Let’s face it, Eamonn Holmes is not one to hold his tongue. The outspoken This Morning presenter isn’t afraid to share his opinions – and even when on live TV, he makes no bones about voicing them!

But the TV host was left a little red-faced on yesterday’s episode of the show. Live on air, outspoken Eamonn was caught making sarcastic comments about the weight of the Loose Women...

He and Ruth had just completed a live-link from Hollywood, and were set to link to the Loose Women as they do every episode.

The couple were just discussing big Hollywood stars Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. So following the comment, Ruth introduced the Loose ladies, continuing, “Talking about big stars, and they are big, these women are stars…”

But the sentence didn’t quite go to plan for poor Ruth, as Eamonn stepped in shushing his wife, and sarcastically joked, “Stop it, some of them have slimmed down a bit now.”

The ladies response…

Awkwardly, the Loose Women panel then popped up on screen from the ITV studio. And Coleen Nolan was keen to show her mock outrage at Eamonn’s weight jibe. As always, Ruth was quick to defend her pals from her husband’s comments. After shushing him, she said, “Coleen, don’t…rise above it, rise above it.”

But Loose Women co-host Kaye Adams encouraged a jibe back from Coleen, saying “Go Coleen, go!”

But it seemed Coleen was happy to let the remark go, greeting the pair only with a sarcastic, “Well, hello you two!”

Thankfully, all appeared to be forgiven following the awkward moment. Coleen quickly went on to introduce what we could expect on the upcoming episode of Loose Women.

Eamonn and Ruth are no stranger to the Loose Women seats, as Ruth is often a host on the daytime show. Eamonn himself even appeared on the programme back in May, for a special episode featuring the ladies’ partners.

We’re sure the panel are well aware of what they can expect from cheeky Eamonn nowadays…
