Eamonn Holmes: ‘Maybe it’s time to go back’
Eamonn quote-tweeted an account that specialises in classic TV clips from yesteryear.
It showed a clip from five years ago when Eamonn was host of Sky News’ Sunrise show.
He also hosted GMTV in the mid-2000s.
In among the clips of Eamonn throughout his time on the show was one from his final show five years ago.
Eamonn then tweeted: “Just watched this… news can be so addictive.
“Maybe it’s time to go back?
“Thanks for memories @tvlive and @SkyNews.”
How did viewers react to the idea?
It wasn’t long until the idea of Eamonn making a return to breakfast TV lit a fire under fans.
One replied: “Welcome you back on ANY news channel I can get on Freeview, there is no competition Eamonn…”
Another wrote: “Please go back, really miss you at Sky News.”
A third pleaded: “YES please go back on morning TV… no-one worth watching anymore!”
Finally, another said: “I would love to see you back on breakfast tv. I’m not enjoying any of the shows right now.”
What else do fans want Eamonn back on?
It’s not just breakfast TV that fans are pleading for Eamonn to come back on.
This Morning viewers pleaded for Eamonn and wife Ruth Langsford to return to Friday morning presenting duties.
The married couple were ditched in favour of Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond earlier this year.
After last Friday’s show (October 8) viewers pleaded with ITV to reinstate them.
“Bring back Eamonn and Ruth!” one wrote.
“I thought I’d give This Morning another go after the brilliant summer but it’s just as bad if not worse!”
