Despite the cheery end to the programme, viewers were heartbroken over their departure.


On Twitter, one said: “Absolutely heartbroken that there is no @EamonnHolmes and @RuthieeL #ThisMorning.”

Another added: “Thank you @RuthieeL and @EamonnHolmes for summer. I have enjoyed all the banter, fashion, cookery, laughter and wit from you both.”

A third tweeted: “@EamonnHolmes and @RuthieeL the best morning host ever. Will miss your honest and truthful comments and all the giggles. They should keep you on all year!”

A fourth shared: “Fabulous 7 weeks with Eamonn and Ruth. Proper presenting and great interviewing skills whilst making us viewers laugh. Grant us all an early xmas wish & leave them on PERMANENTLY.”

They should keep you on all year!

Meanwhile, others threatened to boycott the show completely.

They tweeted: “Incredibly short sighted and stupid of ITV to get rid of Eamonn and Ruth. I’m afraid I won’t be watching now, the pair had me hooked over the summer weeks.”

A second agreed: “My telly will certainly be off when Holly & Phil come back next week #ThisMorning.”

Another raged: “Well that’s me turning off until you’re back @EamonnHolmes & @RuthieeL. Insane, do the producers never actually watch their own shows?”
