Emotional Ruth Langsford today walked off set after a segment on the show triggered memories of her late sister.
Ruth’s beloved elder sister Julia passed away in June after a long battle with her mental health and a phone-in on anxiety was suddenly too much for the star to bear.
As one viewer described her on-going battle with anxiety to This Morning’s resident psychologist, Ruth quietly disappeared backstage.
Once the phone call had finished, her husband and co-host Eamonn Holmes explained to viewers what had happened.
He said: “Ruth is upset and had to leave the studio because of her sister’s chronic dporession.”
Once the segment had finished and before the show cut to the break, he added: “These things are very raw for her following the death of her sister.”
