This Morning bosses have denied excluding Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford from the show.

ITV has shut down any rumors that the couple, who present This Morning every Friday, are being replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

Addressing recent reports, a spokesperson for This Morning told Metro.co.uk: “We have a series of stellar presentations on This Morning in Holly and Phillip and Eamonn and Ruth.

“Any addition to this line up will be announced in due course. ”

While Eamonn and Ruth have yet to comment on the rumors, their former colleague Fern Britton, who left This Morning in 2009, has expressed shock at the allegations.

Fern retweeted a message from The Sun columnist Dan Wooton, who tweeted: “What a terrible treatment to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford by This Morning and ITV.

“They have been absolutely faithful rocks to this spectacle through the turmoil and are loved behind the scenes. Sad to see.

Fern simply captioned the tweet with, “Oh no? “

Fern then retweeted another post from Dan, which explained that his first tweet didn’t mean to take anything away from Alison, whom he described as a “superstar.”

Rumors surfaced after it was reported that Alison, 45, and Dermot, 47, had impressed bosses when they took over reception duties this summer, during the six-week break by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

Former Big Brother contestant Alison has also hosted segments of the show since 2003 and presented her own documentary Back To School earlier this year.

An insider said, “They have real warmth. It’s time for a change and they are perfect.

They added to The Mirror: “Eamonn is quite pissed off and everyone feels for him and Ruth, they are well loved on the team, but sometimes tough decisions have to be made. “

Married couple Ruth and Eamonn first joined This Morning in 2006 and have been running the Friday program and school holidays since then, with Holly, 39, and Phil, 58, performing Monday through Thursday.

Earlier this year, it was rumored that Eamonn and Ruth would be leaving the show, with the Irish star responding to the claims on Twitter.

This morning airs weekdays at 10 a.m. on ITV.
