But Alison confirmed that wasn’t the case as she turned down today’s episode of the hit ITV show.

The 46-year-old said: “We’ll be here next week” – with Dermot, 48, revealing they’ll be talking to Coronation Street’s Will Mailer and celebrating Danny Minogue’s birthday.

But some conservatives were upset, with one tweeting: “Where are Eamon and Ruth next week?”

Another tweeted: “We’ve been cheated.! Vacation time should be Eamon and not Ruth these two.”

After a major setback in January, Ruth and Eamon were dropped from hosting Friday’s edition of the ITV show.

He was told that he would still be allowed to host as the holiday cover and returned half term in February.

They extended the show for seven weeks during the summer holidays, when Holly and Philip had a long break.

Ruth and Eamon hosted their last weekly episode in December last year, when they were forced out as part of a shake-up over the day’s hit.

A TV insider previously reported that Eamon feared he was “too pale, stale and male” to remain a regular face on the show for much longer.
