Posting an image of a black vintage 1970s car with red stripes on the bonnet, Eamonn wrote: "OK here's the problem… I have a big draw to 1970's American muscle cars but I've never had one. I'm coming close to changing that [heart emoji]."

The star then tagged his wife as he went on: "On the other hand @RuthieeL says if I put something like this on the driveway she's changing me…

"Does she have a point? Advice Tweeters please."

The star shared his quandary with fans on Twitter

The star's fans were divided on the best course of action to take, however. One suggested: "Eamonn, say you bought it for Ruth because she would look lovely in it!"

Another replied: "Simply rent a garage near you and put it there!" A third suggested: "Go for something sleek and electric instead Eamonn."

Another chimed in: "Buy it! Ruth is too much in love with you to leave you for buying a car! You should cook her a few meals and empty the dishwasher for a week and you will be back in the good books once you have bought it…"

Eamonn and Ruth have been together for over two decades 

The dad-of-four seemed keen on that idea, replying: "That's a plan."

Although the This Morning co-host was asking his fans for advice, he's more typically in the position of being consulted for insights himself.

Eamonn now hosts a popular Instagram Agony Uncle show and discussed all things burnout and stress at work in his most recent episode, impressing fans with his calm and rational approach.
