Eamonn Holmes: This Morning host issues apology for wife Ruth Langsford’s ‘ignorance’

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.

Tonight, she shared a video of her banging a pan as she put on a brave face for the nationwide clap.

She praised the pair for “always finding ways of lifting our spirits & staying strong even when they can see me wobbling”.

Kate went on to say: “It’s so wonderful to see little green shoots of hope that this dreadful disease is easing and that hopefully soon we might all be able to see each other again and hug our nearest and dearest.

“But the journey for me and my family seems to be far from over as everyday my heart sinks as I learn new & devastating ways this virus has more battles for Derek to fight.

“But he is still HERE & so there is still hope. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who will be affected by this, not just for the next few weeks but for the foreseeable future.

“That will be the case for many who have suffered from the disease, but also the front line workers who have been helping to treat the worst affected.”

Kate went on to say urge those affected to “stick together far beyond the end of lockdown”.

The Smooth Radio presenter concluded her post thanking her fans for their ongoing support.

Earlier today, her colleague Piers Morgan spoke with Jo Tillbrook on Good Morning Britain, who has recovered from the virus after spending 42 days in hospital.

The Covid-19 survivor spoke alongside her husband Clive, who detailed how difficult it was to see his wife battle the virus.

“You can’t see your loved one, you have to just muddle through I guess.”

Kate has been on a break from Good Morning Britain during her husband’s health battle.

Andrea McLean: Loose Women star opens up on ‘personal’ experience which led to breakdown

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Loose Women presenter Andrea McLean, 50, has detailed the reasons behind her breakdown, which she suffered last year, in a candid interview. The star told The Mirror about how a painful “personal” experience made her feel like she had to “dim her lights” at the time.

Andrea first opened up about her issues while hosting the ITV daytime show, but has now admitted she didn’t mean to talk about it on-screen.

She explained: “I didn’t mean to talk it about on air. I had been off air for six weeks and then when I went back on it slipped out.

“I’m not ashamed of it and I’ve learnt so much. I think people were surprised as they think, ‘She doesn’t look like the type of person who has a breakdown’.

“But what does a person look like? It is someone who is a people-pleaser, someone who tries too hard to do everything and can’t say ‘no’ and holds everything in. That’s exactly what I am and that is why it happened.”

While addressing the situation, Andrea clarified that the incident was “personal” and not professional.

The mum-of-two said: “I’ve had to make myself small through a lot of my life and dim my lights.

“I don’t want to do that any more. There have been experiences in my life of having to stay small.”

She then added in reference to her battle with people pleasing: “I was always made to feel I could do anything I wanted but always to a level.

“As long as everyone was happy with whatever you are doing, then you can do whatever you want.”

Andrea went on to credit her husband Nick Feeney, who attended counselling sessions in solidarity with her.

The television personality revealed she had never had therapy until last year, but has since realised how helpful it is.

Speaking about the process, she said: “Nick has been brilliant. It was really important for him to be supportive, so he came along so that we could work together.

“I just happily said, ‘My friend da da da’ and said some funny story about some silly guy and some date she had been on and she was so cross with me.

“She didn’t want anyone to know she was dating online, so yeah note to self, be very careful before you out anyone.”

In response to whether he has suited the lockdown life, Simon divulged: “Not really.

He continued: “That’s always been a thing for me, but if I’ve got a mission and a focus I’m OK.

“I’m hoping that I might be vaguely helpful in the community, by going to fetch stuff for people who are a bit more vulnerable and not able to travel.”

Simon went on to announce how he wants to “stay useful” during this time, as he explained: “I have volunteered and am just waiting for the call — anything to stay useful and to have a job to do.”

The presenter is married to camerawoman Anya Reeve, and they share a son together.

While families across the nation are being encouraged to homeschool their children, Simon says he wants his son to “use his imagination”.

He added: “We’re fairly relaxed about that.

“I’m not one of these tiger parents who’s circling around him forcing him to do stuff.”

The writer concluded: “I just want him to enjoy himself, have fun, get bored now and again and use his imagination.”

Elsewhere, the BBC favourite recently spoke out about how rangers and guides at national parks all over the world have been “laid off” due to the lockdown.

“Poaching is already increasing in some areas. Rhinos have been killed in southern Africa, in tourist areas normally considered safe havens.”

Simon explained how the unfortunate result of this could lead to: “More illegal fishing, stripping out vital creatures that help to keep our oceans in balance”.

The Step by Step author concluded his article by encouraging people to plan visits to these “spectacular” conservation camps.

Charlie Brooker shares concerns about son amid coronavirus pandemic: ‘I was worried’

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Presenter and screenwriter Charlie Brooker, 49, has been in lockdown with his wife Konnie Huq, 44, and their two children Covey, eight, and six-year-old Huxley during the coronavirus pandemic. Opening up on what life has been like during lockdown, he said he’s been trying not to scare his kids about the virus, but also feared his son would get picked on at school because of his name.

