Broadcasters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have announced they are going to divorce after 14 years of marriage.

The pair, who presented ITV daytime chat show This Morning together for 15 years before quitting the show in 2021, tied the knot in 2010.

They confirmed their split through a representative, who said: "Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have confirmed their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing."

After leaving This Morning, Holmes, 64, joined GB News where he presents the channel's breakfast show and Langsford, also 64, is a regular on ITV's Loose Women.

Together they also presented Channel 5 programmes including How The Other Half Lives and Do The Right Thing With Eamonn And Ruth, and made numerous appearances on Channel 4's Celebrity Gogglebox.

Holmes and Langsford started dating in 1997.

They have one son, Jack, who was born in 2002. Holmes also has three children, Declan, Rebecca and Niall, from his first marriage.

In the 2018 New Year Honours, Holmes became an OBE for services to broadcasting and was congratulated by Langsford, who called him her "darling".

Langsford has also been a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, where she was partnered with Anton Du Beke before he became a judge on the BBC show.
