This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford was taking no prisoners during Friday’s edition of the programme, before it was pulled off the air. Ruth, 61, addressed recent criticism surrounding her behaviour towards husband Eamonn Holmes.

It’s banter!

Ruth, who also anchors Loose Women, revealed that a social media user had messaged her after she appeared to act in a poor manner towards her spouse, also 61, during an appearance on This Morning earlier this week.

The mum-of-one and husband Eamonn returned to presenting the show during the Easter holidays, just days after he had been treated in hospital for severe pain.

Eamonn has been suffering from chronic pain in recent days that has also seen him suffer from insomnia, announcing that he wouldn’t take any pain medication on a work night.

Addressing the backlash she received, Ruth said: “To the viewer who sent me a message yesterday saying I was vile to my husband – it’s banter!”

Joking about their life behind closed doors, Eamonn responded: “That was my mother. She does think you’re vile.”

“She doesn’t, hello Mrs Holmes,” joked Ruth as she spoke down the camera.

The viewer was referring to several conversations between the couple about Eamonn’s ongoing pain.

While fronting the show, he has been open with the millions of viewers at home as he discussed his ongoing health issues.

During Friday’s episode that was taken off the air following the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, Eamonn managed to get his own back at his wife.

The Irish broadcaster said that his wife had “horse teeth” while live on air.

During an interview with Canadian comedian, Katherine Ryan, Eamonn went on to get another joke over his wife.

Ruth appeared to slip up when discussing Katherine’s appearance on The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer, when she forgot the name of the presenter.

“I watched you on Celebrity Bake Off and it’s tense, and then Matt Baker comes along and starts talking to you, you must have just wanted to tell him to go away?” she asked Katherine.

Noticing his wife’s mistake, Eamonn quipped: “Matt Lucas, not Matt Baker.”

Stunned by Eamonn’s jibe, Ruth asked: “What did I say?”

“You said Matt Baker,” he responded.

“No, I didn’t, Matt Lucas? Did I say Matt Baker? Oh, I’m sorry, it’s Bake Off, it’s Matt Lucas,” Ruth said as she corrected herself.

While noticing that Ruth appeared to be embarrassed by her mistake, Katherine quickly added support, saying: “It’s a baking show, you can be forgiven.”

Eamonn has also used his social media to update fans on his condition during the early hours of the morning.

Taking to his Twitter page, he penned: “Come on Eamonn, let’s give this sleep a serious Go…..

“Surely I can do this? No medication during a working week but roll on Friday night.”

He went on to add: “May you find an escape in sleep tonight. #ChronicPain.

“Deep breath ….and relax. Goodnight Tweeters and thanks for being there.”

Eamonn recently underwent an MRI scan to discover the cause of his chronic condition, but is seemingly yet to receive a diagnosis from medical professionals.

Yesterday he gave another update on his Twitter page as he thanked fans for their good wishes over the news he is to become a grandfather.

He wrote: ‘I have been very bad at answering and acknowledging so many ‘Grandpa’ good wishes today.

“Please forgive and understand how draining and debilitating this Back pain I’m suffering is.

“I’m drained. Had steroid injections today which will hopefully turn the tide. #ChronicPain.”

This Morning airs on ITV weekdays at 10am.
