Belfast-born Eamonn’s behaviour also riled up many social media users after cutting off co-host Charlotte Hawkins mid-sentence.

He also annoyed many after he made a passing comment to Charlotte about pitching a tent.

The pair were talking about a 10-year-old who lived in a tent for a year, when Eamonn asked: “Charlotte, can you pitch a tent?”

She replied: “I can pitch a tent. I can pitch a tent single-handedly.”

This didn’t sit well with viewers, as they took to Twitter to share their disapproval of Piers’s replacement.

“EamonnHolmes on #GMB giving me the creeps ..Never thought I would say it..Miss you @piersmorgan”.

Yes, they actually said they “miss” Piers Morgan. Wow.

Others said that seeing Eamonn on the sofa made Piers more likeable.

However, there were some that absolutely loved seeing the Irish host on their TV’s this morning.
