The 58-year-old TV presenter, who is married to his This Morning co-host Ruth Langsford, was revealed as the person who love Island’s Laura Anderson has a crush on.

Eamonn was mentioned during the ITV2 show last night when Laura was discussing her celebrity crush in the villa.

She told her fellow islanders, “Oh, I really fancy Eamonn Holmes.” She continued, “I just love him and Ruth and I think they’re so cute together.”

He took to Twitter to add, “I have to thank that lovely Laura girl from #loveisland for the nice things she said about me.

“Let’s just not share them with @RuthieeL . I don’t want to get my mugged offs and Cracking on’s mixed up …but plenty to discuss on Tomorrow’s @thismorning .”

And it wasn’t long before the news got back to Eamonn, who decided to tell his 390,000 Instagram followers how if felt to be named.

One fan suggested, “@eamonnholmes and @ruthlangsford should go to the villa and host one of the quizzes on @loveislandwhat do you think @itv @itv2″ and another said, “Put @eamonnholmes in the villa!!! See Laura’s face!’ to which Eamonn agreed. He said, “Now there’s an idea.”

A third pointed out, “Won’t that be a big awkward if you and Ruth interview her on this morning.”
