As he takes over as presenter of This Morning, Eamonn Holmes extends his best wishes to Alison Hammond.
Alison Hammond, who was unable to present This Morning with Rochelle Humes owing to sickness, received well wishes from EAMONN HOLMES.
After bidding farewell to wife Ruth Langsford last week, viewers of This Morning were surprised to see Eamonn Holmes return. However, when Alison Hammond became unwell, he took over as co-host of the show with Rochelle Humes. Eamonn was quick to send Alison a get-well greeting, expressing his delight at reuniting with the Saturdays singer.
Eamonn launched the show by saying, “It’s a bank holiday Monday, and it’s Eamonn and Rochelle, who would have guessed?”
“It works quite well,” Rochelle added. When we perform the program together, you know what I prefer. The mugs do not need to be replaced by the team.
“They can take remove the E and R and make it simple for everyone.”
“A really solid point,” Eamonn agreed. Today was meant to be Alison and Rochelle, but Alison isn’t feeling well, so please get better soon, Alison.
“Just when you thought you’d gotten rid of me after seven weeks, I reappeared like a bad penny.”
Rochelle reassured her co-host, “That is not true, not at all.”
On Sunday evening, Eamonn tweeted to his one million followers, “But just when you thought you’d gotten rid of me…. illness with @AlisonHammond and @vernonkay means I’m off the bench.”
“I’m sure they’ll be better soon, but I’ve got my boots on and I’m ready to play. My Monday and Tuesday lineup has been changed to include myself and @RochelleHumes. I hope you will be able to join us.”
Fans reacted positively, with one writing, “Brilliant news Eamonn, see you for a beautiful extra two days.” whoop whoop whoop whoop whoop whoop whoop
“The last two weeks on This Morning have been an absolute delight,” a second added. I could sit here and watch you two all day.”
It comes after Vernon Kay said that he, too, will be skipping his appearance on This Morning as a guest host.
After testing positive for coronavirus, Eamonn will also be filling in for the I’m A Celerity star.
“I’m really devastated that, due to a positive Covid test, I won’t be able to present on This Morning with Rochelle next week, nor do Radio 2 guest hosting and Steve Wright’s cover, two legendary shows that I’ve been a fan of for decades,” he told The Sun.
Eamonn was co-hosting with his wife. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
