Broadcasters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have split after 14 years of marriage, it has been reported. A statement from the much-loved TV couple said that their work commitments have 'taken them in different directions.'

Eamonn and Ruth tied the knot in 2010 at The Elvetham Hotel in Hampshire. Concern had been growing about the much-loved duo, who worked together for years on ITV This Morning, after fans noticed they had not been pictured together in weeks, reports the Daily Mirror.

Sources told The Sun on Sunday that the pair have confirmed that their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing. Work was said to have taken them 'in different directions' but they are determined to 'keep things amicable.'

A joint statement read: “Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have confirmed their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing.” It is set to come as a huge surprise to fans who had regarded the couple as having one of the most honest and enduring marriages on TV.

Eammon and Ruth were renowned for their bickering rows, many of which took place in the full glare of the ITV cameras during their stint on This Morning. But the duo had always insisted their disagreements came from a place of affection, reports the Daily Mirror.

Fans were shocked when Eammon and Ruth were axed from This Morning in 2020. While Ruth stayed with ITV as part of Loose Women, Eamonn took a number of shots against his bosses in recent years after moving on to GB News.

Eamonn claimed he was sacked from his long-standing role 'without warning' and claimed ITV bosses were 'never kind to him.' In recent years, the 64-year-old has battled chronic pain and has been pictured in a wheelchair and on crutches as his health has deteriorated.
