Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes to make This Morning comeback after being axed

The much-loved duo of Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes are coming back to This Morning, it has been revealed.

The couple will return to our screens for seven weeks this summer, and fans are thrilled.

It comes after they were replaced by Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond back in November.

They lost their weekly slot, but are returning to host for seven weeks in July when Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby take their summer break.

Ruth and Eamonn, both 61, are excited about the stint, with Ruth telling OK! magazine: 'We'll be doing seven weeks from July. I'm looking forward to it.'

They have filled in occasionally since, but were nowhere to be seen in half term.

One fan tweeted: “The BEST news in the last few months.”

“This is what the fans wanted” and “About time!” added viewers.

Poor Eamonn has been recovering after he suffered three slipped discs.

He told fans last month that he’s doing 'baby exercises' to rebuild nerve endings in his leg.

He wrote on Twitter: 'Working on my balance and leg weakness. Have to build nerve ends back in my Right leg- but going well."

" I was doing almost baby exercises today …. in fact so easy did they look that I thought I would give you an insight and a laugh. will edit tonight and post tomorrow (sic)' he teased fans.

Back in November, Eamonn and Ruth shared an identical statement about their replacement: 'It's a changing of the guard on Fridays from January. We hope you make Alison and Dermot as welcome as you've made us over the years.

'Have a Ball you two!… 'It's not Goodbye from us, it's simply Au Revoir until the next half term.'

Following the news, Alison said in a statement: 'I never dreamt that when I first joined This Morning – initially for a few months – that I would still be there 19 years later.
