Ruth Langsford has said she feels sexy in her 60s because husband Eamonn Holmes has helped her to accept her “wobbly bits”.

The TV presenter couple have recently been dropped from their regular weekly roles at This Morning, but Langsford said that as far as their relationship went, things were still looking rosy.

She told Closer magazine: “I definitely feel sexy at 60, but a big part of this is thanks to my husband.”

The 60-year-old Loose Women star said that her 61-year-old husband made her feel better about photos of herself that she didn’t like by telling her he thought she looked great.

Langsford said: “Eamonn makes me feel sexy. He tells me ‘You look fantastic, I think you're really sexy, I fancy you’ and that's great. He definitely boosts my confidence.”

She explained that she didn’t have Botox or fillers, but despite not being any different to her other friends of the same age who hadn’t had any work done, it could be tough constantly seeing herself in the public eye.

Revealing that her confidence is “not that high”, she said she might not like some things about her appearance, but she had accepted them.

She said: “If I'm honest, do I like my wobbly bits? No I don't but I accept them. Of course I don't look in the mirror and say, ‘I love you cellulite’.”

Langsford and Holmes were recently told that they would be replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary in the Friday This Morning presenting slot.

However, in their final Friday episode, the couple showed there were no hard feelings towards their colleague Hammond as they asked viewers to be kind to the new presenters.

Holmes said: "You won’t be watching us anymore on a Friday, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary will be here on Fridays from here on in.

"Please we would ask you to be as nice and lovely to them, friends of ours as they are, we're very close to Alison and she has been to us for the past 15 years.

"We appreciate all of the love you have sent to us today, we send it all back to you, have a very merry Christmas, it’s been lovely having you and I think we will see everybody again."
