‘Shock discovery’ behind UK TV golden couple Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford’s split

British TV golden couple Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have split after messages between him and another woman were found on a laptop, The Sun on Sunday can reveal.

The pair became household names in the UK after they started hosting ITV This morning in 2006. Their on-screen chemistry captured the hearts of viewers and they worked on the show until 2021.

Langsford’s shocking discovery six weeks ago led to the announcement that they were separating after 14 years of marriage.

It comes after we told last week how presenter Holmes became close friends with a blonde divorcee in her 40s, who works as a relationship counsellor.

The Belfast-born presenter went on a trip with her and showered her with gifts.

It is understood that the messages the Loose Women host Langsford came across were from and to the same woman.

Meanwhile, a photo has emerged of Eamonn on a day out at a safari park in February, where the woman is thought to be seen through the rear window of a vehicle.

A source said: “Ruth was completely taken by surprise when she saw the messages.

“He had no idea what was going on between them. She was devastated.

“Not only was she very upset, she was also angry.”

Eamonn has left their marital home in Surrey.

Meanwhile, Langsford is taking a long break from ITV’s Loose Women as he struggles to deal with the breakdown of their marriage. In the last year, Holmes has given the woman a Beyoncé concert, a visit to Center Parcs and tickets to see her beloved Manchester United at Old Trafford.

They became friends after she commented on one of his social media posts and immediately struck up a relationship.

Holmes also supported a charity related to his consulting work, helping to host a fundraising event for free.

Last week, a source close to the Northern Irish star said: “He works for a charity that Eamonn is involved with from time to time.”

Holmes and Langsford announced on May 25 that they had separated and were divorcing, as revealed exclusively by The Sun on Sunday.

Ruth confided that there is “no way out” for their marriage.

The cracks had become apparent after the couple, who have son Jack, 22, had not been photographed together for around two years.

It was reported that GB News host Holmes’ health problems, including crippling back pain, had put a strain on their relationship.

But Langsford’s friends say she was “shocked” by the claims that were the reason for their split.

Holmes praised his wife for her “amazing” support after he fell down the stairs at home in November 2022.

And last month she was visiting when he had a stint in hospital following another medical scare.

Earlier this year, Holmes detailed his ongoing “epidemic of pain” that left him relying on a walking stick and a wheelchair.

And he said the “harsh reality” may be that he may never be able to walk without assistance again.

Last year he was unable to attend his mother Josie’s funeral due to his health.

Speaking about his woes, he said: “It’s like someone up there is playing with my life. “Last year I had a back operation that went wrong and left me in a wheelchair. I fell and broke my shoulder. Honestly, you couldn’t make that up.

Langsford spoke publicly about their split for the first time on Thursday, when she thanked fans for their messages of support during a live stint on shopping channel QVC.

Before news of their split broke, in a discussion on Loose Women last month, Ruth confessed that it wouldn’t bother her too much if her husband left her for a 25-year-old.

She said: “The worst thing would be if she left with someone her own age. This is my worst fear.
