Eamonn Holmes shared a sweet photograph of himself and wife Ruth Langsford on Saturday, revealing the couple have taken a short trip away to Bodrum, Turkey for the weekend. As the pair posed in front of a beautiful ocean backdrop, he wrote: "The colours, the view, the sea breeze, the sun on our faces. Refresh and Restore @mo_bod." Ruth and Eamonn are staying in the luxurious Mandarin Oriental during their holiday. Plenty of fans were quick to send supportive comments, particularly following the recent passing of Ruth's sister Julia in June.

"A lovely picture Eamonn. You and Ruth have a wonderful holiday, you so deserve this peaceful time together," one wrote, while another added: "A much needed break for you both - enjoy." Some of Eamonn's followers were worried the presenting pair would be missing the next This Morning instalment because of their trip, though Eamonn seemed to confirm that they would be back for Monday's show, replying with a thumbs-up emoji to a comment that read: "Have a lovely break I hope you are back Monday."
