Eamonn and Ruth to undergo fitness plan after This Morning exit


The couple were a long-running staple on This Morning. 

Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were replaced on This Morning just over a month ago.

The dynamic duo will still be filling in for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby during their holidays.

In the meantime, Eamonn and Ruth seem to have taken their unexpected free time as an opportunity to focus on getting fit and healthy.

Eamonn has already proudly lost three stone, and now he and wife Ruth are planning to spend 2021 toning up and building their muscles even further.

Eamonn and Ruth  have explained that an important reason for their lifestyle change comes from trying to stave off osteoporosis.

As a result, the pair will attempt to convert their garage into a training gym full of weights and other exercise machines.

Ruth shared: “A lot of fitness experts advocate weight or resistance training to give yourself tone, strengthen your core, posture and strengthen your bones, therefore staving off osteoporosis in older age.

“My vision is to get a weights bench in the garage and spend 30 mins every day on a joint routine.”

New Year’s Resolutions

Meanwhile, Eamonn insists his health drive is all down to a New Year’s resolution he made nearly six years ago, and credits it for his weight loss too.

“I have shed 3st over five years,” the Irish presenter proudly said, after he managed to get down to 15 stone.

“I genuinely believe in New Year’s resolutions. It’s a great time to take stock to repair your habits, to improve your life,” the star added.

His journey has been a bit of a rollercoaster, with Eamonn even becoming “hooked” on a juice diet at first.

The presenter explained he now ensures only one meal a day is a juice, but has spent the last three years sticking to a 12-hour fast every day, which has helped him lose his last stone.

Eamonn also walks the couple’s dog every day and does Pilates once a week, with the pair making sure they move “briskly for 30 minutes, three times per week minimum” too.
