Ruth shares an incredibly close relationship with her mum, Joan

In March, Ruth and her beloved mum Joan were finally reunited after being forced to spend a year apart due to coronavirus restrictions. Prior to their reunion, Ruth had become visibly emotional on Loose Women as she spoke about her mother.

The panellists were debating visiting rights at care homes when Ruth tearfully shared: "This is very close to my heart as my mum has not been out of her care home since March. The biggest concern for lots of people is if they die and you haven't actually held them.

"I've seen my mum through a window, I phone her all the time, but I haven't physically touched and that's always a big concern." She continued: "I can't praise the care workers at my mum's care home enough, they are incredible. But they are doing their daily jobs and are very, very busy."
