17 May 2019 11:55
Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were back in their regular roles hosting This Morning on Fridays today.The married couple introduced the ITV show talking about their star-struck meeting with Hollywood A-Lister George Clooney yesterday, and both gushed over how truly “nice” he was in real life.Ruth, 59, then went on to say she thought she could tell how a celebrity really was from how they treated the people behind the scenes - saying she often thought stars were nice to her and Eamonn simply because they were “on the telly”.As they showed viewers the pictures, Eamonn teased he and George were so similar viewers would struggle to tell them apart.
“Again, that’s me on the right,” he said in reference to the photo, and Ruth encouraged: “Yeah it’s uncanny can’t tell you apart.”“Similar heights, similar builds…” Eamonn went on, and Ruth declared the resemblance was “spooky”.But Eamonn was keen to discuss some of the “really big” celebrities in the business who have been really kind.Ruth enthused: “Yes Dame Edna Everage, Peter Kay.“Peter Kay is really lovely.”But desperate to share his own story, Eamonn, also 59, cut in to shut down Ruth’s ideas.

“Yes but I’m talking about big stars,” he declared, and Ruth’s mouth momentarily dropped open in shock.“He is a big star! How dare you?” she snapped, but it was only in mock anger.The presenter simply smiled and listened as her husband revealed how he thought Pierce Brosnan was the ultimate in nice celebrities.Also during today’s programme, the presenters welcomed a debate about the latest claims some British Airways cabin crew employees were warned about the colour bras they wore underneath their uniform shirts.Eamonn joked: “Well they do it here with me.”
“[Producers say] ‘no more thongs’ and tell me what to wear.Laughing, Ruth chimed in: “Yes only sensible clothes for you.”British Airways rubbished the claims with a statement on Good Morning Britain today.Kate Garraway said: “They say they’re disappointed that an open letter from a trade union containing anecdotes about their current uniform has turned into inaccurate reporting on non-existent policies.“They say they have no policy on type of underwear and have no intention of introducing one. So that’s cleared up that position.”This Morning continues Sunday on ITV.
