Eamonn Holmes reveals wife Ruth Langsford can be jealous and 'spoil the whole day'

The couple have been together for 22 years

Eamonn Holmes has opened up about his relationship with wife Ruth Langsford, saying he doesn't get jealous over attention from fans but she does.

The This Morning stars, who've been together for 22 years, are known for being flirty with each other on screen when they co-present the ITV show.

Speaking to OK! magazine at This Morning Live, the couple opened up about their relationship and how they deal with jealousy and the attention they receive from fans.

'There was a fella who gave you a love card today, he was shaking', Eamonn said about Ruth's interaction with a fan.

'It's really interesting - the reactions when people meet you', Ruth said.

'Some are really cool, like: "Hi, good to meet you." But others are literally quivering, aren't they? He was like: "Can I have a hug because I really love watching you..."'

The couple have one child together, Jack

Eamonn added that if the situation was the other way around, Ruth would have been jealous.

'Now, you see, if that had of happened to me, you would have been jealous,' he said.

'I took that in my stride and thought what a nice thing someone did, even at your age, someone finds you attractive, but you would have been jealous and spoilt the whole day', he continued.

Ruth then jokingly admitted to being jealous of one lady who approached Eamonn at the event: 'There was one woman who I thought was getting a bit too close to you.

'I saw her kissing you on the cheek and I did have to give her a little look.'

Asked if it was a 75-year-old lady who Eamonn was talking to, she said: 'Yes, that one. Even her I had to give her a little look like: "You can look but you can't touch!"'

Ruth and Eamonn tied the knot back in 2010, after welcoming their first child, Jack, in 2002. They've been together for over two decades, getting together after Eamonn's divorce from his first wife Gabrielle.
