The 'This Morning' host has made no secret of the fact he struggled while he was spouse was competing on the ballroom and latin competition because he barely got to see her and, although he's sad she'll no longer take to the dance floor every weekend with her partner Anton du Beke, he's glad they can finally get back to normality.

Taking to his Twitter account last night after it was revealed the 57-year-old presenter had left the show, he wrote: "Well it's #Strictly over and my darling @RuthieeL has no complaints. Thanks to the support of you amazing folk she had an amazing run with an amazing partner. I am feeling a lot of Love for her out there but I am also looking forward to having my Wife & our Life back. (sic)," followed by a thumbs up emoji.

Ruth then took to her social networking site to thank her husband and their 15-year-old son Jack for supporting her every weekend and putting up with her absence at home.

She replied: "And thank you my darling and our wonderful son Jack for being there to support me EVERY week. Love you both (sic)."

Ruth and Anton were given the best send off in last night's results show as the rest of the 'Strictly Come Dancing' gang wrestled them to the ground and piled on top of them after they had finished their final dance - a little tribute to them after the 'Loose Women' panellist hit the headlines earlier this month when she straddled Anton to save their routine after he accidentally tripped and landed flat on the floor.

The professional dancer joked: "It wasn't to be this time! Thanks so much for the love and continued support. @RuthieeL I'm so proud of you and all you achieved! Good luck to everyone going to Blackpool next week, I'm glad you've learnt our signature dance move. Pile on! #SCD #Strictly (sic)."
