The 60-year-old later spent some time replying to fans, including one who told him he needed a hug and wondered if he and Ruth would be on This Morning on Good Friday.
"Yep on Friday. Ruthiee sleeping," he said before paying tribute to his wife of nine years. "I'm pleased because she works so hard at everything she does. She's certainly running this house like a military operation. It's her way of dealing with the scariness of it all," he confessed.
Another follower told the father-of-four that swearing was good to relief the anger he was feeling, which prompted him to reveal why he was so heartbroken on Wednesday night.
"Obviously, I said a bit more in private...Spoke to people affected tonight. Heartbreaking," he wrote.
