Others also wondered if he and wife Ruth Langsford would be announcing their return to presenting Friday mornings.

The couple were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary on This Morning earlier this year, and now only present during the key holidays.

At the time, the married couple took to Twitter to share identical statements on their respective accounts, they wrote: "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."

Following the announcement new host Alison said: "I never dreamt that when I first joined This Morning - initially for a few months - that I would still be there 19 years later.

"I genuinely care about the show and the viewers who watch, so it's a huge privilege and honour to be hosting a show I adore so much. I'm just really excited to be doing even more of what I love alongside the lovely Dermot."
