Ruth Langsford has picked up some serious skills from her time in the This Morning makeup chair. With her usual stylists now in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic, Ruth has been tasked with getting herself ready ahead of her hosting duties on This Morning – and on Wednesday she shared a video with fans showing how she is getting on. The 60-year-old posted a sped-up video documenting her routine, filmed in the presenters' makeup room at the ITV studio.

Earlier this week, ITV released a statement on Twitter after a number of viewers expressed concern about the couple. It read: "For anyone who's worried @EamonnHolmes and @RuthieeL are actually married in real life, so it's safe for them to sit close to each other in the studio," it read. The post prompted a slew of comments from fans. "Why can't they do the show from home like lots of other programmes? Putting everyone else in the studio at risk," one remarked, to which a fan replied: "The skeleton crew are there for Good Morning Britain already, it's on the other side of the partition." Another viewer joked: "A married couple sitting so close together is never safe even in normal conditions lol!"
