Eamonn Holmes criticised for comments on today's This Morning
People aren't happy.
Husband and wife presenting duo Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have been filling in for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning for the last couple of weeks.
Today's instalment frustrated viewers as people criticised Eamonn for his insensitivity during one of the show's segments.
The topic of discussion was Paul Hollywood who has recently struck up a relationship with a woman 30 years his junior.
Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood (52) is dating Summer Monteys-Fullam (22) and their romance has generated great media attention.
Speaking about it today, Ruth said that Eamonn's daughter Rebecca (26) would 'disown' him if he started going out with a woman who was 30 years younger than him.
However, then Eamonn asked Ruth if she would be disgusted and it's clear that she was irritated by his comments, saying that he was riling her up.
People watching at home were irritated by Eamonn joking about what many deem a sensitive subject and they shared their views on Twitter.
How does Ruth put up with Eamonn. He’s so annoying. #thismorning

However, some viewers could see a lighter side to the conversation with one person saying that the 'banter' between the couple makes for interesting TV.
Eamonn and Ruth your banter #thismorning cracks me up!
