For example, at 9am, there's a motivational message reading: "You've got it," while at 11am, there's another stating: "Remember your goal," and at 5pm, it says: "No excuses."

But Ruth is apparently all about balance, as she's previously told hubby Eamonn she has no intention of giving up alcohol.

Speaking on an episode of This Morning, Eamonn joked: "Imagine how much more gorgeous you could be if you gave up booze, to which Ruth replied, "Never going to happen now, I'm too old to worry."

That said, Ruth does like to keep on top of her fitness. Recently, she shared a clip of herself training with her PT Frank Sinclair, showing her sprinting, boxing, and nailing crossbody dumbbell punches and kettlebell swings.

She also takes her dog Maggie on long walks everyday, while back in lockdown, she also took on a skipping challenge, after being inspired by an old post she saw of herself.

She said: "So...inspired by my previous post with @fitwithfrank (filmed in 2017 by the way for those asking!) I’m going to try skipping again! Loved it as a kid....bit harder when you’re 60! Only managed about 20 skips before I got tangled! If at first you don’t succeed… #isolationexercises #skipping."
