Veteran presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford will be back on This Morning less than a year after their surprise replacement.

The duo were swapped out of the ITV magazine show in favour of Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary at the end of last year, amid rumours they weren't too happy with the change.

Now they'll be back on the sofa over the summer, taking over Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby's slots temporarily in July for the summer holidays, according to The Mirror.

Ruth - who had starred on the show for 14 years alongside Eamonn - told OK! Magazine : "We’ll be doing seven weeks from July. I’m looking forward to it."

It comes months after the long-standing presenters were said to be "furious and upset" about being axed.

It was even reported that they were warned not to speak out.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "Ruth and Eamonn are obviously upset and feel humiliated about being put out to pasture.

"It could damage their brand if they lash out."

But some have speculated they've made a few subtle digs about their replacements.

Amazon Prime has thousands of original series, sport documentaries and films you can subscribe to watch here for just £7.99/ month plus a free month trial included.

Disney+ is here in the UK and if paid for an annual subscription can save viewers 15%, giving you access to Disney and Pixar films, and popular series such as The Mandalorian. New O2 customers, or existing customers who are upgrading their plan, can get up to 6 free months of Disney+.

Also, Apple TV offer a free trial for seven days but just remember that the subscription will renew automatically at £4.99/a month, so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want it anymore.

Netflix is available on your smartphone, tablet, smart TV, laptop or streaming device, all for one fixed monthly fee. Plans range from £5.99 to £13.99 a month. No extra costs, no contracts.

Eammon told the Talking Success podcast: "Television is the easiest thing you’ll ever do in your life, made difficult by people who don’t understand it or who want to seem important because if they suddenly say, ‘No, no, no’ they’re important.

"It never ceases to amaze me how few interviewers take the time to talk to their guests."

Ruth also appeared to make a dig at replacement Alison's reality TV career that began on Big Brother, when she said in an interview with Mirror Notebook: "We've put the work in.

"We didn't do a reality show and get an overnight job on the telly. We've come up through the ranks."
