"Go on Eamonn you will be brilliant xx," wrote one, whilst another added: "Beautiful photo, can't wait to have you back on my TV."

A third remarked: "Your lovely mum. Oh, Eamonn cannot wait."

Eamonn first announced the news earlier in December. "I've admired GB News from the beginning for its clever mix of punchy debate but delivered with warmth and even some fun," he said in an official statement at the time.

"I've spent my career on broadcasting firsts and start-ups, and GB News is one of the most exciting yet. It's just the kind of shake-up the industry needs. To me the greatest honour in journalism is to give a voice and respect to the unheard, and that's exactly what GB News is all about."

He captioned the snap: "And in other news... The Band is back together! We did it before on #SkyNews now we will become the new Breakfast hosts on GB News from January. Happy New Year."
