Eamonn Holmes walks off Good Morning Britain during coughing fit

The TV presenter was in the middle of an interview with Julian Clary.

Eamonn Holmes has walked off the set of Good Morning Britain after suffering a coughing fit.

The presenter was interviewing Julian Clary with co-host Kate Garraway in the last segment of the show when he was forced to apologise for the noise he was making.

He said: “I’m sorry I’ve got one of these air conditioned coughs.”

He added: “I think what I might do is just leave and let you guys (carry on).”

Garraway had earlier paused during the interview to ask Holmes: “Are you alright, are you with us?” before Clary joked: “I’m trying to talk while Eamonn is coughing away!”

As he left the set Garraway told him: “Come back, come back and join us,” as Clary added: “Will he ever be seen again?”

Garraway later joked to the guest: “That could be it. Are you the man to finish off Eamonn Holmes, Julian, with a strange allergic reaction?”

Holmes did not return to the set before the end of the broadcast.

Earlier in the show Holmes presented Garraway with a bag of grooming goodies, just a day after she discovered a roller in her hair while live on air.

Garraway was opening the show when she became distracted and pulled out a large roller from the back of her head before bursting out laughing and saying: “I’ve just discovered I’ve still got the roller in my hair! I wondered what was itching me.

“They’ve left a roller in! Genuinely blushing.”
