Eamonn Holmes shares tribute to wife Ruth Langsford after being left ‘hurt beyond belief’ over their Gogglebox episode

Eamonn Holmes has shared a sweet tribute to wife Ruth Langsford after Gogglebox apologised for editing scenes of them on Saturday.

A spokesperson for the show apologised to the This Morning presenter after he was left “hurt beyond belief” over them editing out a scene in which he discusses the tragic death of his dad.

The TV presenter has now taken to Instagram to praise his wife as he shared a sweet photo of Ruth relaxing at home with their dog Maggie.

In a sweet tribute to his wife, Eamonn added a pink heart emoji, before writing: "Love is….”

The post comes after Celebrity Gogglebox confirmed they would be editing the show to include the scenes in which Eamonn discusses his father before they put it on catch-up service All4.

“We have apologised to Eamonn over what happened in this week’s episode. We understand and respect Eamonn’s feelings on such a deeply personal story,” they said.


“We have taken the decision to edit the episode for future repeats and All 4. We look forward to working with Eamonn and Ruth for the rest of the series.”

Eamonn had revealed he was “hurt beyond belief” as he was criticised on social media for speaking about how he drove wife Ruth, 60, to the hospital during her labour with son Jack.

Eamonn’s comments appeared to come after the couple had watched an emotional scene of 10 year old son resuscitating his dad on BBC’s Ambulance.

The scene showed This Morning stars Eamonn clearly affected and Ruth in tears, along with a number of celebrities who took part in the show from their home.

In a series of tweets, Eamonn explained: “In reply to a number of complaints …. I am hurt beyond belief that @C4Gogglebox chose not to use me talking about my Father dying from a Heart Attack at the side of a road and replace it with a funny story following a young lad giving his Father CPR . Idiotic and cruel edit."

He added: “So following a tragedy that has forever haunted my family, I am in no mood for criticising holier than thou mouthpieces on here who haven't gone through what we did. I had nothing but praise and emotion for the Ambulance control room TV programme. An atrocious edit @StudioLambert”.

In another heartbreaking tweet, Eamonn explained how his father’s death, which he said was “as close as could be” to the scene of the boy resuscitating his father, had affected his family.

He said: “How my Father died was a particularly horrible experience for my Mother , my younger brother and his friend who were all in the car . [sic]

The resuscitation in The BBC Ambulance programme was as close as could be to my Dad's passing.Yet I am the one edited to make it look like a laugh”.

After a series of sympathetic tweets to Eamonn over the “cruel” editing, he thanked his fans for their support after the “awful” experience.

He wrote: “Thank you everyone for seeing what happened tonight. Just awful that it did and that I have had to explain. Anyone who works in The Ambulance Service or who has experienced the impact of Sudden Death will understand. I now need to put my phone down. Goodnight”.
