This Morning viewers love Eamonn and Ruth stand-ins

Viewers thought they were hilarious

We’ve seen a series of stand-in presenters taking up residence on This Morning’s sofas over the past few Fridays – but these two might be the best so far.

With Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes covering Holly Willoughby and Phil Schofield’s summer break during the week, new presenting dup Rochelle Humes and Gok Wan stepped up for today’s show.

And viewers were in stitches watching the pair giggle their way through.

One wrote: “Crying laughing at Gok & Rochelle this morning. Can we keep them? 🤞🤞🤞”.

Another added: “Loving this morning with Gok & Rochelle brilliant team thanks for brightening my day ❤️”.

Twitter was in love with the pair (credit: Twitter)

A third tweeted: “@thismorning I’m loving Rochelle and gok on this morning, it’s like their two mates having a right laugh, their really making me giggle 😂 #thenewphillandholly ❤️”.

Others even suggested replacing the full-time presenters with these two.

A fan commented: “Im so loving gok and Rochelle presenting.. get rid of holly and Phil and have these 2 as main presenters and watch the ratings blossom..”

Another said: “My fave presenter will always be our gorgeous @Rylan but if he can’t make it can we please have Gok and Rochelle more often, they’re hilarious! 🌟😂💗 xxx”.

But many sitting at home were a little less impressed with fashion expert Gok’s choice of shirt.

“Gok. What is that shirt this morning”, wrote one viewer.

Someone else added: “Gok wan dresses like he’s going to watch a Beach Boys gig #ThisMorning”.

One fan defended him though, writing: “Gok Wan is wearing the most MAGNIFICENT shirt on this morning”.

The pair repeatedly got the giggles as they talked about weeing on jellyfish stings, finding Gok a granddad, and Gok falling in love with chef Phil Vickery.

Not all the replacement presenters have been so popular.

Last week Michael Ball and Sara Cox divided cheeky viewers.

The reason? Nothing to do with their presenting skills, it was all down to their surnames.

One Smart Alec commented on Twitter: “Um were this pairing intentional? Ball and cox or cox and ball.”

Another said: “I never thought I would see the day when Cox and Ball would present.”
