“Eamonn is pretty furious and everyone feels for him and Ruth, they are well-liked on the team.”
“But sometimes tough decisions have to be made,” an insider told Mirror.co.uk.
The couple won’t be ejected from the This Morning family entirely and will step in for Holly and Phillip when the main presenters take their break during summer.
Alison and Dermot, who have stepped in to present the show in the past, will be taking over from Eamonn and Ruth.
This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10am.
