As he and his wife prepared to take over hosting duties on This Morning on Thursday, Eamonn Holmes took to Instagram to share some hilarious snapshots taken during the couple's early days in journalism. Eamonn uploaded a montage photo, featuring four photos – two of himself and two of Ruth Langsford – captured when they were first starting out in their careers. He wrote: "The News today is… @RuthieeL and Me hosting @thismorning for the rest of the week. Hope you can tune in." Wife Ruth then shared his post, writing alongside: "Look what @eamonnholmes just posted! We didn't know each other then but we were both working in News… him in Belfast, me in Plymouth. My perm was very trendy back then… honest! 35 years later and you can catch us on @thismorning today & tomorrow #itv 10.30am X."
