Body language expert Darren Stanton has weighed in on the recent split between Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, suggesting that Ruth is distinctly uncomfortable with the public scrutiny surrounding the break up. The former couple's separation sent shockwaves through their fanbase last weekend after being together for a solid 14 years.

Darren speculates from a recent photo of Ruth taken post-split that shes hiding "anxiety and nerves", although she hasn't yet publicly acknowledged the split. Eamonn took to his GB News show and expressed gratitude to viewers for their supportive messages after news of their split was made public.

Ruth, while still silent on the matter, hasn't withdrawn entirely, staying active on social media and being spotted outside her Surrey residence just recently, reports RSVP Live. As an insight provided by Spin Genie, Darren stated: "Ruth is putting on a brave face... she's not comfortable flaunting this situation to the press."

"I don't think she's that comfortable airing her private life in public. She recognises that it's a big news story, because they're both well-known, respected presenters and a lot of people probably didn't realise they were going to split up. She is a lot less comfortable than Eamonn in the public eye."

Judging by their respective behaviours, Ruth seems comparatively guarded and keen on preserving her privacy whereas Eamonn appears to be handling everything openly. Darren commented: "Eamonn, by contrast, seems to be more resilient.

"When he announced the split on his GB News show, he thanked his fans and dipped his head down which is a submissive gesture. This shows he is being genuine and speaking from the heart."

Despite appearing stronger, Darren believes both are experiencing deep pain following their separation. He added: "They're clearly both affected deeply. It was unexpected that Eamonn and Ruth would split up, they've been married for 14 years. We can see Eamonn is affected but I do think he's more resilient than Ruth is.

"They both know they're going to have this play out for a bit longer with the media and the press."
