Eamonn Holmes slams Davina McCall’s new reality dating show My Mum, Your Dad

Eamonn Holmes slams Davina McCall’s new reality dating show My Mum, Your Dad

Eammon Holmes didn't hold back when he shared his thoughts on David McCall's new dating show, hailed as a 'middle-aged Love Island'

Eamonn Holmes has shared his thoughts on new ITV dating show My Mum, You Dad.

Holmes moved over from ITV to GB News last year after after co-hosting This Morning alongside his wife Ruth Langsford for 15 years, and it seems that he doesn't have a lot of love for his former employer.

Yesterday, (Monday 11 September,) marked the first episode of My Mum, Your Dad - hosted by Davina McCall - and, ahead of its release, Holmes discussed the new show with his co-stars on the GB News breakfast show.

Christopher Biggins, who was a guest on the show, was the first to weigh in on the matter.

"What will they think of next?" he questioned.

"They've got no bright ideas these television people."

While Isabel Webster hailed the programme as a 'good idea', adding: "Why does it only have to be young and beautiful [people]?", Holmes went on to agree with Biggins.

He said: "I agree with you. ITV are the worst.

"If it’s not Ant and Dec, or it’s not Simon Cowell, or it’s not Bradley Walsh on The Chase, they’ve got no other ideas."

Biggins echoed in agreement: "No other ideas!"

Tyla has contacted ITV for comment.

But despite Biggins and Holmes' dislike of the show's concept, many viewers love it.

"Not a Love Island fan but #MyMumYourDad is so different and so much better it's so sweet and cute," said one person.

"I’m sorry but this programme is amazing! Really excited to see how this progresses.

"THIS is what we want- REAL PEOPLE, REAL EMOTION, not people chasing brand deals and followers #MyMumYourDad," penned another.

A third gushed after the episode had finished: "That was SO good. Tears are tripping me and I want to go on it next season."

"This is SO much better than Love Island sh*t. Fascinating!" someone else said.

While My Mum, Your Dad has been compared to Love Island, there is one stark difference - there are no cameras in the bedrooms.

However, viewers love the show.

Speaking to Tyla, host McCall revealed: "There are no cameras in the bedrooms and I think it’s important to point out that it’s different in that way [to Love Island] - for me, personally speaking, I'd rather watch the hint of love, a hint of something coming, ‘Should I? Shouldn’t I?’ a moment of tenderness, something amazing - that’s so exciting that like jumping into bed with each other [and] shagging it’s sort of like, once you’ve seen it once it doesn’t mean anything."

She added: “But yes, there are moments when the kids have got cushions in front of their faces and they’re curled up.

"But it could be over something quite small and intimate, because they’ve never seen their parents in a date situation."

My Mum, Your Dad continues tonight at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
