Former This Morning host Eamonn Holmes was stopped by police on his way to work today.
The Northern Ireland GB host, 62, says he was “happy” that Surrey Police had stopped him to check his vehicle after there had been a number of car thefts in his area recently.
Eamonn told his Twitter fans that police just checked that the car he was sitting in was not one that had been stolen.
He wrote: “Was pulled over by the #police on the way to work and happy to be.
“A lot of car thefts in my area, and they just checked that the car I was sitting in was not one of them … 2 young officers in their 20s and an absolute credit to @SurreyPolice.”
Eamonn was on his way to work at 4.55am when he made the tweet.
He was removed from ITV’s This Morning earlier this year.
But it seems that Eamonn is happier than ever at his new workplace – recently he admitted that he “does not miss TV in the daytime”.
Eamonn hosted the Friday edition of This Morning for 15 years with his wife Ruth, 61, before being replaced on the ITV show by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary last year.
During a performance on Stephs Madpakke, he was asked if he missed making TV in the daytime after 15 years on This Morning.
But Eamonn admitted he did not, revealing how much he enjoyed his new team.
He said: “Ehm, no, not at all. I’m really excited about the whole breaking news community and being involved in it. I think the first six, seven weeks now with GB News, god me, that’s happened a lot between Partygate and Ukraine’s situation.
“It just always happens. You do not really have time to stop and think about it.”
Eamonn continued: “It’s just a huge privilege Steph to be involved in something you want to do.
“They say that if you do something you love, you never work a day in your life, and it’s nice to be appreciated. It’s nice to be with people who want you to be there. It’s nice to feel that you are contributing. “
