The This Morning presenter took to Instagram to welcome his wife back to the This Morning sofa, after she took some time off following the death of her sister.

Posting a sweet image of the pair sitting side-by-side in a loving embrace while presenting the ITV daytime show together, the loving husband wrote: ‘My partner is back in business. Please join us for This Morning on@itvfrom 10.30 ....for the next 7, yes I said SEVEN , Weeks. Summer is here!’

Well-known faces like actress Martine McCutcheon, TV presenter Julia Bradbury and singer Mollie King even left excited comments on the post, writing: ‘Yay!!! Double trouble are back👊🏼😍👏🏼💖 See you at the weekend @eamonnholmesx’; ‘Whaaaat?! Wow, that's a long stretch. No summer hols for you’ and ‘❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️’.

Today was Ruth’s first day back on screens for nearly a month, after she shared with fans back on 20th June that she had sadly lost her sister to a ‘very long illness’.

Alongside a sweet photo of the pair together, Ruth wrote: ‘My lovely Sis Julia has sadly died after a very long illness. My heart is completely broken.

‘She was the kindest and most gentle soul and I will miss her forever.’

Explaining that she would be taking some time away from the screen after her difficult loss, Ruth added: ‘As I am sure you will appreciate I need to take time to grieve with my family. Thank you for your understanding.’

While Ruth was away, Eamonn managed to hold down the fort, taking to the This Morning couch the very next day with co-presenter Rylan Clark-Neal.

Hopefully Ruth is feeling better and will enjoy being back on screens.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
