Eamonn Holmes, 62, has doubled down on his claims ITV lied about his exit from This Morning.The presenter, who now works for GB News, has revealed he’s also no longer able to watch his old show as it would be “too sensitive” for him. Six months ago, Eamonn left This Morning after regularly hosting the daytime TV show for 15 years.

When he was asked whether he still watches This Morning in a recent interview, Eamonn revealed he doesn’t tune in any more.According to the journalist, fans often approach him in the street to ask why he and Ruth are not still presenting the show. Asked if he still ever flicks across to This Morning, Eamonn confirmed: “It would be too... sensitive. “I mean, I spend every day going out on the street and people saying, ‘Why are you and Ruth not on any more?’” he told the Mirror.The presenter also claimed he was frustrated at not being informed about why he was allegedly let go from ITV, insisting that he did not quit the broadcaster to work at GB News.“I wish somebody would show me the email or the letter or that I was sent to say, ‘Eamonn, this is why this is coming to an end’,” he explained. “But to tell lies, that I left them to go to GB News...I didn’t – they left me.
