EAMONN Holmes will present Sky News' flagship breakfast programme Sunrise for the final time today after 11 years as anchor.

The Belfast presenter (56), signed a five-year deal to stay with Sky in 2013 amid reports he was being lined up to front ITV's troubled early morning show Daybreak.

However last month the presenter, who also hosts ITV's This Morning with his wife Ruth Langsford every Friday morning, confirmed his departure from the daily breakfast programme via a post on his Facebook page.

On Wednesday he posted: "The Sun sets for me on Sunrise tomorrow morning after 11 years. I hope you can join me for the last day."

Holmes has presented Sunrise since 2005, following his departure from ITV's GMTV, which he co-hosted for 12 years.
