IT'S fair to say Eamonn Holmes is a household name thanks to his long career as a broadcaster.
The telly legend shocked fans when he left ITV for good and took up a new role on GB News.
Where is Eamonn Holmes this morning?
Since leaving ITV, Eamonn has been hosting the GB News Breakfast Show.
He joined in January 2022, and co-hosts alongside Isabel Webster.
The pair previously worked on Sky News Sunrise together, before leaving in 2016.
Their GB News slot runs from 6am until 9,30am.
Fans of the show have noticed he was not on the Breakfast Show this morning (February 22, 2022).
GB News have not given a reason for why Eamonn is away from his post – but as soon as we know, you'll know.

Who has replaced Eamonn Holmes?
Eamonn has today (February 22, 2022) been replaced on the GB News Breakfast Show by Stephen Dixon
Just like Eamonn, Stephen is a veteran news anchor known for Sky News.
It was announced in November 2021 that he would be joining the GB News Team.
Why did Eamonn Holmes left ITV?
Eamonn and Ruth Langsford were known for fronting This Morning on Fridays and during the school holidays.
Fans were devastated when the couple were moved from their regular slot after 15 years, and replaced by Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond.
Sources have suggested Eamonn was furious — though ITV had initially said they would regularly replace weekday pairing Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby during their breaks.
In an interview with The Sun, Eamonn cautiously said he would rather not discuss his feelings about the departure, but tellingly added: “Put it this way, I’m looking forward to a move somewhere new where they’re pleased to have me. But I wish everyone well at ITV."
In another interview in February 2022, Eamonn told the Daily Mail's Weekend magazine: "'No one explained anything to me.
"I'm all for TV companies being able to choose who works for them, but it would be nice if you were told why you were going.
"They're sly. They didn't want to announce that I'd been dropped because it would adversely affect audience figures, so they made it look as if I'd walked away from them rather than the other way round."
