Recalling the moment Jack wanted a drum kit years ago, Eamonn said: “I said, ‘no you’re not doing drums.’

“I went to Belfast one weekend and I came back and what was set up in our sitting room?”

Ruth replied: “A drum kit that mummy bought him.”

My life has been ruined because my own son is a drummer.

Eamonn said: “What sort of message does that send out to children? That the father has no authority?”

Ruth replied: “You do. You just didn’t happened to be there that weekend.”

He later said: “My life has been ruined because my own son is a drummer.”

Ruth Langsford hits back at This Morning viewers

Meanwhile, earlier in the show, Ruth hit back after a viewer accused her of “dismissing” Eamonn.

Eamonn read out one tweet which said: “I love the way Ruth treats Eamonn and he just takes it…”

Ruth cut in: “How do I treat you?”

Eamonn said: “Just get on with it, whatever, whatever,” to which Ruth laughed: “Yeah like now… just get on with it now.”

He then read out another tweet, which said: “I love the way Ruth dismisses Eamonn’s opinions and he takes it in good humour.”
