Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford ignore This Morning axe as they return to host one of their last shows

EAMONN Holmes and Ruth Langsford today brushed off being axed from hosting This Morning on Fridays as they returned for one of their final shows.

The presenters ignored the drama surrounding the popular ITV show since it was revealed they're being replaced by Alison Hammon and Dermot O'Leary.

Fans have been in uproar about the change in schedule which sees Eamonn and Ruth kicked off their usual spot.

But rather than kicking off, the married couple kept stchum about their real feelings and made small talk about the weather instead.

"Good Morning," said Eamonn.

"Wnd what a chilly morning it was. It was very pretty, but nippy."

The long-serving pair are reportedly furious about the decision to be replaced on Fridays.

Alison and Dermott previously impressed bosses when they hosted the show together over the summer, with producers keen to add more diversity to their line-up.

Now Ruth and Eamonn only host the main show in the six-week summer holidays when Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are away.

A TV insider previously told The Sun that Eamonn feared he was "too pale, stale and male" to remain a regular face on This Morning for much longer.

They explained: "Eamonn and Ruth are incredibly popular with viewers and loved across the board.

"No one wants to see them go. The shows execs have some very tricky decisions.

"Eamonn fears he is basically too ‘pale, stale and male’, and, at 60, perhaps not in line with the youth drive broadcasters are after."
