Eamonn Holmes was left slightly taken aback after wife Ruth Langsford let slip she was unaware of where Banbridge was located in the UK. The couple, who wed in 2010, regularly front This Morning together.

During yesterday’s episode, the 60-year-old TV veteran light-heartedly scolded Ruth, also 60, for her geographical ignorance.

But it was a viewer who took to Twitter and called out the couple and informed them they would now have to visit Banbridge once the lockdown is over.

The person in question wrote: “Now now @RuthieeL…. How very dare you @EamonnHolmes you’ll have to make sure you guys visit now … @theboulevardni awaits!! #Banbridge #NowYouKnow.”

In view of his one million followers, Eamonn replied: “Please forgive my wife’s ignorance …. she doesn’t get out much.”

The cheeky rebuttal comes after the pair were reading out messages on This Morning.

Ruth asked: “Where’s Banbridge?” as Eamonn gave her a quizzical look.

“Everybody knows where Banbridge is,” he stated bluntly.

She replied: “I don’t know where Banbridge is and nor does anyone in the gallery.”

A stunned Eamonn continued: “What! You don’t know where Banbridge is. Shout out to Banbridge.”

However, Ruth did not let her beau off the hook and asked him to let her know its whereabouts.

Eamonn explained: “It’s in County Down,” before he went on to read out a message from a nursery school in Banbridge.

He continued: “What am I going to say now that you’ve just ruined this.”

Banbridge is an area located in County Down in Northern Ireland.

Ruth later turned to her husband and said: “Are you alright now?” after Eamonn seemingly appeared flustered by his wife’s minor blunder.

The Irishman replied: “I’m going to bring you to Banbridge.”

She chuckled: “Good. I would love to go to Banbridge next time we’re allowed.”

The pair began dating in 1997 and welcomed their son Jack five years later.

Eamonn and Ruth will have been married for a decade next month, after tying the knot at Elvetham Hall in Hampshire.

He was previously married to Gabrielle, and they share three children: Declan, Rebecca and Niall.

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10am.
