There has been one very obvious sign: Eamonn and Ruth have been active on social media but have not posted pictures of each other for nearly two years.

Their last social media post, to Instagram, was of the couple playing out a skit to promote her Feeling Fabulous event in July 2022.

Ruth was snapped creating a checklist for the event, before Eamonn appeared and asked ‘Do you think you’re forgetting something? Or some one? Like, me?’.

She quipped ‘You want to come?’, before adding, ‘I hadn’t really thought about it.’

‘I think they’ll want to see me more than that Anton (Du Beke) and that Rylan (Clark),’ Eamonn hit back.

Sharing the joint post to Instagram, Ruth penned: ‘Can’t help but think I’ve forgotten something important for my Feeling Fabulous event!?…

‘Of course! To celebrate Eamonn joining the amazing line up of guests we’re giving you the chance to win a free ticket. So if you’d like to get your hands on some head over to feelingfabulouswithruth.com (link in bio) for all the details. In his words… “This event just got a whole lot more FABULOUS!”

The couple, who live in Surrey, have prompted many rumours throughout the showbusiness industry in recent months with their lack of joint appearances.

Eamonn and Ruth tied the knot in 2010 after 13 years together, in a lavish ceremony at the grand 19th-century Hampshire hotel, The Elvetham.

The couple are parents to son Jack, 22, while Eamonn also has sons Declan, 35, Niall, 31, and daughter Rebecca, 33, from his previous marriage.

Their split came just days after Ruth revealed she fears Eamonn ‘might never be 100 per cent right’ after undergoing back surgery due to suffering chronic back pain for almost two years.

The GB News breakfast presenter is still recovering from the surgery and an injury to his shoulder, which saw him take four months off work at the end of last year.

He has ongoing daily physio sessions and either uses a cane or wheelchair to get about, with the support of his estranged wife Ruth.

Speaking to Woman’s Weekly, Ruth said: ‘I don’t know how much Eamonn’s mobility will improve. We live in hope.

‘He does the physio, but there might have to be some acceptance that this might never be 100% right. With any care situation – and there are millions of carers in this country – it isn’t always easy. It’s testing but we manage as a family.’

Ruth added: ‘I look at Eamonn, who’s had his health and back problems, and it makes you realise how important your health is.’

On their big day, Ruth walked down the aisle in a dress and matching headdress by Italian designer Angelina Colarusso.

The newlyweds were joined by famous friends including Royle Family star Sue Johnston, TV presenters Gloria Hunniford, Amanda Lamb and Jeremy Kyle, EastEnders actress Zoe Lucker and former champion boxer Barry McGuigan.

Writing on his Twitter page at the time, the proud groom confirmed: ‘Sorry if me and Ruth have been a bit quiet these past few days… but have been a bit preoccupied – we got married yesterday.

‘Although it was a truly stunningly beautiful day – even the sun was eclipsed by my beautiful bride, who I love even more than before.’

It comes just days after Ruth revealed she fears Eamonn 'might never be 100 per cent right' after undergoing back surgery due to suffering chronic back pain for almost two years

Eamonn gushed about his bride in Hello! magazine, which obtained exclusive photographs of their special day.

He told the magazine at the time: ‘Ruth was the missing jigsaw piece in my life. I was meant to be married.

‘She’s a wonderful mummy to Jack, a fantastic partner both personally and professionally and now, I’m proud to say, she’s my beautiful wife.’

Ruth, who regularly presents Loose Women, enthused: ‘Our relationship is very passionate. We’re like Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

‘Although we bicker and argue, ultimately our love for each other and the bond we share is so strong.’

Eamonn and Ruth also hosted This Morning together for 14 years, and were a fixture on the show both on Fridays and during the school holidays.

However, in 2020 the pair were dropped from their Friday slot and replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

A source close to the pair said at the time they were ‘more upset than angry’ at being ousted from the show.
