Eamonn Holmes is reportedly getting closer to a relationship adviser who is 22 years younger than he is.

When the prominent GB News presenter, aged 64, declared in May that he and his wife, Ruth Langsford, 64, were splitting up it sent tremors through the celebrity world.

For the most part, Eamonn has remained tight-lipped about the split, bar expressing gratitude for fan support via GB News towards himself and Ruth. However, backstage whispers suggest he's finding solace in Katie Alexander, a 42-year-old mother of three.

Insiders report that Katie had dropped by to see the dad-of-four at his new place in the last couple of weekends.

After announcing his separation from Ruth, Eamonn opted to move out of their lavish home. Now, observants have spied Katie visiting the presenter at his rented flat in South West London, journeying from her Yorkshire home, as reported by The Sun.

A photo surfaced last week depicting Eamonn at a February safari park, a blonde woman visible via the vehicle's back window creating further speculation.

This follows an incident where Ruth reportedly discovered correspondences between Eamonn and an unknown woman on her husband's laptop. An insider revealed to The Sun on Sunday: "Ruth was completely taken by surprise when she saw the messages. She had no idea what had been going on between them. She was devastated. Not only was she very upset but she was also angry," reports the Mirror.

After Katie interacted with one of Eamonn's posts on what was once referred to as Twitter, it is reported that the two became acquainted. The news anchor had been present at a charity fundraising event in Yorkshire - near where Katie resides - and took on the role of a patron, if reports are to be believed.

Ruth is said to be 'raging' considering her lack of knowledge about the pair's friendly relations, which has now become public. Nevertheless, Ruth's pals, including Homes Under The Hammer host Lucy Alexander, have offered their support during this time.

Using social media, Ruth mentioned she spent her days alongside her mum and cherished dog, Maggie, in the garden. Replying to Ruth's post, Lucy recommended: "Just what you need - mum and Maggie cuddles... I reckon you should have a swig of Joan's sherry [laughing emoji] love you."

Ruth and Eamonn, who share a 22 year old son, Jack, appeared to be living the dream with successful careers. However, rumours have surfaced in recent times alleging a rocky state in their marriage.

In May, a joint statement from the couple's representatives announced: "Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have confirmed their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing."

The duo had spent 27 years together before making the decision to part ways. Despite all this, both Eamonn and Ruth have been observed still wearing their wedding bands, Eamonn while returning to GB News and Ruth when glimpsed running errands in Surrey.

Since the news broke, it has been claimed Eamonn had been left "blindsided" by the announcement, which his former wife reportedly orchestrated. Although Ruth has yet to speak publicly about the split, Eamonn previously thanked fans for their ongoing support.
