Ruth Langsford breaks silence for first time since Eamonn Holmes divorce announcement

Ruth Langsford has broken her silence amid the news that she has split from husband Eamonn Holmes. The Loose Women panellist, 64, pointedly chose to ignore the stories about her marriage as she shared a video while walking her dog Maggie.

To this she added the text: "Enjoying the little bit of sunshine we got today!" Ruth then shared a sweet clip of Maggie cuddling him to her mum Joan, writing that the pooch was getting some "Grandma love."

It comes after news of their separation surfaced Saturday 25 May.

While neither Ruth nor Eamonn have spoken out on the news themselves or given a reason for the split, it has also been reported that work commitments had the pair going in separate directions. However, a representative confirmed to The Sun: "Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have confirmed their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing."

The confirmation of their divorce followed on from swirling rumours about the couple, who haven't been pictured together in months. GB News presenter Eamonn previously sparked concerns about the state of his relationship after telling his followers he had "loads to think about".

And following the news breaking over the weekend, it's now been reported that Eamonn will speak out on the split when he returns to work at GB News on Monday morning.

And insider told The Sun: "Eamonn is always frank on camera and knows it will be odd for him to discuss the day’s news without mentioning his split so he’ll say a few words. He is putting on a brave face and will be the true professional he always is. Focusing on work will be a welcome distraction."

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Ruth will be taking a step back from Loose Women this week and will not be appearing on the show.
