When Ruth Langsford and husband Eamonn Holmes take over our TV screens from Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield as hosts of This Morning or on other shows, the laughs just keep on rolling…
The pair, who do every Fridays plus have just covered this Easter holiday week, have had some classic gems over the years so we decided to bring out their best bits…
Eamonn isn’t shy when it comes to discussing their love life – or lack of it! When magician Dynamo asked Ruth to pick a card when she ‘felt the urge’ on This Morning, the presenter said, ‘You haven’t felt the urge in ages, darling.’
The TV couple, both 59, had This Morning viewers in hysterics when Eamonn got his foot stuck in a football net during a dating segment on the show.
RUTH STADDLES ANTON ON STRICTLY
Strictly Come Dancing viewers weren’t the only ones left open-mouthed when Ruth accidentally mounted her dance partner, Anton Du Beke, after dancing the Paso Doble – as Eamonn was caught looking horrified in the audience. Oops!
Keen to try some new things, Eamonn and Ruth had a go at sumo wrestling alongside 28st fighter, Sharon Alexander. But Ruth soon ran into trouble as she struggled to squat in her tight pencil skirt!
While quizzing Celebrity Big Brother star Marnie Simpson, after she flashed her co-star, Saira Khan, Eamonn said to the 27-year-old, ‘Just show us what you did to her.’ Nice.
IN THE BUFF
For an interview with a naked personal trainer for TV show Do the Right Thing, Ruth said, ‘If you can’t beat them, join them,’ and took off her kit! She said, ‘I’m enjoying this. I feel free and easy.’
SPICING THINGS UP
The pair swapped their usual mid-morning TV slot for a racier project called Eamonn & Ruth’s 7 Year Itch. This saw the married couple exploring a bondage dungeon and having sex therapy sessions. Saucy!
