Indeed, the couple do commute separately, with Ruth explaining the reason to Platinum Magazine last year. “We tried going together once and it was an absolute nightmare because he made me half an hour late,” Ruth revealed at the time.
“He was saying, ‘What do you need to be in at 8am for?’ He’s a ship-up-10-minutes-before kind of guy. That’s where we are absolutely on opposite ends of the scale.”

One said: “#ThisMorning goes back to being a grown-up show when Ruth and Eamonn are on…”
A second replied: “@EamonnHolmes you created TV Gold with Dr Khan on This Morning. Your deadpan face and his initial bewilderment followed by “Ruth” was classic. Had to rewind and watch it several times it was so funny. Classic Eamonn at his best. What a laugh. Just what the Dr ordered. #Ruthgate.”
