Former This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes was stopped by police on his way to work today.
The Northern Ireland British host, 62, says he is “delighted” that Surrey Police stopped him to check his vehicle after there have been a recent spate of car thefts in his area.
Eamonn told his Twitter fans that police were checking to make sure the car he was in had not been stolen.
He wrote: “Stopped by #police on his way to work and delighted.
“Lots of car thefts in my area and they were just checking to make sure the car I was in wasn’t one of them…2 young officers in their 20’s and an absolute credit to @SurreyPolice.”
Eamonn was on his way to work at 4.55am when he tweeted.
Earlier this year he was dropped from ITV’s This Morning.
But it seems Eamonn is happier than ever in his new job – he recently admitted he “don’t miss daytime TV”.
Eamonn co-hosted the Friday edition of This Morning with his wife Ruth, 61, for 15 years before they were replaced on the ITV show by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary last year.
During an appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch, he was asked if he missed watching daytime TV after 15 years on This Morning.
However, Eamonn admitted he hadn’t and revealed how much he was enjoying his new team.
He said, “Um, no, not at all. I’m really excited about the whole breaking news environment and being a part of it. I think the first six, seven weeks of GB News, my goodness, there was a lot going on between Partygate and the situation in Ukraine.
“It just always happens, you don’t really have time to stop and think about it.”
Eamonn continued: “It’s just a tremendous privilege, Steph, to be involved in something you want to do.
“They say if you do something you love, don’t work a day in your life, and it’s nice to be appreciated. It’s nice to be around people who want you to be there. It’s nice to feel that you are making a contribution.”
