Ruth was equally glammed up in a gorgeous printed midi dress complete with a fascinator prompting many fans to believe that the husband and wife presenting duo were about to make someone's nuptials unforgettable.

Even more mind-boggling, the photo was taken inside the studio of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. "What are @eamonnholmes and I doing with @antanddec on @itvtakeaway tonight?" Ruth captioned the mysterious snap. "You'll have to wait until the End of the Show Show to find out!!"

However, it turns out the presenting duo weren't attending a real wedding - it was actually for a skit on the show! The This Morning presenters were playing a part in the show's one-off revival of SM:TV sketch Chums

The short skit also featured appearances from comedians Emily Atack and Joe Lycett and the band Steps. Actor Simon Pegg and music legend Sting also made virtual cameos via video call.

Fans were  watching the short sketch but were left feeling nostalgic after it ended. "How did it feel the same watching this tonight as it did 20 years ago?! Loved it," one person tweeted. Another wrote: "This was so good. I loved #Chums and #SMTVLive when I was growing up." 

"I love seeing everyone trying to keep it together. We should have a new episode of Chums every week!" a third added.
