Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford are currently in discussions about the future of their cherished pooch, Maggie. The TV presenting pair, both aged 64, who recently announced their split, have yet to resolve who will be keeping their beloved canine companion.

As per a source that spoke with The Sun newspaper: "Maggie is like a daughter to them. They dote on her. But she's getting on and they know she needs stability. It's a case of who can give her that."

Both Eamonn and Ruth adore Maggie, and for Eamonn - who experienced spinal surgery in 2022 - the thought of parting ways due to his health concerns is heartbreaking. On the topic, the informant shared: "The thought of giving her up is heartbreaking to him. But if Ruth is able to get out and about and walk her more, then it may well be that she gets Maggie in the split."

Most recently, Eamonn touched upon their marital split during a recent episode of GB News. Grateful for viewers support throughout the tumultuous time, Eamonn expressed thanks amid news of his separation from Ruth.

Eamonn, who has been wedded to Ruth since 2010, stated: "Just before we move on, we'd just like to thank people for your support for Ruth and I over the last few days as to the news of our separation. Your support for both of us is very much appreciated."

Before acknowledging the situation broadcasted live, an insider exposed that Eamonn was determined to address the sensitive topic publicly. As per a source's chat with The Sun on Sunday newspaper, "Eamonn is always frank on camera and knows it will be odd for him to discuss the day's news without mentioning his split so he'll say a few words."

"He is putting on a brave face and will be the true professional he always is. Focusing on work will be a welcome distraction."
