They added to Metro.co.uk: “This wasn’t directed at anyone in particular – indeed she has always been supportive of a number of her professional colleagues and friends who have taken this route.
“Any suggestion that it is in reference to recent newspaper reports would be entirely wrong and categorically untrue.”
A spokesperson for This Morning also told the publication in response to the reports: “We have a stellar presenting line up on This Morning in Holly and Phillip and Eamonn and Ruth. Any additions to this line up will be announced in due course.”
A source spoke to Mirror Online about Dermot and Alison reportedly taking over on Fridays, saying: “They have real warmth.
“It’s time for a change and they are perfect.”
Ruth, Eamonn, Alison and Dermot have not yet spoken about or confirmed the reports of the shake-up at This Morning.
