They've been married for 14 years but now it's all over for Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, as the couple are splitting up.

A spokesperson told The Sun that their marriage has come to an end. It said: "Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have confirmed their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing.”

Earlier, a source had told MailOnline: "It’s a very sorry tale. They are both so loved by the British public, they won over so many people on This Morning which they hosted for more than a decade."

A spokesperson for Ruth confirmed to OK! that the statement to The Sun was true. OK! has also contacted Eamonn's team for comment.

Rumours of a potential split have been swirling for a while, but earlier this month, Eamonn took to Instagram to share a snap with his wife Ruth, at the time appearing to dismiss speculation.

The GB News presenter had previously sparked concerns about the state of his relationship after telling his followers he had "loads to think about".

However, it seemed Eamonn, 64, was keen to show unity with Ruth, 64. He shared a picture of the pair on his Instagram account, which boasts 796,000 followers.

The photo was originally posted by Entertainment Press Photographer Brett Cove, who had featured the former This Morning duo on his story.

The caption read: "MEMORIES 10 May 2018. The best in the business... @ruthlangsford @eamonnholmes."

It marked the first time in a while that Eamonn has posted a picture with Loose Women host Ruth, which had previously raised eyebrows among their fans.

The couple hadn't been seen together for several months, leading to speculation.

Rumours were further fuelled by one of Eamonn's recent posts, featuring the Irish star in a thoughtful pose with his head resting on his hands. He captioned the black-and-white picture: "A lot to think about ..... one of those days."

Ruth had previously openly shared her "worst fears" about a potential split from Eamonn during an episode of Loose Women.

The discussion was centred around whether being cheated on with a younger person is the ultimate betrayal. Each star of the show gave their opinion, leading Ruth to disclose her deepest fear - that GB News presenter Eamonn might leave her for someone his own age.

While some panellists were devastated at the thought of their partners cheating with a younger woman, Ruth provided a different viewpoint. "See I think, people go, 'Oh, you'd hate it if you were dumped for a younger model,'" she started.

"I go, 'No, I would hate it because...' then I could do the whole cliche thing, 'Oh, Eamonn is such a cliche, he's going with a 25-year-old, how sad.'

"But then I think, 'No, the worst thing for me is if he went off with someone the same age'. I think that is harder than being dumped for someone younger. That's my worst fear," reports the Express.
