Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have allegedly been dropped from their This Morning slot on Friday.

According to a report from The Mirror on Saturday, the married presenters, both 60, are said to be ‘furious and upset’ as they will now be replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

A source speaking to the publication said the TV personality, 45, and  X Factor presenter, 47, have ‘real warmth’ and have been seen as perfect replacements for Ruth and Eamonn, who will now present the show for six weeks in the summer.

The insider said of the decision: ‘It’s time for a change and they are perfect.

‘Eamonn is pretty furious and everyone feels for him and Ruth, they are well liked on the team, but sometimes tough decisions have to be made.’

Alison and Dermot have previously worked together on the show, presenting it as a duo whilst Ruth, Eamonn, Holly Willoughy and Phillip Schofield were away during the summer holidays.

Stepping in: The married presenters, both 60, are said to be ‘furious and upset’ as they will now be replaced by Alison and Dermot, who have previously presented the show together

Eamonn and Ruth have presented every Friday’s edition of the show together since 2006, and, in a bold shake-up, the couple will now allegedly take over from main hosts Holly and Phil to present the show during the six week summer period.

Alison is a staunch favourite of fans, and has been a part of the show for many years as a roving reporter and made her presenting debut this summer.

The mother-of-one stepped in to host the show alongside Dermot and Rochelle Humes, and has previously been hailed as a fantastic presenter by fans.
