Eamonn Holmes is one of the busiest and longest-running presenters on television.

He awarded an OBE on the 2017 New Year’s Honours List, marking 38 years on our screens.

With his wife Ruth Langsford he fronts ITV’s This Morning each Friday and the pair fill in for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby during school holidays.

Their chemistry and good-natured ribbing have made them one of TV’s most popular couples. Since 2015 the pair have also hosted the popular Channel 5 show How the Other Half Lives, with three series having aired so far.

But 58-year-old Eamonn doesn’t stop there. He is rarely off our screens, and also finds time to front a popular radio programme and give his time to various charities. So what is his net worth?

Eamonn’s work ethic and easygoing presenting style have led to an estimated personal fortune of £3 million, according to The Sun.

His broadcasting career began in the late seventies at Ulster Television. He took over from Gloria Hunniford to host the Good Evening Ulster programme in 1982, and left to join the BBC four years later where he worked on the Open Air programme.

In 1993, Holmes started working at GMTV, the show that made him a household name.

He left the show 12 years later, apparently because he was unhappy with its focus on entertainment news. Not long after, he joined Sky News as the host of its new-look Sunrise show.

He departed in 2016 after 11 years with the programme and various co-hosts, including Charlotte Hawkins who is now on Good Morning Britain, where Eamonn is an occasional guest host.

Over the years the popular presenter has also hosted Songs of Praise, The National Lottery and Have I Got News for You.

With his wife, he fronted the ITV game show Gift Wrapped in 2014 and Channel 5’s consumer affairs programme, Do the Right Thing.

Eamonn is also a regular voice on the radio. He presented a Saturday morning show on Radio 5 Live for six years until 2009, and has also appeared on Magic and Radio 2.

Since 2016, he’s presented his own show on Talkradio.

Of course, wife Ruth has a very lucative career of her own, thanks to her This Morning role as well as a regular slot on Loose Women. She also has a fashion range with QVC.

Ruth, also 58, is thought to be worth £3 million in her own right.

The couple added to their fortune when they sold exclusive rights to their wedding in 2010 to Hello magazine.

They married at the 19th century Elvetham Hotel in Hampshire in front of famous guests including Gloria Hunniford, Amanda Lamb and Jeremy Kyle, and photos from the nuptials appeared across two editions of the magazine.

The pair live in a six-bedroom mansion in Weybridge, Surrey, estimated to be worth £3.5 million, with their teenage son Jack.

Together they are patrons of various charities, including Dogs Trust.
