Eamonn Holmes is reportedly leaving This Morning after 15 years, as he’s ‘set to join’ GB News. 

It’s believed that the TV presenter has decided to join the news channel, which was set up last year, after he and his co-host, wife Ruth Langsford, were booted from their regular Friday slot on the ITV programme.

A source told the Mirror: “Eamonn’s move to GB News marks the end of an era. 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.”

Holmes’ exit has raised many questions about what will happen with his wife and how it will affect her role in the programme.

GB News was originally launched by journalist Andrew Neil, who has now resigned, as he wanted to ‘champion balanced debate’.

At the time of its launch, Holmes said he hoped the channel would do well, adding that TV is now a ‘constant woke agenda’.

He commented: “We need a shake-up on the news front. I have huge respect for TV news but this is a reminder, news is not just Westminster or a constant woke agenda.”

This isn’t the first time that the 61-year-old has shared his concerns over the ‘woke’ brigade.

Earlier this year, the star sat down with the Daily Star and admitted he’s constantly worried about coming off as ‘offensive’.

He told the publication: “It’s a minefield, it’s a total worry all the time.

“I don’t wake up in the morning and say, ‘I’m going to say something offensive to somebody’.

“I know I’m the most tolerant, caring, open-minded person but that doesn’t stop me saying that something is wrong or right, or having a joke.

“But there are people who wake up wanting to be offended and they literally want you sacked.”
