Sharing a video close-up of her watch showing she'd hit 10,089 steps and heart rate had gone up into the fat burning zone, Ruth told fans: "Had to run up & down the stairs at home for a while but I completed my #10000steps today… Boom!"

The 58-year-old has been making a concerted effort to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine over the past few months, after recently admitting that going through the menopause had affected her ability to lose weight. Talking to a viewer on This Morning call-in, Ruth admitted she was currently going through the menopause but 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."
