The pair are said to be “furious and upset” with the decision to replace them.

The couple are firm favourites with viewers and their exit will come as a shock to many.

A source told Mirror Online of Dermot and Alison taking over: “They have real warmth.

“It’s time for a change and they are perfect.

“Eamonn is pretty furious and everyone feels for him and Ruth, they are well liked on the team, but sometimes tough decisions have to be made.”
