Eamonn Holmes supports wife Ruth Langsford with G&T’s on Strictly Come Dancing as she’s paired up with Anton Du Beck
Ruth Langsford couldn’t control her excitement as she was swept into the welcoming arms of Anton Du Beck as he was announced as her pro partner during the Strictly launch show.
Viewers at home were all in agreement it was no surprise that the Strictly veteran would be paired up with the This Morning host.
“What a surprise Ruth gets picked with Anton…not! #rolleyes” quipped one sarcastic fan on Twitter.
Whatever happens, husband Eamonn Holmes has already promised he will be providing the g&t’s as his wife continues her Strictly journey.
In an adorable video, that gave a hilarious glimpse into the TV duo’s home life, Eamonn appeared with Ruth as he told the camera: “I think it’s Ruth, because since the whole Strictly experience started, I’m just not sure who is going to arrive home and in what form and what dress.”
“Anyway, where’s my gin and tonic?” Loose Women presenter Ruth demanded before Eamonn delivers her favourite tipple right on cue.
“How good a husband am I?” jokes Eamonn.
With support like that Ruth, 57, could be in good standing to make her way through the competitive series.
Although after her pairing with long-standing dancer Anton, 51, viewers at home weren’t so sure.
“Anton kiss the Glitter ball goodbye,” said one fan.
“What a surprise, Ruth & Anton. Wish the producers could mix the pairings up a bit. Strictly ” fired another.
“They obviously don’t fancy Ruth ‘s chances then…” mocked a third.
Ruth was disappointed to have been revealed as the least favourite to win the show before she’d even started dancing.
Hitting back at her critics, the This Morning presenter said: “Actually, it doesn’t even worry me as the whole thing is a competition and an entertainment show. It is so popular and everybody loves it, and I am determined to enjoy it. There’s good odds, bad odds, but they obviously haven’t seen me twerking on ‘Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’.”
Although as the Strictly launch aired, some fans rushed to Twitter to show their support for the Loose Women : “Ruth gets Anton what a great match!” said one.
“Well we’ve already got our winners!! Go on Anton and Ruth !” added another.
“YES! Anton has someone who could be half decent for once! Love both him and Ruth!” said a third supporter.
Ruth’s mum and son Jack were in the audience to watch her strut her stuff for the opening night.
“My mum loves Anton,” joked Ruth.
“I’m very popular with the mums… and the nans Anton.
