First look at Eamonn and Ruth’s Hollywood debut in surprising film cameo

Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford will be making their Hollywood debut in a surprise film cameo.

The This Morning host have given a sneak peak of their scenes which will feature in new movie Fisherman’s Friends.

They were joined by A-lister James Purefoy, who also stars in the film, based on a real-life group of Cornish fisherman who are spotted by music executives.

Excited Eamonn said: "We’ve got a tiny, tiny little part in the show. We’re very excited to see it."

Eamonn and Ruth are actually playing themselves as they welcome the fisherman onto This Morning.

Eamonn explained: "Our role in the film involves the Fisherman’s Friends going on TV to sing the national anthem. But the anthem you end up singing is…"

Ruth added: "…the Cornish one."

The pair both have speaking parts as they introduce the group ahead of a performance of the national anthem on the Queen’s birthday.

However, the Fisherman’s Friends have other ideas as they start signing the Cornish anthem Trelawney live on air.

After the clip from the movie finished, Eamonn said: "I just want to say that wasn’t just our part, there’s a bit more."

Heaping praise on the presenters, James said: "That was a world exclusive – you were wonderful."

The A Knight’s Tale actor gave a synopsis of the movie, which is being released on March 15th.

James said: "I think this is the kind of film we in this country lap up. It’s a bunch of hairy a**ed fishermen who sing on the dock, completely based on a true story.

"They were sitting on the dock in Port Isaac, they would do it every Friday night to raise money for the IRL.

"One day some record company execs came down for a holiday, spotted them, signed them, and they made an album which went in at number seven.

"They sold 200,000 copies and ended up playing the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury."
