Eamonn Holmes has revealed sad news for him and wife Ruth.

Taking to his social media to share the sad updates with his fans, the This Morning presenter revealed his and wife Ruth Langsford’s dog Maggie was in the hospital for the second time this month.

Sharing an adorable snap of the Border Collie cross, which he and Ruth adopted back in 2011 after becoming besotted with her at a celebration for the tenth anniversary of the Uxbridge Dogs Trust Centre, Eamonn revealed that the family pet was back at the vet’s again.

Posting a snap for his 554,000 followers to see of the adorable pet staring up at him while waiting at the vet’s office, Eamonn wrote, ‘Honestly Mags , I don’t want to be here either.Waiting in the Vets Hospital. Looks like a dislocated shoulder. Poor Mags. 🐕’.

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...).
