Unable to fit into her some of her favourite clothes, she had to trade up to a size 14 for a while.

What has Eamonn Holmes said about Ruth’s weight battle?

Ruth’s hubby Eamonn Holmes hasn’t always been exactly supportive towards her when it comes to her weight.

The pair are famous for squabbling live on This Morning, and Eamonn’s made a few jibes about Ruth’s size.

In 2019 Ruth said she was trying out a new diet app that recommended she only ate 1,200 calories a day.

Eamonn butted in with: “That’s because you’re very fat – that’s why.”

Meanwhile last year Eamonn quipped that Ruth would look even better if she gave up alcohol.

He said: “Imagine how much more gorgeous you could be if you gave up booze.”

But a defiant Ruth hit back with: “Never going to happen, I don’t care now, I’m too old to worry.”
