Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford are set to return to This Morning, after being axed from their Friday hosting slot earlier this year.

The TV husband and wife, both 61, will host the ITV daytime show for one week over the Easter holidays, which will delight fans who have shared how much they miss the pair.

Ruth, who recently revealed she was sexually assaulted age 11, used to regularly present the show on Fridays as well as Mondays to Fridays during the school holidays.

The couple were then replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, who now host Friday’s stints of This Morning, in a scheduling shakeup earlier this year.

But, fans will be delighted as the pair are returning to host the daytime show again from Monday 5 April for a week.

The news was confirmed by Eamonn, who recently opened up on his chronic back pain, as he posted an optimistic message on Twitter.

Eamonn told his fans on the social media platform: “So here we go..A New day;a new week .Deep breath.

“Believe u r closer to that light at the end of the tunnel . Closer to New beginnings & in some way better versions of ourselves. Not that there's probably anything wrong with your existing version . but it's nice to have goals”. [sic]

A fan then asked: “Are u and Ruth on this morning next week and the one after?”

To which Eamonn replied: “Only the 1 week from April 5th this year but really looking forward to it.”

Fans then shared their excitement for Eamonn and wife Ruth’s return as the follower who initially asked about the couple’s comeback wrote: “Ah ok, thanks Eamonn! Will look forward to it.”

Meanwhile, another rejoiced: “Look forward to seeing you both then xxx”.

And a third said: “Have my calendar marked Eamonn and I can hardly wait to see you and Ruth back on TV!!”

The pair were last seen on This Morning in February, where viewers called for Eamonn and Loose Women star Ruth to return to the famous sofa for good.

One tweeted: “@thismorning much prefer @RuthieeL and @EamonnHolmes than their replacements! Bring them back on a Friday!!”

And another said: “#ThisMorning I’ve got to admit Alison and Dermott have been ok today! But still want Eamonn and Ruth”.
