He is usually a housewives’ favourite.
But Eamonn Holmes has received fierce criticism for his recent interview with Julia Keys – by the scorned woman herself.
The 57-year-old has slammed the veteran host for his approach to their recent on-screen debate, which aired on ITV earlier this month.
During it, she discussed her relationship with estranged husband Richard Keys and his alleged salacious affair with a lover half his age, Lucie Rose.
However, she claims the Irish star, 58, had a secret agenda to protect the ex-Sky Sports star, with whom he is long-standing friends.
In the clash, Eamonn claimed there were "two sides to every story" and that "for men to cheat there has to be a woman".
The former GMTV star, who left the mother of his first three children before marrying Ruth Langsford , also claimed not all men were "horrible pigs".
"I felt like I was the accused, like I was the one on trial," Julia told The Mail on Sunday .
"It was as if I was being blamed for Richard’s affair, which is not what I had expected. The implication was my husband’s infidelity was my fault.
"It felt like Eamonn had an agenda. [His] hostility made me feel as if both my professional credibility and my personal integrity were being challenged."
Detailing how she often spent time apart from Keys as he worked for Al Jazeera in Dubai, she then added: "Eamonn seemed to be using my absences as justification for Richard’s affair.
"That’s a script straight out of my book. Trying to justify infidelity and blame the betrayed partner and not the adulterer.
"It makes women feel disempowered and guilty."
The Mirror have contacted a representative for Mr Holmes, but are yet to receive a response.
