Ruth Langsford: Alison Hammond reaches out amid claims she replaced host on This Morning

“It’s a real shame,” they added, while also questioning if the couple were not “young or cool enough” to present the daytime show anymore.

“Ruth and Eamonn are both telly legends – they’ve done it all, so it seems unfair.” previously contacted representatives for ITV, Ruth, and Eamonn for comment.

They went on to insist that in spite of the reports, Ruth and Eamonn “are the favourites” behind-the-scenes.

“If you speak to any of the staff at This Morning, they’ll tell you Ruth and Eamonn are the favourites,” they shared.

“They’re so popular with everyone – the crew are happiest when Eamonn and Ruth are in.”

Earlier this month, Alison, who is a regular presenter on the show, was given the opportunity to guest edit the show and present alongside Dermot.
