SPICING THINGS UP
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.’
