‘What about Eamonn and Ruth?’

Meanwhile, others questioned why Eamonn and Ruth have been replaced.

One tweeted: “I thought Eamonn and Ruth were doing the holidays? So why are Alison and Dermot presenting all next week? #ThisMorning.”

I’m going to be in a right huff all week

Another wrote: “It’s my week off too, I don’t want to watch Dermot and Alison!! Fuming – I’m going to be in a right huff all week… I was looking forward to seeing Eamonn and Ruth again.”

A third said: “Did they just say Alison and Dermot ALL next week? What about @EamonnHolmes and @RuthieeL?!”

A fourth pointed out: “@thismorning originally stated @EamonnHolmes & @RuthieeL would be covering all school holidays. Just seen announced it will be Dermot & Alison next week, no disrespect to them but this is so disappointing #ThisMorning.”

“Why are Alison and Dermot on next week? What happened to Eamonn and Ruth doing the holiday cover,” a fifth said, adding: “Switch off for me all next week then.”

But it appears one viewer was looking forward to Alison and Dermot on the show.
