There have been long-standing rumours of unrest behind-the-scenes at This Morning and even claims of an ITV 'civil war' among presenters  

Mail online released an emotional report yesterday concerning two screen stars who are backing their audience. According to the report: 

Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford fought back tears during their final Friday show on This Morning, after being axed from the slot. 

It was revealed on 30 November that the presenters, both 60, who fill in for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on Fridays, had been cut from their weekly slot to be replaced with Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary.

The duo appeared on screens on Friday for their last show, during which Eamonn made a dig about bosses 'getting rid' of them during a chat about discounted trees, before the pair both grew emotional while saying goodbye. 

 Ruth swiftly shot down the comment and continued the show, while Eamonn took to Instagram to mark their final day with an emotional post, in which he penned: 'Thanks for the memories, hope we made some for you too.'

During their sign off, Eamonn said: 'You won’t be watching us anymore on a Friday, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary will be here on Fridays here on in....

'Please we would ask you to be as nice and lovely to them, friends of ours as they are, we're very close to Alison and she has been to us for the past 15 years...

'We appreciate all of the love you have sent to us today, we send it all back to you, have a very merry Christmas, it’s been lovely having you and I think we will see everybody again.'

Ruth added: 'We will see everybody again in February, you've haven’t got rid of us, we're back for the half term. So it's a tricky year for everybody and we hope we helped you a little bit and thank you, have a merry Christmas see you in February'.
