Eamonn Holmes, 61, left fans stunned after he responded to a post containing a quote from comedian Ricky Gervais which contained expletive language. The This Morning host undoubtedly meant for the post to be well-meaning, however, some of his followers took exception to the language Eamonn shared.

Eamonn posted a picture of Ricky along with a quote from the star.

It read: “If you enjoy seeing an animal terrified or in pain you are a [bleep].”

Eamonn captioned the picture: “This is why I love this man @rickygervais.”

He also added the dog emoji and a number of applause emojis.

Many agreed that they backed the sentiment, but took issue with the “vile language”.

One said: “Totally agree with the sentiment, but not the vile language.”

A second agreed and said: “Agree with the sentiment, just not the choice of words.”

A third said: “I hate the vile language, and it doesn’t take a genius to say something so self-evident – any normal person would agree with it.”

Others feared Eamonn’s account had been hacked.

“HAS YOUR ACCOUNT BEEN HACKED EAMONN?? Why would you post something with the C word? VILE!” They said.

However, others did have Eamonn’s back.

One said: “That’s the whole point, that’s how strongly he feels about it and he’s right.”

“Totally agree with you Eamonn and Ricky,” declared a second.

“Agreed,” said another. “Ricky Gervais is one of the kindest souls on earth.”

“Couldn’t agree more, he is a legend for animal protection!” said another.

Eamonn also shocked This Morning viewers yesterday with his choice of words on the show.

During the cooking segment, he surprised This Morning fans as he called John Torode “a dirty pig”.

It came during a debate about how to eat Custard Cream biscuits, with Eamonn taking exception to John’s eating habits.

“You’re such a dirty pig. Imagine living with you,” he quipped.

“You’re like the sort of child that would try to lick your plate clean.”

Fans were unsure whether they found it hilarious or completely shocking, with one user taking to Twitter, one user wrote: “Rude Eamonn!”
