Eamonn Holmes appears to confirm move to GB News after 15 years on This Morning

Eamonn Holmes appears to have confirmed a move to GB News, following reports earlier in the week about a potential move to the channel after 15 years presenting This Morning with wife Ruth Langsford.

The 61 year old presenter has not officially confirmed the news, but liked a twitter post that was posted by journalist Dawn Neesom on Friday November 12, appearing to congratulate Eamonn on his new role.

The post said: "@EamonnHolmes joining @GBNEWS.

"Wow. So looking forward to working with my lovely, kind & incredibly supportive former @talkRADIO colleague again."

It was accompanied by a photo of Dawn and Eamonn at Talk Radio, and soon after, Eamonn liked the tweet.

However, despite Eamonn liking the tweet, neither himself, GB News or representatives for ITV have released a statement or provided a comment confirming the move.

Fans also took to social media to comment on the post, congratulating Eamonn on his new job role.

One fan said: "Brilliant news. Another great name to the line up," while a second said "Fantastic news."

A third fan also commented: "What a coup for GB News. Eamonn always comes across as a genuinely nice guy."

Eamonn has been a well-known face on television screens since the early nineties, hosting GMTV from 1993-2005.

He then hosted Sky News Sunrise from 2005-2016 and for over 15 years, has also had hosting stints on ITV programme This Morning, alongside wife Ruth Langsford.

However a few months ago, he and Ruth were replaced on their Friday morning slot by Dermot O' Leary and Alison Hammond.

His move to GB News was also reported earlier in the week, with a source previously telling The Mirror: "Eamonn’s move to GB News marks the end of an era.

"He’ll be missed by many ITV viewers but, the truth is, this job offer probably came at just the right moment for both him and ITV. All good things come to an end."

This Morning airs at 10am on ITV.
