During a discussion with her fellow panellists, Ruth admitted she found “petals on the bed” romance a bit too much for her - only for Eamonn to suddenly come out from the wings, with a bouquet of flowers.
After giving his wife a cheeky kiss, to the sound of chanting from the ‘Loose Women’ audience, Eamonn said: “The only person more romantic than me that I know is [Jane Moore’s] husband, Gary.”

He added: “When I went to kiss you, that’s so you, you’re thinking ‘oh my lip-gloss’ - that’s exactly what you’re thinking. And that sums Ruth up, ‘oh this is all very nice, but not just now’.”
When Coleen Nolan joked that Eamonn could “smudge her lip gloss right round her face” and she wouldn’t mind, he then planted a smacker right on her lips too, to which he joked: “That brings me back.”

Eamonn didn’t have far to go to surprise Ruth, as he’d been called on to co-present Monday’s ‘This Morning’ with Holly Willoughby.
He was filling in for Phillip Schofield, who was unable to film, as his brother had fallen suddenly and unexpectedly ill.
The episode also featured a guest appearance from ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ medic Dr Christian Jessen, who stepped in to perform an HIV test on the panel, to show viewers how easy it is to get tested.
