SPIC­ING THINGS UP

Woman (UK) - - Cover Story -

with eight years of mar­riage un­der their belt, Ruth and Ea­monn have suc­cess­fully passed the ‘seven year itch’, but keep­ing the spark alive has al­ways been im­por­tant to them.

Last year, they hosted Ea­monn & Ruth’s 7 Year Itch, where they ex­plored ways of spic­ing up mar­riages – in­clud­ing al­ter­nate sex ther­apy ses­sions and a visit to a bondage dun­geon.

Giv­ing an in­sight into their sex life, Ea­mon said pre­vi­ously, ‘You cre­ate a mood as the evening goes on. The fire is burn­ing, the wine is flow­ing, the mu­sic is play­ing,’ to which Ruth chuck­led, ‘You’re slip­ping into a silk ki­mono at this point.’

Ruth has ad­mit­ted that the menopause had a ‘huge ef­fect’ on her weight – and saw her dress size shoot up from a 12 to a 14. and Ea­monn, 58, reg­u­larly pokes fun at her – of­ten to an av­er­age of 1.2 mil­lion view­ers on This Morn­ing – so it’s no won­der Ruth has got a weight com­plex.

Be­fore she joined the Strictly line-up, Ea­mon joked, I think you’re go­ing to have to change your pol­icy be­cause you have a lot of weight to lose for Strictly.’
