Following the divorce announcement over the weekend, Eamonn thanked everyone for their ongoing support and messages.

“I’d just like to thank people for your support for Ruth and I over the last few days as to the news of our separation,” he said, adding: “Your support for both of us is very much appreciated.”

Eamonn’s co-host Isabel Webster smiled and nodded in support before moving on with the show.

Ruth, on the other hand, has yet to publicly discuss their split. It is also unknown when her next appearance on ITV’s Loose Women will take place.

The star hasn’t been active on her Instagram grid for over a month. Her last post took place on April 18 where she was promoting her QVC clothing line. She did share a post about dog Maggie over the weekend to her Stories, though.
