Who presented This Morning over the summer?

This Morning has been fronted by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford over the summer.

They have Fridays off so, as a result, Rochelle Humes, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary have all stepping in to fill their shoes.

However, it seems that, like Holly, fans can’t wait for the show to return to its old format with its long-running hosts.
