The news of the This Morning line-up changes were announced in November last year.

While it was reported at the time Eamonn was "disappointed" by the changes, the couple offered words of support for Alison and Dermot.

Eamonn posted on Twitter at the time: "It’s a changing of the guard on Fridays from January. We hope you make Alison and Dermot as welcome as you’ve made us over the years. Have a ball you two! It’s not Goodbye from us, it’s simply Au Revoir until the next half term."
