The actor, 58, was on the programme earlier today (Tuesday, May 26) to chat about how he has been spending lockdown at his farm home in Dorset.
What did Martin say?
Ruth said: “How’s lockdown been for you and [your wife] Philippa? Obviously beautiful, idyllic surroundings we’re seeing.”
Martin began, “Well…” but then his video link froze.
Eamonn groaned with disappointment as the technical hiccup brought the interview grinding to a halt.
It then started working again and the chat resumed. Martin explained: “It isn’t too bad for me. I’m getting lots of jobs done, the garden’s never looked better.
“I’m mending bits of fences and gates and things, but the uncertainty isn’t very nice at all and…”
The video froze again and Eamonn, in a bid to keep viewers entertained, said: “I just wonder, when he unfreezes, what Martin’s philosophy with his farm is.”
The video link did resume shortly after, allowing the interview to continue.
Elsewhere on This Morning, Ruth feared she had injured her back during a live yoga session she took part in.
Instructor Finlay, who performs ‘kilt yoga’, explained how he cycles to remote locations to do yoga and posts it online for people to follow during lockdown.
Ruth tried some of the positions Finlay demonstrated. But she visibly struggled at several points. Afterwards, she admitted she “I might have done [her] back in”, adding: “I’ll go home and stretch it out.”
