She began: "I'm back, I'm back, my second 30-minute [run], you know it actually wasn't that bad today as the first one, so that's a good thing."

"I was really looking forward to today, just to be out on my own… You know nobody around, with my own thoughts… but sometimes you can't do that, because sometimes people just get on your run and come and annoy you."

Ruth shared her pregnancy news with Sam before husband Eamonn

Ruth and Sam have been best friends for three decades, and last year the This Morning co-host revealed just what an important role Sam has played in her life.

Sharing a photo from her friend's son's christening 19 years earlier, Ruth revealed that her husband Eamonn Holmes was away when she found out she was pregnant, so Sam was the first person she told about the happy news.

Ruth sweetly wrote: "A very special moment together. We've shared a lot of those during our 30-year friendship... thanks, mate."
