‘Let’s get it straight, they left me!' Eamonn Holmes slams ITV and boycotts This Morning

Eamonn Holmes, 62, has doubled down on his claims ITV lied about his exit from This Morning.The presenter, who now works for GB News, has revealed he’s also no longer able to watch his old show as it would be “too sensitive” for him. Six months ago, Eamonn left This Morning after regularly hosting the daytime TV show for 15 years. Eamonn and his wife Ruth Langsford, who was also his presenting partner, were replaced in their regular Friday slot by Alison Hamonnd and Dermot O’Leary during lockdown. When he was asked whether he still watches This Morning in a recent interview, Eamonn revealed he doesn’t tune in any more.According to the journalist, fans often approach him in the street to ask why he and Ruth are not still presenting the show. Asked if he still ever flicks across to This Morning, Eamonn confirmed: “It would be too... sensitive. “I mean, I spend every day going out on the street and people saying, ‘Why are you and Ruth not on any more?’” he told the Mirror.The presenter also claimed he was frustrated at not being informed about why he was allegedly let go from ITV, insisting that he did not quit the broadcaster to work at GB News.“I wish somebody would show me the email or the letter or that I was sent to say, ‘Eamonn, this is why this is coming to an end’,” he explained. “But to tell lies, that I left them to go to GB News...I didn’t – they left me.

But they did."There was no let up and no respite," he exclaimed.He also stated that the complication of staff taking sick leave due to being diagnosed with Covid exacerbated their struggle.He urged the world not to "rely on the Westminster mouthpieces for the facts", and to speak to people within the industry instead.Eamonn felt deflated not to have been at the heart of the action when the Platinum Jubilee kicked off, as he was left

'Could have cost us our jobs' Eamonn Holmes reflects on 'deadly serious' feud with co-star
Eamonn Holmes recalled a feud with Anthea Turner which saw him splashed across the headlines and fearing that both might lose their careers.The former This Morning star revealed all in a recent interview."I was on the front pages of the papers because of a falling-out I had with Anthea Turner - I called her 'Princess Tippy Toes'," Eamonn admitted."It’s laughable now, but at the time it was deadly serious for both of us."It could have cost both of us our jobs, but the station probably secretly relished the publicity," he told The Telegraph.He added that he and Anthea quickly made up and are now good friends - but that didn't happen before the war of words had descended into a scandal.The pair first came to blows while they were hosting GMTV together for two years in the mid 1990s.Anthea believed she had been the victim of sexist stereotypes for being too "ambitious" - a trait she claimed men would never be accused of in a derogatory way."If I said [I was ambitious], I was made out to be a ruthless person who would walk over anybody to get where I wanted," she stated to The Sun."It would be said that I was hormonal, or I was stamping my feet."She added: "Yet if [a man is] ambitious, we think, 'What a guy'."You’d never hear anyone say that about Eamonn or Phillip Schofield.
