What did Ruth say?

Ruth, who lost her sister last year, told her co-stars: "Personally I don’t believe in ghosts and spirits.

"I believe in a higher being and spirituality things, but I don’t believe I have a guardian angel as such."

She continued: "I saw a white feather in the garden that was kind of stuck to the brickwork and I had that moment where I thought, 'Is that my sister?'"

"I just had that notion because I want it to be obviously, and then I do that, 'No it’s not your sister, it’s just a birds nest in the gutter above.'"

Gloria Hunniford told her: "It doesn’t matter, because if it brings you comfort about your sister, or if it brings me comfort about [her late daughter] Caron, it’s fine."

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

Sharing the devastating news to her social media pages at the time, Ruth said: "My lovely sis Julia has sadly died after a very long illness.

"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."
