They met in 1997 after they were introduced through a mutual friend, TV presenter Sally Meen.
Speaking about her spouse, Ruth dished: "Before I even met Eamonn, I was a big fan.
"I used to watch him on GMTV andI always thought he was handsome, funny and a brilliant journalist.
"It was nerve- racking when I did meet him; I remember thinking, ‘Oh, my God, that’s Eamonn Holmes!’"
