Eamonn Holmes has shared how he was pulled over by police on the way to work this morning (March 23).
Whist it caused some confusion for his 1 million followers, Eamonn shared that he was stopped due to a rise in car thefts in his area and was actually ‘delighted’ it took place. Eamonn Holmes is thought to live with his wife Ruth Langsford in a six-bedroom mansion in Weybridge and moved from ITV’s This Morning to GB News at the beginning of this year.
Police wanted to ensure that Eamonn wasn’t driving a stolen car and while many of his followers said that being pulled over would have angered them, Eamonn said the police officers were ‘an absolute credit to Surrey police’.

He told his fans: “Pulled over by the police on the way into work and delighted to be so. A lot of car thefts in my area and they were just checking that the car I was in wasn’t one of them… 2 young officers in their 20’s and an absolute credit [email protected]”
Followers like @ZoeSomebody queried why the police couldn’t have scanned and checked his plate without stopping him and another @01___Tina added: “I wouldn’t be happy to be pulled and checked if I had tax car insurance and doing the speed limit time wasting rather than doing real crime ! Catch the bad guys rather than wasting time for people that just want to get home after a hard days work.”
Other fans agreed with Eamonn complimenting the force, with @simon13bs writing: “Thanks for complimenting officers who were proactively patrolling,trying preventing crime. In these days of negative stories it’s important. Cars stopped for this reason often results in arrest of burglars,car thieves,drug dealers,disqualify drivers,people wanted on warrant etc.!
