Belfast's Eamonn Holmes debuts on Good Morning Britain

By Jackie Bell

Belfast presenter Eamonn Holmes made his debut on Good Morning Britain on Monday - filling in for regular hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

During the live broadcast, Holmes was reunited with his Sky News Sunrise co-hosts Kate Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins, who he presented alongside for 11 years.

He told the pair how his wife and fellow presenter, Ruth Langsford, was 'not happy' with his alarm going off in the early hours of the morning.

The 57-year-old joked: “She was not pleased. I think there will be separate sleeping arrangements brought in.”

The popular star, who hosted GMTV for 12 years, will present the show until Thursday, and he has become very popular with the programme's viewers.

Many have called for the Belfast man to replace the controversial Piers Morgan on a more permanent basis.

Speaking after the show, Holmes said: "Thank you for putting up with me - it may not have gone quickly if you were a viewer, but for me it went very, very quickly!"

It will be a very busy working week for the TV presenter, as he will also be hosting daytime show This Morning with his wife while regular presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby enjoy their Easter break.
