This Morning viewers were left fuming as Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were replaced as hosts during today’s Christmas panto.
The married pair, who are known to present the Friday edition of the ITV show, were replaced by co-stars Holly Willougby and Phillip Schofield.
But it’s all for the fun of Christmas, as Holly and Phil took part in the festive pantomime.
This Morning panto: Where are Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford?
Instead, Holly and Phillip put on their very own panto to help cheer up the nation.
The hosts were also joined by Sheridan Smith, Joanna Lumley and Christopher Biggins.
Meanwhile, Eamonn and Ruth appeared as Father Christmas and Mrs Claus.
However, fans weren’t too pleased as Eamonn and Ruth were missing from their usual spot.
What did This Morning viewers say?
One tweeted: “What a load of rubbish – where are Ruth and Eamonn – fancy having to put up with this every Friday!!”
A second said: “Bring back Ruth and Eamonn. Fridays are not the same without them. The rabble that’s on today is unacceptable. I only watch Fridays for them. The others are too vain. Absolute rubbish.”
A third added: “I can’t believe they got rid of Eamonn and Ruth for this!!!”
A fourth shared: “It’s Friday, why aren’t Ruth and Eamonn on @thismorning for the Xmas panto?”
Another complained: “Where’s Eamonn and Ruth? Turned off couldn’t watch that unprofessional shambles!”
Meanwhile, others were thrilled by the festive pantomime.
@thismorning I can’t believe they rid of Eamonn & Ruth for this!!!
