Ruth Langsford makes emotional return to Loose Women after This Morning axe saying 'people thought I'd left'

RUTH Langsford returned to screens after being axed from This Morning alongside her husband Eamonn Holmes.

The 60-year-old presenter hosted Loose Women today – admitting that people had thought she'd quit the show.

The star explained: "People were asking if I'd left. I'm delighted to be back."

She teased the panel in the studio, which included Janet Street-Porter and Linda Robson, about where she had been.

Ruth explained: "I took some time off. I don't want to make you jealous where I've been beacuse I know it's difficult."

Asked if she's been anywhere exotic, she replied: "It was actually quite chilly. It was my front drive because I've got a skip."

Eamonn revealed he and Ruth were "getting on with our lives" after their final show as This Morning's regular Friday hosts.

The pair took a break from TV in the wake off the move, which saw Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary take over.

However, they will return to This Morning in the February half term, as they made clear in their farewell tweet.

Ruth and Eamonn posted: "We hope you make Alison and Dermot as welcome as you’ve made us over the years. Have a Ball you two!

"It’s not Goodbye from us, it’s simply Au Revoir until the next half term."

The pair were forced out as part of a shake-up on the ITV daytime hit, though main hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were kept on as the Monday to Thursday hosts.
