Ruth Langsford, 61, has been supported by many of her one million Instagram followers this afternoon as she revealed she was struggling with a painful injury. The This Morning star took to the social media platform to share a video of herself on a “brisk walk” with one of her friends.

The pair were accompanied on their walk by Ruth and husband Eamonn Holmes’ pet dog Maggie.

Ruth told fans she has been forced to abandon her running regime this week after sustaining a back strain.

It comes after the star has been updating her followers on her progress after getting involved in the NHS’ Couch to 5k over the last month.

She wrote in the caption: “Picked up a bit of a back strain so haven’t been running this week….brisk walking with my BFF @hungrywomancooks & Maggie today, breaking into a little trot occasionally (esp when it rained!) 

“Will be back on @couch_2_5k Week 8 as soon as possible. 

“Hope you’re all doing well wherever you are on the programme….keep at it! #runwithruth #couchto5k.”

Ruth’s injury comes as her husband Eamonn has been documenting his struggles with chronic pain.

Fans took to the comments section of the presenter’s post to send her their well wishes.


One person wrote: “Look after yourself Ruth! Hope your back is okay.”

Another added: “Maybe a sign you are pushing yourself too much Ruth.”

A third fan commented: “Look after yourself and stay safe and well, take it easy Ruth, you don’t need to rush, as long as you can keep on the move you will be able to run again soon. Take care and look after yourself and family.”

A fourth penned: “Ruth take it easy, it’s well known that excess exercise can be damaging.Everyone admires you, but cramp & knee trouble could result For the time being it is enough, you are so admired.We want you & Eamon around for the Hols.”

A fifth wrote: “You and poor Eammon with bad backs hope your better soon hot water bottle and deep heat xx.”(sic)

“Don’t over do it Ruth running is quite high impact on your joints xx,” a sixth fan replied.

Meanwhile, Eamonn has been suffering with chronic pain for the past few months after slipping discs in his back and dislocating his pelvis.

He recently revealed he’s in a “race against time” to get back to normal.

The This Morning star admitted he has to get his strength back in his back before his steroid injections “run out”.

“For me, I’m in a race against time to strengthen my back before my steroid injections — which do ease the pain — run out.”

Eamonn also revealed the threat of being in a wheelchair is looming over him.

“It’s quite depressing because every day you get up and hope you’ve done better and you have treatment and it still hurts like hell!” he told

He continued: “People say, ‘How did it happen?’ but I have no idea why in such a short space of time you go from being healthy to being told your nerves are dead in your leg because of your back and it might take a year before there’s improvement, and you’ve no choice but to do the exercises otherwise you’ll be sitting in a wheelchair.

“I took my health for granted — it’s what you do. Millions of people are suffering far worse pain than me.”
