Eamonn showed off his new haircut on Instagram

Eamonn isn't the only one in his household who's treated themselves to a lockdown haircut. As soon as salons were able to open at the beginning of July, his wife Ruth rushed to her favourite hairdressers, Leo Bancroft's salon.

Arriving at 7am, Ruth told fans on Instagram: "Morning, yes I am finally here, I am at Leo Bancroft's Salon in Weybridge. Look I am the only one here at the moment, this is one of the rooms upstairs.

"All socially distanced, I've got my mask… getting these roots done finally, look how dark those are. Can't wait! I've got my own coffee, we're all set, I've got my mask… see you later!"

Hours later, Ruth unveiled her fresh new do, saying: "There we go, all done, back home, blonde highlights done, cut by Leo! I was going to try and keep it as long as I could but I had so many split ends that I had to go a little bit shorter but it will grow! Just happy to have my blonde back."
