Ruth laughed off the embarrassing tweet

She said: "The picture on the left is my mummy, my niece sent them to me on Whatsapp. I was trying to find one on the camera, I zoomed and screenshotted – is that what you call it? What I didn't know is when people send you racy pictures that go round, that are very amusing… I didn't realise they get saved to your camera roll. So I looked at it and thought, 'That's hilarious', then forgot about it." She joked that she is rarely sent risqué photos, adding: "It's normally like dogs do the funniest thing!"

Referencing the tweet, Ruth joked that her husband Eamonn Holmes was worried people would think he was in the photograph. After her co-stars' teased her, she replied: "Eamonn was worried that people would think it's him… I thought my son would be embarrassed but apparently I'm on a very trendy cool website now, that LadBible." To add to the gaffe, Ruth admitted that she hadn't realised her error until a day later. "I didn't know until I came in here," she said. "And on Mother's Day! I blame the girlfriend who sends those pics to me, you know who you are! Social media is quite scary isn't, when they told me, my stomach, I felt sick… there might be more than one."
