The star spoke to Best Magazine about her ongoing role.

Ruth, 61, told the publication: “I’m still at ITV, with This Morning and Loose Women.”

She also heaped praise on husband Eamonn, 62, following his departure from the show.

I’m still at ITV

Ruth added: “I’m thrilled. It’s what he does best. He’s always been very entertaining on This Morning – Eamonn can turn his hand to anything.

“He’s a total news junkie. I’m very proud of him. Yes, no more This Morning together – but it doesn’t mean there aren’t other projects we can do together.”

ITV recently confirmed that Ruth will remain on This Morning.

“As a duo, Eamonn and Ruth have been part of the This Morning presenting team for the last 15 years and we thank Eamonn for all of his hard work and contribution to the show.”

They continued: “Ruth remains an important part of ITV Daytime both as a continuing member of the This Morning family and as an anchor presenter on Loose Women.”

During a discussion on Eamonn’s chronic illness, the star went on to explain the impact the condition is having on her husband.
