The couple are parents to Jack, 16, but unlike a lot of celebrity kids, he is rarely seen on their social channels.

The Loose Women host, 58, recreated a childhood image with Jack, as was the challenge set to all the presenters on the show.

Snuggling in bed next to her youngster, we couldn't help but see an uncanny likeness to his father, Eamonn, 58.

The original picture showed Ruth looking far more exhausted as a new parent - and although she was 16 years younger, we think she looks even more fabulous now.

Ruth joked that it took "some persuading" to convince Jack to take part in the challenge, who is currently revising for his upcoming GCSE exams.

Mel B, who was a guest on the show, laughed: "He does not look happy!", to which Ruth replied: "He was saying 'really mum, do I have to do this?' So thank you, Jack!"

Ruth and Eamonn tied the knot in 2010 after meeting in 1997. Together, they front the Friday episode of This Morning, sharing the duties with Monday to Thursday hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. 

Eamonn also has three other children from his first marriage - Rebecca, 26, Declan, 28 and Niall, 24.
