The post comes as Eamonn enjoys a break from GB News. He and his usual co-host, Isabel Webster, were both absent from their morning news show, Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel, on Monday. The pair were temporarily replaced by fellow GB News presenters, Rosie Wright and Simon McCoy, who stood in for the regular hosts.

Some fans felt their absence and took to Twitter, with one person writing: "Where are Eamonn and Isabel?" while another welcomed temporary presenter, Rosie: "Great to see Rosie on breakfast news. Would love to see her on with Eamonn too please."

Eamonn and Isabel's break from the morning show comes after finishing a jam-packed week in Manchester last Friday. The pair's breakfast programme moved to Manchester for one week only to celebrate the show's rise in audience numbers in the Northern city.
