Ruth Langsford has revealed the nickname her husband Eamonn Holmes goes by behind closed doors.

The 60 year old Loose Women presenter spoke to fellow panelists Janet Street-Porter, Kelle Bryan and Frankie Bridge about gardening on the ITV talk show.

Following the advice from media gardener Monty Don to keep your grass long and uncut, the four hosts discussed their own garden care.

Monty said: "Cutting grass burns lots of fossil fuel, makes a filthy noise and is about the most injurious thing you can do to wildlife."

"Whereas letting grass grow which is, after all, a pretty passive thing to do, is probably the single most effective thing you can do in any garden of any size to encourage particularly insect life, but also small mammals, invertebrates, reptiles."

In response, Ruth, who recently detailed the teary moment she reunited with her mum Joan after months apart, shared that she sent the article to her husband of 11 years Eamon, 61, as he was proud of their "stripy" lawn.

"I screenshotted it and sent it to Eamonn and he'll be fuming because he loves his stripy lawn,” the TV presenter revealed.

"What is it with sheds and lawns? When they get to 45 or 50 they suddenly become obsessed with the lawn,” Ruth joked before revealing the hilarious nickname she calls her husband.

"Eamonn wasn't like that when I met him,” she continued. “We call him the lawn police"

"I used to stand at the kitchen window with Jack and say 'look, the lawn police are out',” Ruth laughed. "He walks with his hands behind his back and it's really strange isn't it. They get this obsession."

While Eamonn has three children, Rebecca, Declan and Niall from his first marriage to his ex-wife Gabrielle, he also shares an 19 year old son called Jack with Ruth.

During the discussion about gardening, it seemed that singer Frankie Bridge’s husband, Wayne was also passionate about his lawn, just like Eamonn.

"Yeah I know. You're saying 45 to 50 but Wayne just turned 40, well he'll be 41 this year, and he's got this sit-on lawn mower,” The Saturdays star said, before revealing her concern that it was in order for her man to have some alone time."

The star, who recently explained why she doesn't discuss being a stepmum, continued: "I'm sure it's just to get away from the family,” she confessed. "He puts his head phones in and goes out there for holidays.”

"I'm eight years younger then him and it's not what I signed up for," Frankie laughed.
