This comes after the This Morning presenter took himself to hospital for tests on Thursday due to pain that became too much to handle.

"Beef casserole/stew incoming for the patient!" Ruth wrote on her Instagram Stories as she walked fans through her latest cooking tutorial.

She started by instructing fans to "shake the beef in seasoned flour" before drying it in some oil, draining it on kitchen paper and setting it aside.

Opening up the lid of her Le Creuset casserole dish to reveal the steaming comfort food, Ruth wrote: "Ta-da! Beef casserole/stew." And we're sure it went down a treat with Eamonn.

Earlier in the week, Eamonn worried fans when he shared a selfie from the hospital. Captioning the photo, he wrote: "At Hospital. Pain like I've never felt in my life. Hope they discover the cause. Wish me well folks."

It was later revealed by Good Morning Britain's Charlotte Hawkins that he did not spend the night in hospital.

Speaking on Friday's edition of GMB, Charlotte confirmed she had been in touch with Eamonn, who urged her not to worry.

Charlotte said: "I was messaging Eamonn last night when I saw the picture he put up.

"Obviously everyone is very worried about how he is. He said: 'Don’t you be worried about visiting me'. He said: 'I’m not in hospital', he was at hospital for tests.

"Of course we do send him all of our love, Eamonn we are thinking of you."
