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.
