Her fashion range is a big hit, but Ruth Langsford picked up some of her style tips from husband Eamonn Holmes.

The 62-year-old said he was extremely proud of his wife but claimed he had inspired her in the early days.

He explained: “When I first met her, it was a joy to style her. I pushed her to be a bit more adventurous, to wear a bit more bling and more tailored outfits.

“In those days, she would accept that, but that soon stopped and she forged her own path. She’s found her look and has her QVC line — I’m very proud.

“I don’t see myself as stylish, but I would say I think I can look smart if I make the effort.

“I have in my head who I would like to be. I admire people such as Pierce Brosnan — what a stylish man — and George Clooney.

My style is conventional and classic but with a dash of adventure. I do have a soft spot for a nice tux and I love a scarf... that traditional look.

“The most stylish man that ever existed in my opinion was Cary Grant . If I could wave a magic wand and carry off any look, it would be his. I’ll give it a try.

“Ruth’s forever telling me ‘It’s all right for men, you just put on a suit’. Half an hour before we’re due to go anywhere, she’ll go ‘Look at the time. You’re not ready’. I’ll say ‘I’m washed, I’m clean’. I throw on my suit and I’m done, while she has a wardrobe of clothes but nothing to wear.”

The one thing we might not see Eamonn sporting is a festive jumper. He admitted: “I’m not a huge fan of Christmas jumpers, but I’m a huge fan of Christmas. If one means having the other, then so be it. I’ll step out of my comfort zone.

“I wouldn’t worry too much about your look for the Christmas party. The more people drink, the more stylish you will look by the end of the night.”

Eamonn won’t have to worry about waiting for Ruth to get dressed up over Christmas because they have decided to spend part of the holidays apart this year. Ruth’s mum Joan lives in a care home in Surrey and the Loose Women presenter was unable to visit her during the pandemic.

The pair both reunited with their mums after lockdown eased, with Eamonn describing the reunions as meaning “everything” to them.

He said: “We have this issue, in that we’ve got a sea dividing us. We often have a dilemma of whether I go to Belfast or whether Ruth comes with me. Ruth wants to be with her mum. My mother is 93 this year. It’s easier for us often to be apart.”
