A source has commented that "nobody" wants to see the "popular duo" leave the programme but tough decisions are ahead.

They said: "Eamonn fears he is basically too 'pale, stale and male', and, at 60, perhaps not in line with the youth drive broadcasters are after.

"The shows execs have some very tricky decisions."

"One possibility is to keep the couple on as regular holiday cover but lose their regular Friday slot," the source continued to The Sun.
