Why are Eamonn and Ruth on This Morning today?

FANS of This Morning are wondering why Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield aren't fronting the show.

Instead viewers are being treated to ITV legends, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

Why are Eamonn and Ruth presenting This Morning?

This Morning veterans Eamonn and Ruth are set to host the ITV show throughout the summer of 2021.

They kicked off their stint on July 12, 2021, and will continue until August 27, 2021.

As they do every year, Holly and Phil have taken the summer holidays off.

They are due to return on August 31, 2021 – the day after the summer bank holiday.

Where are Holly and Phil?

Holly and Phil are enjoying the summer off.

They often take a trip away together and post pictures on Instagram for This Morning fans to see.

The pair will be enjoying some time with their family and friends

Do Holly and Phil always take the summer off?

The pair always take the summer holidays off, as they have children.

Phil's kids are all grown up now – Ruby, 25, and Molly, 28 – but he still takes off the same time as his co-presenter.

However, Holly's kids – Harry, 12, Belle, 10 and Harry, 6 – are still young so she always takes the school holidays off to spend time with them.

Fellow ITV hosts Susanna Reid and Lorraine Kelly also do the same.

Who else will be presenting This Morning while Holly and Phil are off?

It will just be Eamonn and Ruth hosting This Morning over the summer, and no other guest presenters.

This is the first time the couple will be fronting the show for five days a week.

You can catch them every Monday to Friday from 10am on ITV.
