As the duo was enjoying a round of Eamonn and Ruth-themed mini-golf, cameras panned down to Eamonn's shoes.

Some viewers noticed that he was wearing a comfortable-looking pair of casual pumps instead of his usual smart shoes.

The viewer wrote: "Whilst on mat leave I'm becoming one those 'daytime tv watchers' and spotting random things like @EamonnHolmes wearing trainers with a suit on #thismorning" followed by a woman shrugging emoji.

Incidentally, they are not trainers - they are Jimmy Choos.
