Eamomn and Ruth reportedly dropped from This Morning

Reports say they have been replaced by Alison and Dermot

Eamonn and Holly were good. She was also good with Ben Shepherd when Eamonn and Phillip were off.


I always preferred Holly with Ben whenever he filled in for Phillip. Their chemistry just seemed more natural, less forced.

For a couple of years they paired Holly with Ben for one week of the October half term holidays with Phillip presenting with somebody else the following week (due to differences in the half term across the country), it worked well imo, but has since returned to them having the same week off. Ben seemed very natural on This Morning, adept at handling both the seriousness and the silliness.

Ben seems more at home on This Morning than he is on GMB which is the opposite of Eamonn who is very good with hard news but struggles when it comes to a fluffier item.

Today's programme is with Phillip and Alison.
Looks like the mixing up has begun.


A bit strange if it is because of that - Holly seemed quite excited about 'Guess the Gadget' when they trailed the show yesterday. Surely she would've been informed about her sudden day off beforehand?

Yes, but they wouldn't have wanted to say anything yesterday about Alison doing it today because of the storm that would have caused on socials and in the press beforehand. Doing it like they have makes her 'fitting in' be smoother.
Today was obviously her screen test / practice alongside Phillip.

Holly was off today as one of her children was poorly. Alison was asked to cover as she was there for the I'm a Celeb segment anyway.

Stop talking rubbish (Meridian AM). Not for us to speculate as to why but people take unexpected days off work all the time. This isn't them "screen testing" a presenter who has now presented the show multiple times or a last minute decision to kick Holly out instead of Ruth.

Was notable though how much more nervous and restrained Alison was with Phil - she pretty much led the show when hosting was Dermot but seemed to sit back today, though I guess as a last minute fill in she'd had far less prep than for a planned hosting gig.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

OK, makes sense. Thanks for clarifying.

Was this not because she was also guest editor of the show that day?

Davina is hosting with Phil today. Surprised they didn’t go with Alison again if they were I testing to give her a proper screen test for Friday’s

Indeed they promoted Allison filling in yesterday as Holly taking a scheduled day off. No doubt now it’s run into a second day, they may have to explain further to keep the Social Media crowd from speculating.
Nonetheless if Holy’s child is sick and they have to self isolate for a period... will be interesting to see if Allison gets used again or whether they’ll just use Davina and Rochelle.

Davina has done it with Phillip a few times before. She is good.
