No, there is no replacement. Andrew and Ben will do it between them.


If thats so I will not be watching GMTV, they have to be the worst presenters there. Eamonn is fantasic at GMTV, but a replacement should come elsewhere.

Without Eammon, GMTV will just be like bloody BBC Breakfast. More boring than about 10 people sitting inside a large house and being ease dropped by the people of Channel 4...

It will be interesting to see what happens to the titles when he leaves. Will they just cut him out or will they create a new sequence?

Just out of interest. Eamon and Fiona are the main anchor presenters on GMTV, But, when you look at it they actually do the least hours out of anybody there. They only work a maximum of 3 days a week. They have all school holidays off and not forgetting their massive summer holiday. Would i be right in saying that Kate & Andrew/Ben actually do more hours over the year?

They almost cut him out every morning anyway. They run the titles earlier than the music so there is time for Penny to do her thing

A sack of spuds to replace him, and a sqwarking parrot wearing a blonde wig to replace her.


Yes, what is that programme all about? They have a very odd way of presentation and a real mish-mash of news and features, all presented in a very unusual way. Love the way the presenters keep swapping sides on the sofa during the break. Hate the way they ignore most of the heavy news stories and concentrate on the showbiz crap, is anybody really interested if the red carpet was out last night for Ewan MacGragor at his latest film premiere at Leicester Square?
And please, somebody push Fiona off the sofa!

People do care, that's why GMTV gets nearly 6 million viewers daily. They get nearly three times the amount Breakfast does.

To be honest, Breakfast is more of a mish-mash. They can't quite work out if they are going for the light 'sofa, Good Morning' approach or the hard hitting news approach.

They should look around the regions at some of the possible replacements for Eammon. After all - he began his career at Ulster Television in Belfast. What about Glen Thompsett who presents for Meridian South East (he's got loads of telly experience) or Peter Rowell at HTV (ITV West News) or what about Andy Craig (Meridian News West)

You are ALL so rude, alright, not all of you, just some that have said Eammon was boring and dull. I think that they are so funny in the mornings, rather than the formal BBC Breakfast format. Which would you prefer? I know what I'd go for.

God NO!!! Ben Shepherd is awful! He's like a spoilt little boy gushing over all the guests- and can't present for toffee!

This could be connected to a new presenter from Jono Coleman from Heart 106.2 soon to be LBC 97.3 and Celebrity Fit Club.

'JONO IS ALSO IN TALKS WITH A BREAKFAST TV SHOW '

Could this be the new presenter

Don't think so - I heard Jono was going to be a new 'roving reporter' for GMTV.
