The 57-year-old TV star and Eamonn, 58 - who have been married since 2010 - are completely open and honest with each other about their fears and frustrations, even if it leads them to bicker between themselves.

Ruth confessed: "Believe me, you wouldn't want to see us having a full blown row on TV, especially from me!"

Ruth and Eamonn often co-present ITV's 'This Morning', and she believes that their popularity stems from their relatability.

The veteran broadcaster explained that although she's married to Eamonn, she doesn't feel compelled to agree with him all of the time - which makes for more entertaining viewing.

She explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We bicker because we are a couple, but most couples would admit most rows are silly.

"It is all the stupid stuff like leaving the milk out, and when you look at it, it is ridiculous.

"I am married to Eamonn, but I don't have to agree with everything he says, that would be dull to me."

The loved-up couple - who have a 16-year-old son called Jack - relish working together, because they have such a good understanding, on and off the TV screen.

Ruth explained: "People relate to us because we are a real-life couple, it adds that extra dimension.

"Co-presenting is like driving and it is not easy because sometimes someone wants to turn left and someone wants to turn right but we have that unspoken thing.

"And 99 percent of the time I know how he is going to respond. We don't need to say anything and that's nice."
