As they started the show, Eamon told wife Ruth Langsford that his fans had been in touch on Twitter to congratulate him on the milestone but that many thought it had been 30 years.

She quipped: "People actually follow that and know these things about you ?"

He replied: "They don't know anything. It's actually 31 years.

"I came in here expecting balloons, I expected a cake, but there's no commemoration."

As he introduced a clip from the start of his career, he said: "We're going back in time now, see if you can recognise this man pulling up outside the Crossroads motel 31 years ago this very day".

Ruth laughed as the clip played which showed a youthful Eamonn wearing a questionable jumper.

She even got a bit jealous about the female guest, Jill Richards, putting her hand on Eamonn's shoulder.

"She got a bit touchy feely with you, wasn't she?," Ruth joked.

As they showed the picture of him reading the news, Eamonn said: "Stop those pictures! That's enough of that nonsense!

"That's very cruel, that's victimisation, that's bullying in the workplace. Oh my goodness me."

As Ruth laughed, he said: "Happy anniversary to me".

Meanwhile, later in the show Eamonn got VERY close to Ola Jordan as she danced with him in the studio and joked about making Ruth 'jealous'.

Ruth is partnered with Anton Du Beke and James and Ola were giving her a few tips ahead of this weekend's Halloween special of the BBC reality show.

Things took a hilarious turn when former Strictly professionals were asked to show how they would demonstrate different emotions on the dance floor.

"Oh, Eamonn and Ola, I can see that now – Strictly Come Dancing 2018," he added.

Viewers found the segment hilarious with one fan writing on Twitter: "Great to see Eamonn shaking those hips with Ola Jordan. I think Ruth will have to show him a few more groovy moves though!"
