It was filmed before lockdown

Ruth Langsford has responded to comments about her not wearing a face mask in a gym video.

The This Morning presenter re-posted a throwback clip showing her lifting weights with her personal trainer Frank.

However, after comments about her not wearing a mask amid the coronavirus pandemic, Ruth insisted the footage was filmed before lockdown.

What did Ruth Langsford say?

On the post, Ruth told her fans: “For those asking… I’m not wearing a mask because this is a THROWBACK….

“@fitwithfrank and I filmed this way before lockdown!”

For those asking… I’m not wearing a mask because this is a THROWBACK.

Meanwhile, in the video, Ruth is seen holding weights in her workout gear.

Frank explains the benefits of weight training, which includes toning “bingo wings, muffin tops, tummy, booty”.

Frank wrote: “Do you lift weights? Here’s a #throwback video to the time our lovely @ruthlangsford asked about #weighttraining and why it might be good.

“I answered with ‘bone density’ and ‘fat loss’ which covered the highlights but in truth I think there are farrrrr more benefits.” [Sic]

He added: “If you’ve not tried weight training, certainly look into it as I strongly believe that at any age it can have a hugely positive impact on both your #physical and #mentalhealth.”
