EAMONN Holmes has posted an emotional message to fans from the home he shares with wife Ruth Langsford after bowing out on This Morning.
The 61-year-old star said they were "getting on with our lives" after The Sun revealed he'd told friends he was sick of "office politics".
Eamonn and Ruth are being replaced by younger presenters Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary from January 8.
Posting from his lounge today looking relaxed in a black T-shirt and without the glasses he has had to wear all week, he paid tribute to his fans.
Eamonn said: "'Hello everyone – I just wanted to say something to you from the bottom of my heart.
"Ruth and I have been overwhelmed yesterday and today by the amount of messages – and we'll be replying via social media, by emails, by texts, by Whatsapp, whatever way we can.
"But can I just generally say thank you, thank you, thank you. We do feel the love, really appreciate it but stop it, stop it now.
"It's Christmas time, mistletoe and wine. We've all got things to do, so thank you. Get on with your lives – we certainly intend to get on with ours.
"Look, things are looking up. My sty is nearly gone, the sun is shining and I just want to say to all of you.
"Have a very merry Christmas and please stay safe. Thank you very, very much all of you."
He captioned the post: "Your messages are the best Christmas presents Ruth and I could have wished for. From the bottom of our Hearts. Thank you, Thank you."
