Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have confirmed who is going to be replacing them during their two-month break from This Morning.

The pair are taking the rest of the summer off to spend time with their familes, and they’ve revealed Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford are taking over.

Holly and Phil made a special appearance on today’s show even though they don’t normally work Fridays to say goodbye.

At the start of the show, they broke the news about their time off, with Phil saying: “It’s out last show before we go on our summer break… [Holly’s] head’s already on a lounger somewhere.”

Holly then added: “But don’t worry Eamonn and Ruth will be be here to take you right through until September.”

The husband-and-wife duo were the top pick for the job as they usually fill in for Holly and Phil on Fridays.

They will now take on the Monday to Thursday shows while the pair are off, with another presenting duo taking over on Fridays.

This year producers might draft in Rochelle Humes and Mark Wright to take on more of the presenting duties after a successful trial run last week.
