It’s time to come Holmes, Ruthie

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SQUARE EYES -

EA­MONN Holmes wants his wife back!

He’s sug­gested to Ruth Langs­ford it is time for her to “step away” from Strictly.

Ea­monn, 57, says she’s bat­tling through pain this week as she learns to tango with An­ton Du Beke.

Ruth is hav­ing daily physio for a ham­string in­jury and Ea­monn says: “The chances of her win­ning are nil.

“I say to her, ‘Are you OK? You look ex­hausted. Is it not time to step away?’” But Ruth has no plans to quit. Ea­monn, above, says: “She is en­joy­ing prov­ing things to her­self. I think she loves it.”

Poor Ea­monn ad­mits he feels a bit bereft while Ruth, 57, is learn­ing her steps. At an event for Gesher School, a pri­mary for chil­dren with spe­cial ed­u­ca­tional needs, he says: “The house can be lonely. I work longish hours and when I come home I think ‘Where is Ruthie?’ She’s not there.” Luck­ily his dog com­forts him. “She’s very good, lies on her back and rolls over.” Don’t fret Ea­monn, we’re sure Ruth will be home soon (in the nicest pos­si­ble way).
