This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes is a stand-in host on the ITV show alongside his wife Ruth Langsford. The couple have not been on the show since August when they covered for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield over the summer holiday.

While he didn’t name any names, the 61-year-old has revealed that he and Ruth “laugh” at some people who, he claims, don’t understand what they’re doing and just wanted to look good on screens.  

When asked about what the pair joke about off-screen, he spilled: “Our business.

“It’s ridiculous, especially some of the people involved. That often makes us laugh.

“TV is the easiest thing anyone will ever do, made difficult by people who either don’t understand it or want to seem important,” he added to OK! Magazine.

Eamonn and Ruth previously fronted This Morning on Fridays before Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary took over earlier this year.

The presenters gave the pair their blessing at the time amid claims they had quit for good.

In view of his one million followers, he wrote: “It’s a changing of the guard on Fridays from January.

“We hope you make Alison and Dermot as welcome as you’ve made us over the years.”

In a recent interview, Eamonn said he feared losing his job due to cancel culture.

He claimed that live TV shows were “a ­dangerous place” where people could get sacked for saying the wrong thing.

The presenter spilled: “It’s a minefield, it’s a total worry all the time.

“I don’t wake up in the morning and say, ‘I’m going to say something ­offensive to somebody’.”

The broadcaster went on to say that he knew he was a “tolerant, caring and open-minded person” but this didn’t stop him from saying that something is wrong or right, or having a joke.

“But there are people who wake up wanting to be offended and they literally want you sacked,” he added to the Daily Star.

Away from his career, Eamonn has been spending time with his family following the birth of his first granddaughter.

The presenter’s eldest son Declan welcomed baby Emelia with his wife Jenny back in July.

On Sunday, he shared a rare snap of the family at her christening.

He wrote on Instagram: “Emilia, my First Grandchild Christened today.

“Lovely family gathering including adoring parents Declan & Jenny.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
