Eamonn Holmes may feature regularly on screen with his on-screen and real-life wife Ruth Langsford, but it turns out that his work best friend is actually someone completely different.
And it’s not even anyone from the This Morning team either – not Rylan, Holly Willoughby, or Phillip Schofield.
No, in fact it’s actually one of Ruth’s Loose Women co-stars. On his Instagram, Eamonn revealed that his best friend is actually Saira Khan – his radio co-star.
Speaking about returning to their radio show together, he confessed, ‘It’s back to School on @talkradiouk for @iamsairakhan and it’s like having your bestie back with the whole Summer to catch up on. Boy do we laugh. 😁😀🤣😂’
Saira and Eamonn work together on a regular weekday show on TalkRadio, where they discuss everything from celebrity news to real-life stories and hard-hitting issues.
Fans of the show agreed that the pair have a great bond, commenting on the photo to share praise on them both. One wrote, ‘Talk about enjoying your job. You two really do have a blast. @eamonnholmes Such a good show too #talkradiouk xx’
While another agreed, saying, ‘It’s nice that you get on so well. Have fun, Eamonn and Saira. 😊👍’
And it’s not the first time the pair have addressed their close friendship. Recently, Eamonn and Saira appeared via live-link in the Loose Women studios, where his wife and her friend Ruth was presenting a segment about having a ‘work spouse’.
Eamonn proceeded to tease Ruth, pretending to start a sweet ode to his wife of 18 years. He began, “Every now and again someone comes into you life, someone who makes a real difference.”
“Someone who you wake up and want to be with, who makes you laugh, who you care about, who’s nice.”
But he then finished by saying, “Someone who’s your soulmate; someone who is, Saira Khan.”
Saira then hilariously appeared along side him with a cup of tea in hand, while Eamonn thanked her for the ‘little things’ she does for him.
But Ruth didn’t rise to the teasing, instead laughing at the jibe, and delivering a sweet love letter to Eamonn.
