Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were on the sofa today to present the ITV show.
Naturally, talk turned to New Year’s resolutions on This Morning where Ruth said hers was to lose weight.
The 58-year-old revealed she had an app to help her along the way and Eamonn couldn’t help but make a joke.
“I’m only allowed 1200 calories a day,” Ruth said.
That’s because you’re very fat
“That’s because you’re very fat, that’s why,” he laughed.
Those watching at home weren’t too happy with Eamonn’s comment, despite his joking tone, and took to Twitter to comment.
One wrote: “Eamonn I can't believe you called Ruthie fat!
“She is lovely and I think you and I both know you are punching above your weight!!! Ha ha x.”
“Eamon only managed to last 4 minutes before making a derogatory comment to Ruth.
“Bored of seeing their boring relationship. Switched off,” another added.
