Ruth Langsford is in her element now that her son Jack, 21, is home from university – and fans have been loving her sweet updates about their festive family plans.

The Loose Women presenter, 63, shared a heartwarming snap of her son and her pet dog Maggie on a Christmas Eve dog walk, enjoying some quality time together outside of the house. The former This Morning host also revealed that Jack had given her a cracking Christmas card, showing just how much he valued her as a mum.

The card read: "She lay under the tree, to remind her family that she too was a gift", and Ruth was naturally quick to recreate it for comedic effect.

"Best Christmas card EVER from Jack!!! And so true! #giftthatkeepsongiving," Ruth wrote. One fan responded: "Love it! Merry Christmas to you all xx," while another penned: "Sons are just the best!".

Ruth has shared several more updates with her loyal fans over the Christmas period, including her beverage of choice (a Prosecco in a fancy cocktail glass), her roaring fireplace, and her turkey and leftover veg soup bubbling away on the stove.

The TV personality's Christmas with her son is all the more special since Ruth recently confessed just how much her only child leaving for university had impacted her.

Talking about her son Jack leaving home, she tearfully told Rosie Nixon, HELLO!'s In A Good Place podcast host: "I would say that first week of not having him at home literally felt like part of my heart had been ripped out.

"I remember coming into his bedroom and crying and getting hold of the pillow, and I could smell him on the pillow, and had a good old cry, and then shutting the door and then that first week was horrendous because I was just so used to having him around."

 Eamonn and Ruth live in a spacious Surrey home boasting six bedrooms, five bathrooms and four reception rooms.

The modern abode, which isn't far from Ruth's beloved mum's house, also has its very own home cinema and a Manchester-United theme man cave for GB News host Eamonn to relax in.
