Eamonn Holmes makes subtle dig at Phillip Schofield as he likes NTAs tweet

Eamonn Holmes appears to have made a subtle dig at some of his This Morning co-stars – namely Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

Last week, This Morning won in the Daytime category, beating the likes of Loose Women, The Chase and The Repair Shop.

But fans were left a little disappointed when Phil and Holly took over the mic, leaving no opportunity for Eamonn and wife Ruth Langsford to address the audience.

And it seems as though Eamonn, 61, may have shared some of the same feelings – he and Ruth had just been running things over the summer, after all.

The often-controversial presenter has liked a number of tweets about his and Ruth's background appearance at the NTAs.

One read: "People asking with Eamonn and Ruth didn't talk at the awards. That's what I was thinking. I was waiting for them to take the mic it never happened. Such a shame, that's why I voted for This Morning. I won't again."

Another tweet he liked said: "Why do Eamonn or Ruth never get to speak when This Morning wins an award? It's them we voted for!"

And a third said: "Last night I watched the NTAs and saw This Morning add another trophy to the collection. It wouldn't have won if the judging had been based on today's mind-numbing programme. Eamonn and Ruth you are so very missed and you so deserved to be on that stage last night."

Eamonn responded to that tweet with a series of thankful hand emojis, adding: "You are so kind. Thank you for your sentiments."

A tweet from another account in response read: "I think the NTA was only won because people voted over the summer when Eamonn and Ruth were on. I've stopped watching now until October."

This Morning fans were left devastated at the end of last year when Eamonn and Ruth left their usual Friday slot on the show.

Now, the married duo only appear during the school holidays, replacing Holly and Phil from Monday through to Thursday.

The couple was reportedly "upset" after they were dropped from the show late last year after 14 years.

And it's clear fans were just as gutted too, although many have been loving their replacements Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary.

At last week's NTAs, while This Morning took home the Daytime gong yet again, it was Coronation Street which was the big winner of the night.

The ITV soap won in three categories – Serial Drama, Newcomer (Jude Rioardan who plays Sam Blakeman), and Serial Drama Performance (Mollie Gallagher who plays Nina Lucas).

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
