Alison and Dermot will begin their new jobs on January 8, with Phillip Schofield, 58, and Holly Willoughby, 39, sticking to their usual Monday to Thursday slots.

Eamonn wished the new hosts good luck in an emotional tweet where he said: “It’s a changing of the guard on Fridays from January.

“We hope you make Alison and Dermot as welcome as you’ve made us over the years. Have a Ball you two!

“It’s not Goodbye from us, it’s simply Au Revoir until the next half term.”
