“Honestly, I don’t see the need to [renew vows],” he said.

Speaking to the Express, he added, “We’re not in a situation where we feel like we have to, I’m not saying never but it’s not high up on our to do list.”

Going onto to divulge what he feels the secret is behind his long lasting romance, Eamonn continued, “It’s not the worse out there, no marriage is perfect.

“I think the secret for Ruth and I is, we don’t bottle things up and we don’t go around pretending that there’s never anything wrong or we never have a disagreement because we do.

“We’re always good at making up.”
