EAMONN Holmes has reacted to Holly Willoughby's NTAs humiliation after his former show home This Morning lost out on a gong and was booed at The O2.
It was also the first time in 14 years that the This Morning star, 42, attended the industry awards without her former co-host Phillip Schofield.
Phil, 61, made a telling move just hours before Holly, 42, attended the ceremony when he unfollowed her on social media.
Today Eamonn couldn't resist cracking a joke about This Morning's embarrassment, telling TV viewers: "Apparently the audience were just chanting, 'Bring back Eamonn'."
Guest Scarlett MccGwire played along and the fellow broadcaster commented: "Obviously Eamonn they are. "
And she added that "the big story" was the Sun's exclusive thatPhillip Schofield had stopped following Holly on social media.

"So what she does is, 'You want a picture?' and then she turns her backside round to the camera.
"You telling me that is a particular pose?"
His co-host Isabel Webster explained on the GB News show: "She's obviously got a very expensive Couture gown and very neat tailoring of the fishtail and it emphasises her curves, of which she's very proud. So there you go."
Holly walked the red carpet last night in a stunning lilac dress.
She later missed out on a picking up a prize for This Morning after The Repair shop won in the Daytime category at the glitzy bash.
Following the announcement, Jay Blades ran into the crowd towards Holly and This Morning to give them a supportive hug.
Holly – who was caught in a queue jumping scandal last year – stood up with open arms to ambrace Jay before he leaned towards Alison and hugged her in her seat.
Reacting on X, formerly known as Twitter, one viewer said: "#NTAs repair shop went to hug Alison but Holly had to jump in first. Always jumping the queue."
A second said: "Go the Repair Shop well deserved . So humble and you didnt need to skip a queue or fall out with each other."
One more said: "The Repair Shop. Wholesome television. Honest television. Richly deserved win."
Last year Holly and Phillip Schofield addressed accusations on This Morning that they jumped the queue to see the Queen lying in state on Friday.
