In November it was reported that the broadcaster quit after he and his wife Ruth Langsford were removed from their regular Friday time slot on This Morning.
Yesterday it was announced that he will start his new position at the controversial channel at the beginning of next year, where he will present a new breakfast programme with former Sunrise co-host Isabel Webster.
Commenting on the move, Holmes said GB News is “one of the most exciting” start-ups yet, adding that it is “just the kind of shake-up the industry needs”.
In a statement, an ITV spokeswoman said Langsford “remains an important part” of the channel’s daytime offering - “both as a member of the This Morning family and as an anchor presenter on Loose Women”.
“We would like to wish Eamonn all of the very best in his new role.
“As a duo, Eamonn and Ruth have been part of the This Morning presenting team for the last 15 years and we thank Eamonn for all of his hard work and contribution to the show,” they added.