I was worried he’d get picked on at school.

Charlie Brooker

He explained: “I hope we’ve done a good job of not scaring them, while impressing the need to wash their hands, and explaining why we can’t get in the car and go to the woods or whatever.

“Our eldest is called Covey, which sounds uncomfortably close to Covid.

“So I was worried he’d get picked on at school. But, luckily, no one caught on to that before the schools closed.”

He added to Radio Times Magazine: “For them, every day is like a weekend when we don’t go out.

“Which was most weekends anyway. Although our eight-year-old made an Easter card for his brother, saying, ‘Happy Easter! I wish Corona wasn’t real.’ Now that was a bit dystopian.”

The Government enforced a lockdown back in March in a bid to combat the spread of the virus.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has since eased lockdown measures including exercising for more than an hour and meeting one family member in a public place, as long as they’re two metres away from each other.

During lockdown, Charlie said he realised being at home was the perfect time to bring back a new edition of his classic Wipe shows, which he started in 2006.

He explained: “So we were looking for ways to keep ourselves active, trying to come up with things that might be made under home working.”

He added of the show, which involves Charlie reviewing television shows from his sofa, “it actually works pretty well under lockdown conditions”.

“People would say, ‘I can’t wait to see what you say about a particular event’. So this seemed a good one to do,” he added.

The idea of new series came after making a new show, which would have involved filming overseas, was put on hold due to the virus.

Elsewhere, The Black Mirror screenwriter’s wife Konnie Huq has also been keeping busy co-writing a series of children’s books with TV executive James Farrell.

“Or the kids would say stupid things [such as] ‘Alexa, tell us a joke’, ‘Alexa, what time is it?’

“She never seemed to serve any useful purpose, so what’s the point?”

Konnie divulged: “I leave Charlie to manage all that stuff.

“All the other mums are like, ‘We only let ours have half an hour of screen time,’ but if Charlie had his way it would be, ‘We only let ours have half an hour off screen time.’

“He’s read up on it all and says there are no studies that show this stuff is bad for you. It’s the future.”

Charlie Brooker’s Antiviral Wipe special airs tonight on BBC Two at 9pm.

The two of you talk about mundane stuff for a while, mostly about the events that have happened. You try to avoid the topic of whats to come, and instead just talk about the present. You cant imagine a better life for yourself than what youve already had, and youre going to enjoy whatever lies beyond the veil that is the new world. You dont really have a choice in the matter, but youre just so tired, so much has happened in such a short period of time, that you decide to put an end to the conversation. Eventually the door swings shut behind you and you hear a sigh of relief. You dont even notice it when the door swings back open a few minutes later. The woman that you talked with is now sitting on a chair and looking at you. In time I hope to have my own little shop here. S okay, we only just got here. So can we stay for a few nights if we want. M a little surprised you would have given me the impression that you were coming here. T you just glad to be out of here for good. Ve got everything you could want in Zalan territory.

Yeah, weve been having a blast, you say. The world isnt gonna change drastically overnight. And it definitely isnt gonna change overnight for us, she says. S important that we have some control over where we go. You dont need to run a small town. I mean, we still need to make sure no predators are lurking about, but we can handle things. You lean in and kiss Amanda before getting up and heading back to your room. There are a few more questions you need to answer first though. Ll just ask Amanda about their home town. You figure that would give you a good jumping off point to ask her about a few other things. But you never once had a chance to ask Amanda your home town. Re just going to go by what Amanda has said. Your real home is wherever the hell you were born on. You could always go back in time and ask Amanda how she was born, and see where she was born again, and so on and so forth. You could also just stick to saying your real hometown and never being out of the loop. Of course, if you wanted to ask some more personal questions, you could always do that later. Right now though, you just need to get the important stuff out of the way. Okay, I was born in a trailer park in southern Ontario.

A bit later you delete all your posts and only leave a few behind, the ones of the celebrities, You delete everything on your board. All the photos you took and put them on the storage of the computer. You are now alone in the study with your computer and your new board. You look at the board, which is still filled with photos, and say nothing. The only door in the whole house that doesnt look like some sort of futuristic gadget or machine. Thank you, you say and start to read the book, a look of gratitude on your face. Ll find quite a few pictures of celebrities in it. Ll make good additions to your board. There are pictures of the various family members of Mr. You wonder if you should put the women back on your board and delete the images of celebrities. M so glad to see you are enjoying yourself. D just stay here, how much more boring would it be. He smiles and says, You know its really boring right. A couple of hours have passed and the board is nearly done. You spend your free time with Keith. Your mother and father and sisters and brothers and grandchildren and great grandchildren. Perfect in the sense that they look as they did when.
