Rochelle Humes joined Eammon Holmes for This Morning today instead of Ruth Langsford, so where is she?

Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford usually present This Morning on a Friday as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield take the day off.

However, on this week's Friday show, Ruth was a no-show as Rochelle Humes filled in for her.

As Rochelle and Eamonn introduced the show, Eamonn explained that Ruth has "other things to do today".

Introducing the show, he said: "Welcome to This Morning, lots of you thinking Ruth looks really well today but no-"

However, Rochelle then interrupted him, jokingly adding: "Every time you say the same thing and I tell you not to do that!"

He went on to explain: "Ruthie's got other things to do today but she can't be here today but Rochelle and I are pairing up!"
