Eamonn Holmes journalistic career spans nearly 35 years and he is the longest-serving breakfast television anchorman in Britain. He currently hosts the three-hour Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes programme on Sky News, Monday to Thursday mornings. Eamonn’s reign as the king of breakfast television stems back to the launch of the newly created GMTV in 1993, which he presented for 13 years.
Outside of his early starts on Sky, Eamonn is a familiar face on ITV where he co-hosts This Morning alongside his wife Ruth Langsford every Friday and during half-terms, and Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays. Together they presented Gift Wrapped an ITV quiz show for betrothed couples, playing to win their gift lists.
Eamonn has presented top-rated, prime-time quiz shows including The National Lottery’s Jet Set (BBC1), Have I Got News For You (BBC1), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC), The Rich List (Fox TV) and many more. Most recently he was hugely popular as a guest on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on The Side which led to him fronting a special edition of CBB News.
Eamonn and Ruth have a weekly column in Best magazine.
Father of four Eamonn is a news and sports junkie and a passionate Manchester United fan.
