She also spoke about her husband's reaction when she was invited to join the show, explaining: "Eamonn was fantastic as soon as I mentioned it. He said, 'Do it! Do it! It doesn't matter what else you're doing, just grab it'. If I hadn't, I'd have always wondered what I'd have been like on 'Strictly'… I have been very vocal every year about how gutted I am that they haven't ever asked me."

However, in a new interview with HELLO!, Eamonn revealed that he wouldn't be at all interested in taking part in the show. He said: "I don't want to do Strictly. I've been asked to do Strictly before and I don't want to do it. I am not interested it, as a person, but it really was Ruth's dream." Ruth also revealed that she was beginning to get nervous about the dance competition, saying: "The nerves have started very badly for me today. I had a real jitter. Actually, it started yesterday. I got up very early and did that thing of, 'Err, what day is it? Where am I supposed to be?' Then I realised it was Sunday and every negative thought I could possibly think about doing Strictly suddenly was there."
