Eamonn Holmes is an Elvis fan

He is also a co-presenter with his wife Ruth Langsford on This Morning, 10.30am weekdays on ITV, which has been nominated in the National Television Awards.

ELVIS PRESLEY: Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite (Sony)

My brother and I would get my father’s car then cruise around Belfast, sunglasses on, sideburns, playing this on the eight-track stereo.

It’s Las Vegas Elvis in his prime.

FLEETWOOD MAC: Rumours (Warner)

The song Dreams had the words “Thunder only happens when it’s raining” and I remember in 1977 around exam time there was an awful lot of rain in Ireland.

I’d look out the window with this playing, thinking how grown-up I was.

It’s haunting and wonderful.

THE CORRS: Talk On Corners (Lava/Atlantic)

There’s a lovely song on this, I Never Loved You Anyway, which is full of spite.

It’s a good reaction when you’ve been dumped.

The Corrs came along at the same time as Riverdance and popularised Irish sounds while being very modern.

JOHNNY CASH: The Man Comes Around (Mercury)

A legend.

I love to hear artists record other artists’ songs and Ruth and I had a track from this, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, sung at our wedding.

I saw Cash in concert in 1978 and it was amazing.

CARO EMERALD: Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor (Dramatico)

I’ve interviewed Caro a few times and seen her in concert. She’s sexy and jazzy.

There’s a seductive way about her that puts you in a good mood.

JOHN BARRY: THE COLLECTION (Silva Screen)

Film is an escape for me and I’m emotionally stirred by the music quite easily.

An amazing composer who wrote Goldfinger and Midnight Cowboy.
