Ruth’s long-standing television career

The special broadcast celebrated 20 years of Loose Women and focused on where its panellists had worked before joining the show.

Despite being a well-loved presenter for years, Ruth previously admitted she almost quit her TV career after her beloved sister Julia’s death.

The star sadly lost her sister last year when Julia took her own life.

Speaking to Best magazine, Ruth explained: “Following my sister Julia’s death last June, I didn’t feel I could ever go back to work again.

“It seemed wrong to be cheery on screen, when, inside, my heart was breaking.

“I just thought being ‘happy’ would be a lie – and disrespectful to my only sibling. I had no motivation or desire to be in the public eye.”

Sharing her loss on social media at the time, Ruth penned: “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.”
