"Just got sent this by my lovely friend Rochelle. That's when a picture is worth a thousand words," he wrote alongside the snap, which was taken in May last year, when Rochelle covered for Ruth.

Soon after, the father-of-four, who has reportedly been axed alongside wife Ruth Langsford from Friday's slot on the popular ITV show, was inundated with messages of support.

"Friday was the only day I was interested in watching This Morning," one wrote, whilst another fan said: "Shocking!! Bad move by This Morning."

"My husband & I just signed a petition for you & Ruth," added a third, whilst a fourth follower remarked: "You and Ruth should have your own morning show (on a different channel) you'd definitely get a large audience."

News of Eamonn and Ruth's shocking departure news came over the weekend as The Mirror reported they had been dropped in favour of Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary.

According to the paper, the decision was made as it's "time for a change".

The report went on to say that everyone feels for the couple, who are well-liked on the team, but "tough decisions" had to be made.
