Eamonn Holmes hints at his ITV daytime feud as he makes cryptic comment

Eamonn Holmes appeared to double down on his previous feuds while presenting GB News on Wednesday.

Addressing some of his past arguments, the 63-year-old broadcaster revealed that there are people who are “dead to me” as he assured that it’s “good not to like people”.

It comes as the presenter has made no secret of his feelings towards ITV and his former This Morning co-stars Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby after he and his wife Ruth Langsford were dropped from the morning show.

The presenter’s co-host Isabel Webster chatted about her ex Gerard Pique on Shakira’s new “revenge track” and claimed Eamonn has made amends with everyone he’s ever had a fight with.

She said to him: “You talk a good game about it. You do, you talk a good game about it, but actually, with all the people in your life that you’ve had ding dongs with in the past, you’re on good terms now, when I think about it.

And while the Belfast native admitted he’s willing to “forgive and forget” on some occasions, there are others of which he won’t go any further.

Recalling his feud with Anthea Turner, which he presented to GMTV from 1994 to 1996, Eamonn admitted they buried the hatchet.

“Like Anthea Turner, I’m willing to forgive, forget,” said Eamonn, as Isobel agreed, “Yeah, see, I think you’re pretty good at getting over arguments.”

But the presenter didn’t entirely agree, continuing: “No, but there are other people who are dead to me who have names I can’t reveal.”

‘Let’s not go there,’ Isobel said as she ended the call.

But on a final note, he added: “That’s the thing, I think when you cross that… well, there are bad people.

“Let’s face it, there are bad people, there they are. And in the fight against good and evil – which I’m good at – um, yeah, the only enemy you want is a vanquished enemy.

Although Eamonn did not reveal who he was referring to during the newscast, he has detailed his conflict with ITV on numerous occasions over the past year.

He and his wife Ruth hosted the Friday slot on This Morning for 14 years before being replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary in 2021.

And last year he lashed out at the show, claiming he wasn’t “treated with respect.”

In an interview with The Guardian over the weekend, he branded the channel “smart” and accused it of hypocrisy over its push for diversity.

Eamonn said: “I joined GB News because options have dried up. The ‘wrong age’, at the ‘wrong stage’ – at some point it becomes very difficult to get a job.

“It was obvious I stopped ticking the boxes for ITV and wasn’t treated with respect there.

“It was a matter of self-esteem. You’re like, “Nah, I’m out of here, bye!” So that’s it. And nothing has changed: I play what I’m doing.’

In another dig at ITV, Eamonn added GB News had been “very welcoming” and it was “nice to be appreciated”.

While last year he continued to meet the show’s hosts Holly and Phil during their queuing scandal.

The duo have been accused of jumping the queue at Westminster Hall in London last week while tens of thousands of mourners waited patiently for 12 straight hours to pay their respects to Her Majesty.

And Eamonn made no secret of the fact that he didn’t believe his former colleagues and said they screwed it up.

Speaking to presenter Clare Muldoon, Eamonn said: “I’ll tell you what’s strategic. According to The Sun, why is Holly struggling to keep her job but Mr Phillip isn’t?

Clare replied, “Who knows? Twitter last night said she doesn’t want to quit her job at This Morning.

“Who wouldn’t want to give up £600,000 a year and everything else that comes with it? I think the stamp is very damaged. There has to be a top-down shift this morning.’

Referring to a photo of Holly wearing a mask at Westminster Hall, Clare asked: “Why was she wearing a mask? Is she allergic to the public?’

Eamonn replied, “No, she does. “Holly is crying,” but Holly is always crying. But wearing a mask — I think it’s pretty scary, anti-germ.”
