I always find it funny that you've got Pip Schofield and Lorraine Kelly having school holidays - their kids are too old for school now. Holly Willoughby has school holidays - her kids are too young for school yet. And yet Eammon and Ruth do all the school holidays and they're the only ones with a school age child!

I much prefer Eamonn and Ruth though. I agree with the previous poster, it's better with presenters who have a more journalistic background. Just wish they'd give them more serious subject matters to deal with than bloody fashion and soaps.

I seem to remember an interview with Eamonn when he left GMTV because they wouldn't give him a pay rise. In it he said he would never do a breakfast show again and would never work with his wife/partner

Guess they have good babysitters and like going away outside school hols. You might find they seem to be on holiday, or the odd days off, but doing other projects during the time off.

The Hub winner wasn't bad today, BOTS's AJ could learn a few things from her anyway.

Maybe I was thinking Eamonn wants to only do one show during the summer too spend time with kids - so taken time off from Sky News Sunrise

Do they have a clause where they have to have one transsexual a month on to talk about their journey?

I was thinking the same thing, they had a transgender couple just 3 weeks ago plus another transgender couple in June. Running out of ideas much?

Eamonn and Ruth have a school age son together. He is at a private school. Eamonn also has three older children, in their late 20's now I would imagine. He is a very generous man and looks after his Mother and ex wife so I guess he needs the work. Can't imagine all that plus funding private school and living in no doubt a stunning home in a lovely part of the Country comes cheap.

Personally I think This Morning should go back to taking a long summer break like it once did. It's tired and boring and in need of a break. Can't even watch it anymore as its sunk to gutter level.

Ruth is far better than Holly.

Lorraine Kelly has a daughter who is at uni but still takes the school holidays off to look after her. Must be terribly embarrassing for her daughter.

Who is saying she takes the summer off to look after her daughter though. I should imagine ITV are desperate to keep LK so will give her the summer off to keep her at the show. I am sure the daughter is far to busy enjoying a fantastic holiday maybe even with Mum to care about much else.

Then they must be mad. Going by these boards, she is the prime reason for the poor viewing figures.

She has said it herself in various interviews over the years.But in some gossip mag my wife gets she was quoted as saying she doesn't see much of her daughter now she's at uni Have you seen the ratings for her show bitheway ?

I don't watch GMTV anymore but I thought she was popular. Don't think it's her, it's the Snowman presenter that's not liked....is it. The singer... Can't think of his name.

Yes I can remember her being off for the daughter but does she still say it in 2013. If its offered then who would say no. All those weeks to enjoy spending your cash.

If her contract allows her the summer off that's fine but it's silly to say you're looking after a daughter who is grown up and at university.

This guy's name was Trevor and he'd changed it to Treeva or Treva so I turned on the subtitles to get a correct spelling. The subtitles called him Retriever. I know he wasn't the best lookin transgender but that's a bit harsh.

That might possibly be a mistake.

ROFL!

Whoever is in charge of subtitles needs to have a serious word with himself. I was in hysterics the other day on Corrie, when Rita talked about Dennis having gone to see some 'geriatric rock band', which Subtitles translated as the 'Gerry Hat Trick Band'.

Shame Ruth and Eamonn couldn't do this full time.

Eamonn tends to look knackered as it comes to Thursday when he does Sky Sunrise on top of This Morning.

Eammon's world-weary style of presenting is the best thing about TM. I'm not surprised he's like that with some of the pointless, annoying stuff that's on. There's always the odd good bit but TGF fast forward.

Can I second that.

Perhaps GMTV should have Eamon and Ruth presenting it. TM needs a good long rest over the summer and some of the utter trash on it dumped very quickly. All those annoying competition clips

I much prefer Eamon & Ruth- they have a bit of personality and aren't as pious as PipScho and are far more articulate than Holly, who makes a blow up doll look fiercely intelligent.
