THIS Morning fans went wild today after Eamonn Holmes returned for a travel sector 3 weeks after he was axed from hosting Fridays.
Viewers were pleased to hear the much loved speaker lending his voice to a trip of the Caribbean in the throwback section.
The 61-year-old star, who used to anchor Fridays on Today with spouse Ruth Langsford, was presented by Phillip Schofield.
He said: “In our very own ‘Vacation 81’ series told by our really own Eamonn Holmes, we take a look back.”
Travel footage then flashed up on screen with culinary star Phil Vickery heading to Turks and Caicos, diving for sea crustaceans and learning more about the locals.
Audiences shared their responses on Twitter as Eamonn went back to This Morning earlier than expected after being relegated to vacation cover.
One begged to see Eamonn on screen though, as they said: “oh how I wish Eamonn was on.”
Another composed: “Honestly, I miss out on ruth and eamonn so much”
Eamonn and Ruth stepped down from their routine hosting gig on the show after 15 years to give way for Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.
The choice drew in a considerable backlash from audiences unhappy that their preferred speakers were being changed.
However in his parting words to audiences, Eamonn asked fans of the program to be “great and beautiful” to the pair saying he was “very close” to Alison.
He shared in the final minutes of his last Friday on air in December: “You will not be viewing us any more on Friday.
” Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, they’re going to be here on Friday from here on in.
” Please can we ask you to be as nice and lovely to them, good friends of ours as they are, we’re very near to Alison, as you have actually been to us for the previous 15 years.
Nevertheless, Eamonn had earlier introduced into a mini outburst about how managers were “getting rid” of him and Ruth.
He informed Ruth: “Do you understand what I saw the other day? Outside the opticians was a male selling Christmas trees, discounting them by half price.”

His wife responded: “They’re having a hard time to get rid of them, I expect.”
Eamonn informed her: “I would say so, beloved. That’s the apparent conclusion. Which is why they’re getting rid of us on a Friday now – after all this sort of chat.”
However she chided him: “Oh stop it” before continuing with the remainder of the show.
