Many fans assumed that Ruth Langsford would follow suit after Eamonn Holmes’ announcement earlier this month that he would be leaving the ITV programme. But in her latest Instagram Story post on Thursday, the 61-year-old made it clear that she was looking forward to getting to work with her This Morning team again. 

Miss doing this SO much! We WILL be back!

Ruth reposted a throwback video of the crew dancing up a storm as they wrapped up production for the day. 

Fellow television presenter Jackie Kabler captioned the clip, writing: “March 2019 – Remember when we could dance together in the studio after a show?”

In Ruth’s post, she added: “Miss doing this SO much! 

“We WILL be back!”

Ruth began presenting This Morning in 2000 before being paired with Eamonn for a co-presenting gig as a duo from 2005.

But with her husband now fronting his own GB News show – which premieres January 4 – fans have been eager to know where this would leave Ruth.

The Do The Right Thing star seemingly also appeared to dispel rumours claiming she was “unlikely to remain” at the ITV morning show without her husband being there.

“Eamonn’s move to GB News marks the end of an era,” a source told the Mirror last month.

“He’ll be missed by many ITV viewers but, the truth is, this job offer probably came at just the right moment for both him and ITV. All good things come to an end.’

The source added that while Ruth will allegedly bid farewell to the This Morning team soon, she will continue working as a panellist on Loose Women.

In contrast to those claims, ITV released a statement confirming that Ruth was staying with the broadcaster, adding that they looked forward to extending their two-decade-long relationship with the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 contestant.

“We would like to wish Eamonn all of the very best in his new role,” ITV said.

“As a duo, Eamonn and Ruth have been part of the This Morning presenting team for the last 15 years, and we thank Eamonn for all of his hard work and contribution to the show.

“Ruth remains an important part of ITV Daytime both as a continuing member of the This Morning family and as an anchor presenter on Loose Women.”

Since its launch earlier this year, GB News has generated plenty of headlines — most of which have seemingly been for the wrong reasons. 

In September, the news channel had reportedly lost 60 per cent of viewers since launch. Viewing figures were said to have decreased from 157,000 viewers to an average of 21,000 in a matter of months. 

The shocking figures were revealed after Andrew Neil stepped down as the chair of GB News. 

The 72-year-old branded the company a “disaster”, which almost pushed him “close to a breakdown” following endless technical difficulties and burnt bridges with colleagues.

During his appearance on Question Time, the former BBC journalist said: “It just got worse and worse. At one stage, we were waiting to go on air and the whole system went down. 

“It had to be rebooted and we only managed it with 15 seconds to spare.”

“That stress was just huge.”
