He told journalist Rodney Edwards on the Human Nature podcast: ‘He came there and shook it up.
‘He was the right man in the right place at the right time. And so far, so good.

He said: ‘I think on BBC in the morning, Dan Walker is a very very good presenter, probably more in the mould of what I… I’m somewhere in between Dan Walker and Piers Morgan to be quite truthful.’
Eamonn added: ‘But I think it takes all sorts, and I think we should have a choice as to what to watch and if you don’t like it there’s another channel so switch over.
‘But I think Piers has been the saviour of Breakfast television, yes.’
Piers responded on Twitter to Eamonn’s kind words, saying ‘thanks’ to his ITV colleague.
