It’s the most unexpected cameo of 2021, but eagle eyed fans were on the ball to spot Eamonn Holmes next to his wife Ruth Langsford in a shot with Reese Witherspoon.

The husband and wife duo were spotted in the background of a shot in the new Apple TV+ series of The Morning Show.

During the scene, Reese can be seen having a meeting while This Morning plays on the screens behind her.

Reese is clearly a fan of the ITV show, as the star appeared on This Morning with her co-star Jennifer Anniston, who plays fellow news anchor Alex Levy, at the end of 2019.

The pair were interviewed by now This Morning co-host Alison Hammond, who had Reese and Jennifer in fits of giggles.

The Morning Show is based on the goings on in front and behind the camera at a morning TV show in America.

Stuart Earl, who spotted the cameo and shared screenshots on Twitter, wrote: “And now it’s @thismorning’s turn @EamonnHolmes @RuthieeL !!”

He added: “Who knew they were such avid watchers over at UBA” in reference to the network that airs The Morning Show in America on the series.

Eamonn and Ruth, who tied the knot in 2010, are yet to comment on their cameos - but we reckon they’d be pretty chuffed with their appearance.

And we bet fellow hosts Alison, Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and Dermot O’Leary are pretty jealous!

But it wasn’t just This Morning that made an appearance, as the Loose Women ladies also made a cameo.

Stuart added: “Ha @loosewomen feartured in S2E1 of @AppleTV’s #TheMorningShow”

The panel could be seen having a discussion, while another shot showed Loose Woman Denise Welch chatting to her fellow panellists.

Hollyoaks actress Denise, who plays Trish Minniver, was thrilled with her cameo and took to Twitter to tell her fans.

“Just sitting on set @Hollyoaks and notice that Im just casually in The Monring Show @AppleTV @loosewomen”.

Former Corrie star Denise, 63, added with a series of crying with laughter emojis: “#fromhollyoakstohollywood”.

Denise’s fans were equally excited by the news, with one writing: “This is actually the most amazing thing ever”.

A second commented: “This has made my day” alongside a crying with laughter emoji.

A third added: “Jennifer Aniston eat your heart out coz here comes our fabulous Densy!x”
