Ruth's motivational clips were shared only hours after she gave some advice about body confidence in a chat about weight struggles on This Morning. During the show, one caller revealed that the menopause had made it harder for her to lose weight. The viewer, named Jessica, said: "You get depressed because everywhere you look you see Love Island models. You get the middle aged spread and your weight is getting thicker and thicker and everything you do, nothing helps."

Sympathising, Ruth said: "Oh I know that feeling!" The star then went on to say that she was currently going through the menopause, but that she wasn’t going to let it get her down. "It completely affects my ability to lose weight," she said. "I try not to let it ruin my life but at least you're doing those things and you're going to boot camp. You're trying your best." The star then added: "As long as you're enjoying your life and living your life it's not all about your weight. Jessica, enjoy your life, I'm sure you look great."
