Ruth also gave some telling comments to The Mirror Notebook recently, before it was suggested that the couple were set to be axed from the show.

She said of their hard work over the years: "We put the work in. We didn't do a reality show and get an overnight job on telly. We've come through the ranks."

She added: "Eamonn was only 19 when he started out. And he was doing the teatime news in Belfast during The Troubles. It was heavy stuff. And he's now got an OBE for services to broadcasting."
