The Alzheimer's Society replied, thanking Ruth for her support. They wrote, 'Thank you so, so much Ruth 💙 Lots of love to you and Maggie 🐶❤️#MemoryWalk'

The 60-year-old lost her dad, Dennis, to Alzheimer's back in 2012, so it's a cause that's close to her heart.

Ruth has previously spoken about losing her dad on Loose Women. She shared with the audience, "I was grieving and losing my dad but my mum was losing the love of her life, the man she married and had children with.

"They had years and years of memories. You don't often hear people talking about that side of it.

"When my dad went into care, my mum was so distraught... You do hope, but you know they probably won't get better."
