The Irish presenter was reunited with Kate Garraway and fans of the show were quick to get out the throwback snaps to their days together on GMTV.

One viewer reminisced about Eamonn’s days on the previous breakfast show incarnation: “@EamonnHolmes @kategarraway Rewind to 2001 when I watched #GMTV before heading to school. Haven’t aged at all. Great to see Eamonn on #GMB.”

Another fan wrote on Twitter: “Dear @ITV please give @EamonnHolmes a permanent job on Good Morning Britain he’s fantastic #GMB.”

“Can we dump @piersmorgan and keep @EamonnHolmes please please please!! #GMB,” another added.

Speaking about being back on the show Eamonn, 57, said: “It has definitely been the same in many ways.

“Thank you for having me.”

Despite viewers calling for Eamonn to become a permanent host it looks like his wife Ruth Langsford wouldn’t be a fan.

The broadcaster revealed his wife wasn’t amused by the crack of dawn alarm clock.

He said: “She’s not happy.

“It was 2.40am the alarm clock today, she was not pleased.

“I think there will be separate sleeping arrangements in force tomorrow.”

Preparing for the early morning start Eamonn tweeted: “That’s what your alarm looks like when it’s time to get up for breakfast telly ….. It sounds a lot worse. But hey, let’s go.”

Ruth, also 57, replied: “Great to see him back on the @GMB sofa but have to be honest, I didn’t like this bit!”
