Viewers blast “unprofessional” Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford after awkward This Morning argument

The atmosphere turned tense

| Updated:

Husband and wife Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes aren’t shy of bickering on This Morning, but today’s show saw them genuinely fuming at each other as they argued live on air.

Things turned awkward between the couple, both 59, as they interviewed selfie star Karen Danczuk about her pay-per-view photo site, and they clearly disagreed with each other…

As they chatted to Karen, the ex-wife of former MP of Rochdale Simon Danczuk, Eamonn ended up shouting Ruth down as he tried to make his point, leaving his wife looking furious.

Ruth began questioning Karen’s photo website, which charges viewers up to £150 to see sexy pictures of her in lingerie.

Karen explained: “I wouldn’t say they’re erotic, they’re what you would see on Instagram.”

Ruth went on to argue that Karen was “scantily clad” in the pictures and Eamonn then cut in, saying there was nothing wrong with it and that Karen is a politician.

It was then that they turned on each other, with Ruth insisting: “She’s not a politician.”

Clearly riled by his wife’s correction, Eamonn sniped: “Excuse me?” and went on to explain that Karen was educated in politics.

The air then turned even frostier when Eamonn compared Karen’s web pics to Loose Women’s past campaigns for body confidence.

He ranted: “If it was on Loose Women you’d say it’s empowering!”

Ruth, a regular host on Loose Women, continued to look tense as the interview was awkwardly wrapped up.

Viewers were soon tweeting about Ruth and Eamonn’s feisty episode.

One wrote: “I think Deidre needs to sort out Eamonn and Ruth 🙄🙄 you can actually see the hate in his eyes towards her today 😂 #ThisMorning.”

Another viewer branded them ‘unprofessional’, adding: “Eamonn and Ruth are making watching #ThisMorning difficult 😠 These two need to be more professional and keep their ‘bickering’ off camera and stop acting like 2 year olds!”
