Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford's split came after she found messages between him and another woman, sources have claimed. It has been reported that Ruth was 'angry' and 'devastated' after discovering the messages on a laptop, according to a source speaking to The Sun on Sunday.

The former couple, both 64, announced they were divorcing last month. A statement said at the time: “Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have confirmed their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing.”

It comes after claims that Eamonn had developed a friendship with a woman in her 40s and they had been on days out together. An insider told 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."

Eamonn has since moved out of their marital home in Surrey. Ruth has not yet returned to her TV gig on ITV Loose Women.

She has said she will return to the ITV show next month.
