The duo were taking over hosting duties from the show’s regular presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
The famous This Morning duo were away from the studio as they were at This Morning Live at Birmingham’s NEC Arena.
While on the show, Ruth and Eamonn interviewed ‘the bravest man in Britain’ Ant Smith.
Ant appeared on the daytime programme to open up about his micro-penis.

Ant has written a book titled The Small Penis Bible in the hopes that other men in his situation don’t feel so alone.
Speaking about why he decided to go public about his body, Ant explained that “anxiety grows in the dark.”
He added that 1 in 2 men in the UK are below the average penis size, and it’s time for them to speak out.
As the interview aired, This Morning viewers expressed their surprise that the interview was getting so frank.
Their shock increased when two cardboard cut outs were introduced on screen.

The visual aids were intended to show the difference in size between a micro-penis and the national average.
Even Eamonn declared to the camera men as they zoomed in on the cut outs: “I don’t think we need a close up, I think we can see from here.”
This Morning fans took to Twitter during Ant’s time on the show to discuss his interview.
One wrote: “Really??!!!! #ThisMorning do we really need to see a cardboard c***!!!”
While another added: “Scraping the barrel here #thismorning pure diagrams and everything. I’m alright thanks.”
“I think I’m in shock – but I couldn’t stop watching #thismorning,” confessed a third.

With another agreeing: “Mr ‘micro penis’ on #thismorning must have some big balls to expose himself like that!”
