The TV star had previously been seen using a walking stick to get around the This Morning studio during stints on the show.

Ruth had to host a segment on her own, explaining that it was taking her husband longer to get around.

During a feature on chronic pain, Ruth told viewers: “It’s ironic now that he is not here, because he’s had to nip to the loo, because it takes him so long walking and he is on his way back.

“It takes him longer to walk, but he is here now,” she said.

The couple, who have been married for over a decade, are set to return to This Morning this summer to host.

Ruth and Eamonn will front the daytime show for seven weeks during the school holidays, taking over from regular presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

It comes months after they were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary on their Friday slot.

Ruth told the publication that she was looking forward to it.
