Ruth, who is married to her fellow This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes, added the hashtag "missingmum" to her touching post.

Fans were immediately sympathetic to Ruth, sending their love. Others suggested it would be okay for Joan to join their household 'bubble', but Ruth has not responded.

The presenter has previously spoken about how tough it is for her to be apart from her mum Joan during the pandemic.

Mother's Day was tough for Ruth

On Mother's Day in March she went to her mum's house just so that the pair could wave hello to each other.

She shared a moving video of the moment she gave her mum a quick kiss through the window.

"Locked down but not forgotten! Happy Mother's Day Mum... love her!" Ruth wrote.

While she is clearly missing being with family, one thing looking up for Ruth is her new hair-do.
