But Eamonn said her 55-year-old ITV day colleague – who co-hosted with Susanna Reid – could easily walk away from the high-level concert.
He said, “He came over there and shook him.
“He was the right person in the right place at the right time.
“And so far so good.
“But the problem with Piers, and probably why a lot of people are watching it, is that you don’t know how long it will last, you don’t know how long it will last.
“You don’t know when he will have enough or whatever. ”

Eamonn, 60, also praised BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker.
He told journalist Rodney Edwards on the Human Nature podcast: “I’m somewhere between Dan and Piers. “
