Ruth Langsford speaks out on returning to This Morning after walking away from show

Ruth Langsford speaks out on returning to This Morning after walking away from show

Ruth and Eamonn spent 15 years on the sofa together

Ruth Langsford has spoken out about a return to This Morning after walking away from the show a few years back.

Langsford, 63, used to host the long-running daytime show alongside husband Eamonn Holmes, but they walked away from the gig in 2020 after 15 years on the sofa.

As Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond took their place, ITV confirmed that Langsford would continue to work with the channel, but on other series.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror if there was a reason for the departure, Holmes said: “It’s never been mentioned to me. If that was the case, at least that would be a reason.

"And if Dame EasyJet [ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall, ex-chief exec of EasyJet] had wanted an apology or some sort of explanation, fine. But she never picked up the phone and asked me.

“I’ve never had any communication with Dame Carolyn McCall. And I still stand by those remarks because not once did I say 5G spreads coronavirus. I said that as reporters, we should always question the narrative.

The couple hosted alongside one another for more than a decade.

"And that has never been more obvious than under the No 10 regime that has existed from then and beyond.”

After Phillip Schofield and, later, Holly Willoughby left This Morning last year, fans of the show have naturally been curious to see who would be stepping in to replace their permanent roles.

While Holmes now has a new programme on GB News, Langsford has opened up about whether or not she’d consider returning.

Speaking to Hello!, she explained: “I think that ship has sailed. Listen, never say never. I adore that show and it was a dream to work on it.

Ruth Langsford still works with ITV on Loose Women.

“I worked on it before Eamonn, actually people forget that. I say to him: ‘I took you to work, don’t forget!’”

In another interview with Woman&Home back in October, Langsford said she was always open to doing a short stint on the show.

“If they asked me, I would certainly consider it,” she said.

“I did a week with Rylan last year and I wasn’t torn because of Eamonn’s situation [turning his back on ITV]. Eamonn has left ITV, it’s done and dusted.

“He’s got another job, which he loves. Also, I don’t have to ask Eamonn’s permission to do anything, or for him me, so if ITV said, ‘Would you come and do a week on This Morning?’ and if I was free and it was with the right person, I probably would do it.”
