She became the seventh celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing this weekend. And appearing on Monday's Strictly spin-off It Takes Two, Ruth Langsford revealed her son, Jack, sent her a sweet text message. Praising her family's support, the This Morning presenter told host Zoe Ball: "To have them there every single week... I mean, it's a big commitment from your family as well to come as well. Especially Jack - he's only 15 and he loved it - he was quite emotional on Saturday." Zoe then noted: "I know, you showed me a message which he sent you that was so beautiful, it was gorgeous."
