Earlier this month, Eamonn and Ruth thrilled fans when they returned to host This Morning during the half-term break.

At the start of the year, the pair were replaced on Friday editions of the daytime show by Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond.

Good job he had a good 18th last year pre lockdown.

However, many viewers begged ITV to bring back the husband and wife duo on Fridays.

Those watching seemed to love the pair’s funny bickering ways and wanted them to stay.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Have missed you both so much. I loved watching you on a Friday. Have emailed ITV asking them to reconsider!”
