What do others think of this pair . Personally I find them annoying , their constant braying on being hard done by as far as "This Morning" is concerned . I haven't watched the show for many years , so perhaps they have a valid gripe. Again today both of them appearing in the media with tight lips standing next to Phillip Scourfield ( again I am not a fan, ) after the show won an award last night. They come across as being bitter. Also their constant bickering on screen seems to be reported constantly in the press.

Last week, I watched Rochelle Humes and Andi Peters, who were entertaining, interesting. I find all the other couples irritating. The TV is on mute in the corner of the living room; if something interesting crops up, I turn the sound on. As I don't want meat, fish or pudding recipes and don't watch soaps or reality TV, that's not often.
When it won last night, I laughed out loud.

62Granny you say you haven't ' watched the show for many years' then go on to say 'they are constantly bickering'
I didn't see any tight lips.

I'd rather have Eamonn and Ruth than Holly and Phillip any day.

crazyH Fri 10-Sep-21 23:15:34

Frankly, I prefer them to Phil and Holly (candy floss)

Zoejory Fri 10-Sep-21 23:19:20

I love Ruth and Eamon. They don't bicker either. They are a happily married couple who chat naturally in front of the cameras.

Unlike Holly and Philip who laugh at absolutely nothing.

As for Dermot and Alison. Words fail me.

I only watch when Eamon and Ruth are on which isn't very often these days

I prefer them to Phil and Holly. But was disappointed yesterday to see they’ve joined in the mug a gullible granny mid afternoon advertising slot.

It went something like this..
R..let’s go for a walk
E..oh I’d love to but my legs are so sore.
R..you need to try my silly electrical stimulating foot machine. Just place your feet on it and this amazing £300 machine will make a new man of you.

Fast forward a few minutes and they are striding through the park and Eamonn overtakes Ruth.

Those electrical foot machine adverts seem to be entirely populated by tedious B list celebrities who would do anything for a quick buck.

Zoejory Sat 11-Sep-21 09:43:54

Oh yes, those appalling adverts. They sound so stilted. I'm surprised. Just shows that acting is a skill and one the Eamon and Ruth don't possess.

henetha Sat 11-Sep-21 09:45:24

I've never been a fan of them. I'm not keen on This Morning and rarely watch it.

Lollin Sat 11-Sep-21 09:47:17

I prefer their advert to alllll the different ones Philly keeps popping up in.

I thought P & H were never going to stop giving each other congratulating kisses at the awards ignoring others around them so maybe it is their show and they view other pairings as helping them to look the best, though not

Katyj Sat 11-Sep-21 09:47:43

I like them both, but I think they need to be careful now of over exposure. Every day there is a story about them. Their both on social media sites everyday. Even I’m a bit fed up of them 🤣

Harris27 Sat 11-Sep-21 09:53:12

Yes over exposure kills them.

Millie22 Sat 11-Sep-21 09:54:39

I just wish she'd do something with her hair. She'd look so much better with tidy hair and not all that boufanty stuff.

I don’t watch this daytime stuff, but sure it was Emmon Holmes who once did a documentary on alcoholism, as I think he’s an alcoholic.

He did it very well, and there were a few shots of his wife, as parts were filmed in his home. They seemed normal enough I suppose, but then the content was interesting, unlike what I’ve sometimes stumbled upon accidentally, the drivel of the daytime program.

That advert really annoys me! Am I the only one to notice that the final part where Eamonn strides out shows that he is wearing underpants (or none) which allow his penis to hang down his trouser leg - ugh!

I hate the bickering and Eamonn 'putting his foot in it' regularly.

Good grief! I'd not seen this. I must away to Youtube to check

Just checked. Didn't see a thing

Adrian Chiles did a program about alcoholism, I wondered if you may have got mixed up. Apologies if not smile

This Morning is nothing like the halcyon days of Richard and Judy, is it.

I’ve posted this before on here; but remember when some bloke took viagra on air, went to a hotel with the missus, and then they returned to tell an over excited Richard all about it?!

trisher Sat 11-Sep-21 10:24:11

Can't stand any of them so rarely watch it. They all appear to be making huge amounts on the side from advertising.

You are right Fanny, my mistake. That means I don’t know the couple this thread is talking about....so will slink quietly away! 🤪

JaneJudge Sat 11-Sep-21 11:04:24

He looked old at the TV awards that were on, though he quite suited a walking stick I thought smile I suppose I haven't watched this morning much.

We bought my MIL one of those machines. I hadn't realised how expensive they were! She has never used it hmm

Sago Sat 11-Sep-21 11:08:54

I would rather stick pins in my eyes than watch that awful couple.
I hate daytime TV and cannot understand how anyone could start the day with Lorraine,Phil and Holly or the smug Ruth and Eamonn.

Namsnanny Sat 11-Sep-21 11:22:46

I just hate my tv viewing being overtaken by a silly over inflated show about over inflated tv personalities.

Trisha57 Sat 11-Sep-21 11:31:21

Zoejory I just had a look at the advert on Youtube as well. Unfortunately the sun is shining on my screen and I couldn't see properly. I'll have another look this evening!!!!

Millie22 Sat 11-Sep-21 11:35:29

I've just looked on YouTube as well. Nothing that I can see I think he's wearing baggy trousers that's all.
