The pair were just about to talk to Liz Kershaw and Nick Ferrari about today’s news headlines.

Liz spoke about turning 62 on Thursday (July 30) and Eamonn and Ruth were stunned by how great she looked.

Ruth then asked: “I wonder how old the Loose Women are collectively, what do you reckon?”

Eamonn replied: “I wouldn’t like to say.”

What did Eamonn Holmes say?

After Ranvir explained what was coming up on the programme, Eamonn said: “What a line-up Ruth. What a line-up.”

You’re in the hole and you can’t dig yourself out.

However, Janet hit back: “I’m not happy about the age thing.”

Eamonn said: “But if I had known you were there, I wouldn’t have said it.”

Janet told him: “No Eamonn, you’re in the hole and you can’t dig yourself out. Too late now.”

Eamonn said: “I should have said Gloria [Hunniford] shouldn’t have I really.”

Janet replied: “That’s even worse!”

After that, Ruth told him: “Yeah stop now, stop now.”

Meanwhile, earlier in the show, viewers were in hysterics over Eamonn’s relationship advice to a caller.

Lucy phoned in to complain that her partner hasn’t yet proposed to her.

She said her partner’s recent excuse for not getting married was that they’re paying for a new roof.
