TV presenter Eamonn Holmes worries 'all the time' at the chance that he could lose his job because of his outspoken views.

The This Morning host, who presents the show alongside his wife Ruth Langsford during half term and holidays, usually speaks his mind but fears he could be 'sacked' due to this.

Eamonn, 61, has previously been called out for making comments that could be taken offensively.

The most recent example is when he compared the show's resident doctor Dr Zoe's natural hair to Geronimo the alpaca, a comment for which he later apologised.

He told the Daily Star: "It's a minefield, I worry all the time.

"I know I’m the most tolerant, caring, open-minded person but that doesn’t stop me saying that something is wrong or right, or having a joke.

"But there are people who wake up wanting to be offended and they literally want you sacked."

Eamonn also recently admitted that he is a fan of fellow outspoken host Piers Morgan.

Piers walked off the breakfast show in March this year during an argument regarding Meghan Markle and later quit his job and refused to apologise.

However, Eamonn then went on to say that he's doesn't like the 'patronising posh blokes' who he thinks are taking over our screens.

Eamonn said: "They’re so awful. This patronising thing from posh blokes who sit there, this Oxbridge lot, trying to preach to us what’s right and what’s wrong. I don’t think people really look and see how bad some of the presenters are."

Last year Ruth and Eamonn were replaces by Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary on their usual Friday This Morning slot.

After the change was announce, Eamonn liked a number of tweets from fans who complained about them being replaced.

One of the tweets said: "When you listen to @EamonnHolmes & @RuthieeL and the everyday normal things they get up to, it makes you wonder why management at @thismorning have relegated them to holidays only?

"They deserve a regular spot, bring them back for a weekly slot please, it makes sense! "

Along with their other This Morning colleagues, the pair recently won the National Television Award for Best Daytime Show.

However, Eamonn and Ruth barely said a word on stage as main hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby gave a thank you speech instead.

Following this, Eamonn went on to like a series of tweets about his lack of airtime at the awards.
