Speaking to comedian Shane Todd, 31, on his podcast Tea With Me, Eamonn was asked about the time he spoke to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on GMTV, and then spoke about the worst This Morning guests he’s ever had.
The fan asked: “Can I ask what Eamonn’s memories are of having The Rock on GMTV 15 years ago?”
Eamonn replied: “He’s a very approachable fella.
“You have this problem, often with Americans, they’re surrounded by their people and that’s a nightmare.”
He then went on to tell Shane about a recent celebrity guest on the show, and explained they had complained seconds before they were supposed to go on air.
Eamonn said: “Two of them came in recently and they said seconds before going on air, ‘We can’t sit on that couch’, ‘I can’t sit on that couch.'”
Eamonn then added: “I said, ‘What do you mean you can’t sit on that couch?’
“Her people said, ‘She’s allergic to certain fabrics,’ and they said, ‘Nobody told us there was a sofa’.”
He said: “I said, ‘What’s the problem?’, and it’s seconds to go on air, and they went, ‘Well miss so-and-so can’t sit on this couch because she’s got allergies to these fabrics and no-one told us there would be a couch’.”
Eamonn said: “I said, ‘What are you allergic to?’ and she said, ‘I’m allergic to everything except linen.’
“I said, ‘Oh. It’s your lucky day because that couch is pure linen. I have these allergies myself. That is flown in from Northern Ireland.'”
Eamonn continued to Shane: “I didn’t know what the couch was made of.
“She didn’t walk away itching or anything. But some of them are so woke.”
Eamonn recently come under fire during a rant with presenter Alice Beer as he discussed the wild theory that 5G is helping spread coronavirus.
Despite the lack of evidence, Eamonn refused to say it wasn’t true, and the show 419 complaints.
A representative for Ofcom later said: “We are assessing this programme in full as a priority.”
Eamonn later said: “There is no connection between the present national health emergency and 5G and to suggest otherwise would be wrong and indeed it could be possibly dangerous.”
This Morning continues tomorrow at 10am on ITV.
