Sky news update: Eamonn Holmes is a regular Sky News presenter and has recently signed a new contract playing down speculation of a permanent move to ITV.
There have been recent suspicions circling Eamonn Holmes suggesting that he could potentially be moving to ITV to host their breakfast show Daybreak. However he has now quashed the speculation by signing a new five year contract with Sky, viewers can now be certain he will be presenting their news into the foreseeable future.
Holmes originates from Northern Ireland and currently presents Sky’s early morning show known as Sunrise. He announced that he would be staying with Sky on twitter. He spoke of how there comes a time when it is right to move on however he will be staying with Sky to add to the eight years of service he has accumulated.
Holmes already presents an ITV show; This Morning. He and his wife Ruth Langsford present this show every Friday morning. It was this current association with ITV which lead to the speculation of a current move at the end of his contract with Sky. If the supposed move had fallen through he was tipped to take over from Lorraine Kelly and Aled Jones and present Daybreak, which is aired every morning on ITV 1. Daybreak was first launched three years ago with Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley hosting the show.
However they were released in December 2011 after failing to create the viewership they had on BBC show; The One Show. Kelly and Jones now host the show after its relaunch last year however they saw a 400,000 viewer drop on the first episode from Chiles and Bleakley’s figures several years ago.
