Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have landed their own chat show.

The "This Morning" hosts impressed bosses so much with their documentary "The 7-Year Itch" last year that they've been given the opportunity to film their own weekly show for Channel 5 which will see them interview celebrities and discuss real-life stories.

A source told The Sun Online: "Eamonn and Ruth are a top presenting team so it's no surprise there's plenty of interest from TV producers. The show is at the pilot stage but there's confidence within Channel 5 that it will become a full series. It's an exciting time."

The name of the show, which will air sometime this year, hasn't yet been decided but producers are currently using the working title "What A Week With Eamonn & Ruth."

It's been a busy time for the couple recently as Ruth, 57, dedicated three months of her life last year to "Strictly Come Dancing", while Eamonn, 58, received an OBE last week after he was recognised by Queen Elizabeth for his services to broadcasting.

He said at the time: "Ruth was even more thrilled than I was. I think she just thought it was very well deserved. It's recognition of a body of work. There would be very few broadcasters that have the body of work that I have had.

"To be on TV at 19 and host a general election at 23, it's unparalleled and unprecedented without anybody giving you a hand up. I did it on my own merits and worked very hard. The secret is reinvention."
