Eamonn Holmes reveals he was dropped from ‘Who do you think you are?’

Television presenter Eamonn Holmes has revealed that ‘Who do you think you are?’ bosses dropped him from the show.

The 57-year-old, who presents ITV’s This Morning alongside his wife Ruth Langsford has revealed he was involved in the tracing his ancestors, and even spent two days with genealogists.

However, much to some peoples surprise, there was nothing shocking from Eamonn’s family – he comes from a straight forward honest farming lineage.

Which is exactly why he was axed from the show, telling the Mirror newspaper:  “We come from a very boring family.”

Big Brother host Emma Willis took part in the most recent series of the show, and she was left horrified when she found out her five-times-great great grandfather Richard Fowler tried to kill a blacksmith and his son.

Emma told the BBC One show: “That’s horrific. How can you defend doing that to somebody? That was exactly what I didn’t want to find out.”
