Eamonn Holmes opens up on 'worry' over new GB News role 'Don't know if I could do it'


TV presenter Eamonn Holmes made an appearance on Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh, celebrating four decades in broadcasting. Earlier in the year, the 62-year-old made his debut along with co-host Isabel Webster for a new breakfast programme on GB News. Speaking about his tenure with the news channel, he told ITV host Alan Titchmarsh about a concern he had in regards to his new schedule. 

He told ITV viewers: “It’s a great privilege being able to wake people up with something they didn’t know the night before. 

“I’ve always thought that it’s a great privilege and these days, you know, when viewing habits change, what people watch the way they watch it, there’s just something within that excites me.”

The TV veteran did reveal one concern he shared in regards to his breakfast show. Eamonn admitted: “I was worried about the hours again.

He asked himself: “Could you actually do them? Well, we’ll see.”

“You know, getting that alarm clock at three in the morning, it’s not the middle of the night.”

“I’m going to exercise during the day, and I’m going to do all these things.” 

After 15 years on This Morning, which he hosted alongside his wife Ruth Langsford, the OBE decided to step down from the daytime show.

The news comes after Eamonn and his wife Ruth were dropped from their usual Friday slot and replaced by Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond.

Eamonn moved to GB News for his new breakfast show while Ruth remained at ITV.

The presenter continues to present Loose Women alongside Charlene White, Christine Lampard and Kaye Adams. 

During his first appearance, Eamonn told audiences: “I’m having some lovely messages from people all around the country who are looking forward to whatever we’re going to do differently. 

“Hopefully, we are going to do lots of things differently.

He continued: “We’re going to do news, but we’re going to do news with views.
