This Morning fans spot tribute to Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes despite axe

Eagle-eye This Morning viewers spotted a tribute to hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes following the news that they are being replaced.

As fans tuned into the ITV show on Monday morning, they noticed that the famous couple are still very much a part of the studio.

As Holly Willoughby hosted the latest edition of the series while seated at a wooden desk, a few shelves could be seen to the left of her.

Filled with plants and ornaments, there were also two white mugs placed on the top shelf with the initials R and E on them.

The fan who spotted it shared a clip on Twitter, asking: "Who @thismorning decided not to change Eamonn and Ruth’s mugs?"

It comes after it was reported that Ruth and her husband, both 60, "didn't know" about ITV's plans to replace them on Fridays.

Following the news that the couple are being replaced by Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond, it emerged that Ruth had spoken about the job in a recent interview.

Chatting with new! magazine, she said that "nobody has told me" after she was asked whether her and Eamonn were heading for the door.

Ruth, who has been presenting the show with her husband since 2006, shrugged it off and acted as if she wasn't concerned.

She said to the publication: "There's always talk, I don't know. Not that anybody's told me."

The telly star also went on to say that she wasn't worried about losing her job of 14 years.

Ruth continued: "Not really, because I think I am very good at what I do, and as long as they want me I'll be there.

"I've been doing it a very long time and it seems we've been very popular."

Ruth continued: "So I presume all those things will be taken into consideration."

It's since been alleged that Ruth and Eamonn are "furious and upset" over the shake-up.
