The couple, who present This Morning together, were watching an episode of Channel 4’s Sex in Lockdown: Keep S******g and Carry On, which was looking in to how the UK kept things exciting during the pandemic.
Spicing things up
One particular segment of the show revealed the household objects that people have been finding inventive uses for. Presenter Anna Richardson said that the top household items that people had been using through lockdown included a hoover, a spatula and a feather duster.
But Ruth had one better, confessing that she had once found an alternative use for a tumble drier.
While watching the show, Ruth turned to her husband, saying: “My friend had the old style spin dryer that used to move around, so you’d have to sit on it to keep it still.
“And it was quite fun.”
Ruth’s shock confession
A confused looking Eamonn said: “And she told you that?”
Ruth replied: “We used to sit on it together.”
Eamonn’s jaw dropped in disbelief, with Ruth just quietly chuckling at his shock.
She then went in to the kitchen to bring back a household item of their own, coming back in to the lounge with what looked like a lemon squeezer.
Viewers loved seeing a bit of post-watershed Ruth, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.
