Ruth Langsford shared what she's been up to at the weekend in a new video posted to Instagram. The presenter spoke directly to camera as she walked outside on Saturday evening, dressed in a stylish silver puffer jacket and large sunglasses. She said: "Evening! Decided to save my walk for the evening because I've just been busy around the house, cleaning and tidying and cooking, and just keeping myself busy. So I've just walked round to see my mum, well, I say see her – wave at her through the window, which is better than nothing. She's fine, I'm just walking Maggie, beautiful evening. Hope you're all staying in, staying safe, see you soon."

The 60-year-old added a caption to the video, which read: "What a beautiful day it’s been... surreal really considering the devastation that Covid19 is causing. Hope you’re all keeping safe. Take care." Ruth often spends time with her mum Joan, especially at the weekends, when Joan can usually be found preparing Sunday lunch with her daughter. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the older woman is remaining at home for the foreseeable future. Ruth has been checking in with her regularly since the government lockdown began last month, however, including on Mother's Day.

The former GMTV star also posted a touching message on Instagram on Friday in an effort to inspire his fans. It read: "The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly."
