Ruth is attending the NTAs without Eamonn

Ruth will be attending the event without her husband, Eamonn Holmes, who has confirmed that he won't be attending due to a bout of illness. The presenter tweeted to confirm he would be missing the awards show, writing: "Hi everybody, well it's the patient here. I've taken enough antiseptic painkillers to speak to you now but basically for the past three days, I haven't been able to speak. I've had a terrible cough and cold, very, very sore throat. Just want to say, it's so disappointing because I've got my gig on Talk radio so for any of you tuning in, and are expecting me to be there, I am sorry but going my best to be back soon. Thanks for all your good wishes."

Eamonn also sadly missed the funeral of his friend due to his illness, and tweeted: "The thing I despise my bout of sickness for is not missing work or The National Television Awards tonight, but missing The Funeral of Jackie Hatton… Can't believe she is gone. Such sadness for her husband, sons, family & friends. RIP."
