After he was hit by criticism over his and wife Ruth Langsford's appearances on This Morning, Eamonn Holmes has hit back with a savage response.

The broadcaster, who was previously praised by Rylan Clark-Neal, was hit by a remark from author Primula Bond on Twitter.

It all started when an account started a petition on the social media platform to reinstate Eamonn and Ruth, both 61, on This Morning after they were dropped from their regular Friday slot.

Not being keen on the idea, Primula wrote: "God no," before adding: "I am uncomfortable with their bickering and he always looks so bored during fashion and other "lighter" segments."


Not taking the comment lightly, Eamonn responded: "Uncomfortable and boring …. u sure that wasn't one of your book reviews? We might have a lot in common."

Primula messaged back saying: "Ouch. Touché indeed. That will teach me for being mean. Sorry @EamonnHolmes."

The couple were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary for Friday presenting duties and now only host the show during school holidays when regular presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are away.

The pair last presented the show in April for the Easter holidays as Eamonn gave an update about his chronic back pain that he's been struggling with.

As the show began, the dad-of-four, who has been taking steroid injections, said: "About a month ago I did something to my back, I don't know what. It could have been getting in a car, getting out of bed, whatever.

"I've got an MRI scan but the problem is everything closes down at Easter so I haven't got it analysed yet.

"What I do know is I can't sleep at night, the pain is worse at night," Eamonn revealed in anguish.

"The humbling thing about this is when you go on social media you talk to people about who suffers from this, you realise age isn't a barrier, where you live isn't a barrier, how much you earn isn't a barrier…

"So many of you have this chronic pain from all sorts of different sources."

Since then, the host has revealed his chronic back pain is as a result of having three slipped discs which will take a year to heal.
