Let’s face it – Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have done pretty well for themselves. They’re one of the top presenting duos on TV, fronting some of the most popular primetime shows around – award-winning ITV show This Morning for one.
But although they’re great (and undeniably successful) together, the couple – both on and off-screen – have had remarkably successful careers of their own too.
Ruth has guest presented multiple episodes of Lorraine, and regularly stars as a host on Loose Women. Meanwhile, Eamonn has enjoyed a successful news career, fronting GMTV, Sunrise, and Good Morning Britain in the past.
At the moment, the couple mainly work together, largely on This Morning, but also on their popular Channel 5 programme: How The Other Half Live.
Currently, the pair are rarely off our screens. Which surely means that they’re likely to be earning a pretty penny between them!
And, if their current home is anything to go by, that amount is sure to be quite a lot! The couple, who have a 14-year-old son Jack, currently live in St George’s Hill, Weybridge, in Surrey. Although it’s just a short commute into their day jobs in London, it’s also a gorgeously remote area, surrounded by all the perks of the countryside.
St George’s Hill is a private estate, exclusively for the wealthy and successful. It’s even seen stars such as Ringo Starr grace it’s threshold before. It’s also got a private golf club and spa, for when the presenting superstars want to relax in privacy.
Eamonn and Ruth own a £3.25 million property in the Surrey countryside, and it was one of the only properties the pair agreed on, apparently.
Eamonn joked, “I was always looking at houses and lined this one up for Ruth to see. Amazingly, she liked it – and we don’t often like the same things. Keeping Ruth happy is the only way. The alternative would be like never-ending purgatory!”
Their home is of course up to celebrity standards too. Boasting six bedrooms over three floors, the house is nothing short of fabulous. It’s even got itself a home cinema, a hot tub, and a fridge entirely dedicated to wine!
In fact, Ruth often posts Instagram videos from their palatial country surroundings.
But how much are the couple actually worth? Given their various work commitments, we’re sure it’s likely to be a satisfying sum…
Ruth Langsford net worth
It’s thought that the This Morning hostess with the mostest is worth a whopping £3 million.
A big portion of Ruth’s income of course comes from This Morning, one of the longest running daytime shows on air. But her other daytime show, Loose Women, also contributes a hefty amount to her monthly pay packet. She’s been on the show since 1999, first appearing as a guest panellist, and then having been made a regular host on the programme back in 2014.
The presenting favourite is also thought to have made a significant sum of money from various endorsement deals, include for Tesco, for whom she did a few television adverts. Ruth also has a fashion range with QVC, which is popular amongst her fans.
But it’s seems that her latest venture is set to be one of her most profitable yet. Ruth recently announced that she will be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing 2017.
Rumour has it that the most famous among the latest crop of chosen celebrities will have scooped a whopping £25,000 fee for taking part. If they make it to October in the live shows, it’s also said that the sum will go up to £40,000, while the final contestants left standing will bag themselves an impressive £70,000. And those amounts are on top of the £25,000 original fee!
Eamonn Holmes net worth
Much like his wife, Eamonn is also worth an impressive £3 million. Up until 1993, Eamonn anchored many Irish programmes, including the main news show on Ulster Television.
But he of course found his big break on GMTV that year. After leaving the programme in 2005, following 12 years on the show, he joined Sky News to host their Sunrise show.
He successfully fronted the breakfast show until 2016, making an emotional goodbye after 11 years as anchor. Since then, Eamonn has found success with This Morning, hosting a Radio 2 programme, writing as a columnist in various publications including The People newspaper, and game shows such as The Rich List in the USA.
Ruth and Eamonn have proven that they’re savvy too. The couple celebrated their wedding back in 2010, and sold the rights to Hello! Magazine, who paid a large fee for exclusive coverage of the event, publicised over two of their July issues that year.
