Earlier this year, Ruth suffered a devastating family loss after her sister Julia died.

Ruth revealed her sister had passed away in June.

She wrote on social media at the time: "My lovely sis Julia has sadly died after a very long illness. My heart is completely broken.

"She was the kindest and most gentle soul and I will miss her forever. As I am sure you will appreciate I need to take time to grieve with my family. Thank you for your understanding."

Ruth took a break from TV to grieve with her family.

Her husband Eamonn Holmes presented This Morning the following day alongside Rylan Clark-Neal - and teared up as he spoke about Ruth and Julia.

Last month, Ruth walked off This Morning upset during a phone-in segment on anxiety and depression.

One viewer called in to ask how she can cope with her society anxiety and depression, which Ruth's sister Julia suffered from.

Eamonn explained to viewers: "This is featured in Ruth's life, she's upset now and has had to leave the studio because of her sister, who was a chronic depressive.

"No matter what kind of help and medication was there, it didn't really make much difference."
