The pair previously presented the programme every Friday, but they were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary in January - and Ruth has now revealed they are returning to the brunch-time show over the summer holidays.

She told OK! magazine: "We’ll be doing seven weeks from July.

"I’m looking forward to it."

Eamonn and Ruth have filled in for main hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby since their departure, but they didn't appear on the show during the recent half-term.

The pair co-hosted the show in April, and Eamonn took the opportunity to tell viewers he is going to be a grandfather for the first time.

The 61-year-old TV presenter said: "Declan is my eldest boy, he's 32, and Jenny is his beloved wife.

"They have just announced that I, together with Valerie and Robin, Jenny's mum and dad, and Gabrielle, Declan's mummy, we're all going to be grandparents.

"It's very good. We're very happy."

Ruth, who is Declan's step-mother, added: "Declan and Jenny - we're so, so happy for you. Lots of love to you.

"They're going to be the most wonderful parents."

Eamonn has recently been recovering after he suffered three slipped discs.

Last month, he told fans he was doing "baby exercises" to rebuild nerve endings in his leg.

He wrote on Twitter: "Working on my balance and leg weakness. Have to build nerve ends back in my Right leg- but going well. I was doing almost baby exercises today .... in fact so easy did they look that I thought I would give you an insight and a laugh. will edit tonight and post tomorrow (sic)"
