The 56-year-old TV star was quizzed by This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby via video link as she sat in the Loose Women studio today and all but confirmed it.

Phillip probed: “We were going to ask him about the rumours that you and Eamonn would do Strictly… But seeing as though you are there?”

Ruth giggled before she answered: “Would I? Well I can’t reveal that can I…? You’re not allowed to say if you are or you’re not.”

Craig joined Phillip and Holly later and added: “Wouldn’t it be great to have a husband and wife team on the show. They should make it happen, I would love to see it.”

Meanwhile, Ruth and Eamonn could be joined by pop star Anastacia, former Coronation Street hunk Ryan Thomas and Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby, who are all said to be keen to dance under the giant glitter ball.
