The couple are filming a sex-based documentary for Channel 5...

Ruth Langsford looked worlds away from her usual attire as she dressed in head-to-toe leather and brandished a whip at husband Eamonn Holmes.

The ITV presenter has been educating herself on the world of S&M for new Channel 5 documentary, The Seven Year Itch, which she filmed alongside Eamonn to mark their seven-year wedding anniversary. The sex-based show examines how kinky sex can spice up marriages.

It appears that Ruth took a very hands on approach to her research, which Eamonn proudly teased to his Twitter followers ahead of its airing on Thursday, September 21.

Sharing a short clip on the micro-blogging site, Eamonn wrote, “U gotta watch this ..Thurs 9pm @channel5_tv ….Our new show The 7 year itch. Here’s a taste of @RuthieeL getting all #Strictly on it.”

The video sees Ruth walk into a room dressed in skintight leather dominatrix gear and holding firmly onto a whip.

She then growls to her husband, “Well, get used to it, slave.” Things are gonna change around here.”

Eamonn then says, “Darling that’s shocking!” before the Loose Women star giggles and cracks her whip.

Fans of the famous presenting duo said they couldn’t wait to tune in, while one quipped, “Oh wow! Will this effect the way I look at you both forever?”

The couple’s research also saw them visiting a sex party organised by notorious events company Killing Kittens.
