Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes

Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford often appear joined at the hip.

You rarely see one of them on our television screens without the other one popping up also. Their chemistry and expertise obviously make them the perfect couple for presenting programmes such as This Morning, but surely they must get fed up always being in each other's company?

Not so, it appears. For when they relax in front of their home television sets they each go to a different room. Ruth, it seems, cannot bear Eamonn's constant chittering during programmes and separate televisions are the ideal answer. Who knew that this was a recipe for a happy marriage?
