Eamonn Holmes has explained himself to fans who were left questioning where he and wife Ruth had gone, after a prolonged absence from screens.
Neither Ruth nor Eamonn have appeared on TV since the end of June, and Ruth has also refrained from posting on her social media accounts for over a week.
With the middle of July fast approaching, some fans have expressed their concerned over their whereabouts.
One wrote to Eamonn on Twitter, to express her disappointment over their absence on This Morning.
She said, ‘Where are you today switched on This Morning…disappointed look forward to you and Ruth on a Friday with a cheeky coffee xxo’
Other fans echoed her sentiments, saying ‘i did miss eamonn and ruth today’.
But fear not, as the pair haven’t gone far. Eamonn Holmes quickly responded to a fan online, explaining that he and Ruth hadn’t been seen for a while as they are on holiday.
He said, ‘Just on a couple of weeks off to recharge before a full on Summer stint. 👍😎😎😎”
Ruth and Eamonn will return to This Morning next week, where they will begin seven weeks of presenting the show full-time, while Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby take their summer holidays off.
While it’s not clear where the couple have jetted off too, Eamonn has shared one or two humourous updates, revealing that they had been watching the World Cup with excitement.
Poking fun at his wife, he wrote, ‘I wish I could post you video of @RuthieeL ‘s antics during this #ENG match . Very amusing , she just can’t help herself.’
It’s set to be a busy summer for the pair, with a new series of their Channel 5 show, How the Other Half Live also airing on 19th July.
Ruth is also likely to return to Loose Women for her regular presenting stints.
So we hope the couple are getting in as much relaxing as they can on their holiday!
