Ruth Langsford is said to be concerned about ‘upsetting’ her husband Eamonn Holmes if she returns to This Morning.
Ruth, 63, co-hosted the Friday edition of Loose Women with her husband, also 63, until they were replaced in 2020.
Eamonn has moved on to GB News, while Ruth remains with ITV.
Following Phillip Schofield’s resignation from This Morning and ITV after admitting to having an affair with a younger male colleague, Eamonn has taken aim at both ITV and his former colleague.
The GB News host has often called This Morning “toxic” and even sat down for an explosive interview in which he trashed Phillip and his former employment.
During his tirade, Eamonn labeled Phillip a “liar” and even dubbed Holly Willoughby a “big mouth.”
Ruth was reportedly invited by executives to return to This Morning, but she has been ‘very torn’ about the offer, according to a source.
There is no evidence, however, that Ruth was ever approached to return to This Morning.
“While obviously, Eamonn has burned his bridges with ITV, Ruth still works for them and wants to continue,” a source told Bella Magazine.
“She’s proud of her work on Loose Women, but she doesn’t want to be used as a scapegoat.”She is extremely devoted to her husband and would not want to irritate him. But she’s not saying no either; she’s just startled to be courted by them after everything that’s transpired.”
According to the insider, the show wants to’reassure fans that it’s a family operation’ by bringing in more ‘known faces’.
The Mirror stated in 2021 that Eamonn and Ruth were “blindsided” by being replaced on the blue sofa, as well as “furious and upset” about the axe, however they returned the following year to cover the summer break.
“We’ve hosted so many This Morning summers now, and we always look forward to it,” Ruth added. Summer weeks are always a lot of fun since they have a slightly different atmosphere than the rest of the year.
“People are frequently tuning in on their own vacations, so we look forward to hearing where people are and what they are doing for the summer.” We’ve been doing this since Jack was a baby.”
“Well, it’s the only time we really get to see each other properly, so yes!” Eamonn added. We both have fairly busy lives, so spending so much time together is quite unusual. So that has to be a good thing!”
