After working together for over 15 years, it’s no surprise that former This Morning presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford are one of Britain’s favourite celebrity couples, but what does life look like at home for the pair when they aren’t on TV?

Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes are one of the nation’s favourite television couples, having presented This Morning together for 15 years.
And although Eamonn recently parted ways with the daytime chat show to work with GB News, the duo – who have been a couple since 1996 and married since 2010 – are still going strong behind closed doors.
Together with their son Jack, 20, they live in a stunning six-bedroom home in Surrey, Weybridge just outside of London, that is estimated to be around £3.25million.
The spacious family home boasts two living rooms, a study and a beautiful kitchen.
The couple often give their Instagram fans a peek inside their enviable mansion with their regular updates about their low-key life off camera.
While Celebrity Gogglebox fans will recognise their livingroom from their time sofa-surfing on the hit show.
So let’s take a peek around their grand house, starting, naturally, at the front door.
During the days of #ClapForCarers, when it was respectable to be clapping hands or hitting pots and pans of an evening to celebrate the NHS, Ruth shared the following clip to Instagram.
Now if your eyes don’t automatically go towards their dog Maggie in the background, you’ll notice that the front of their house has brick walls and a wide stone step.
The entrance door is surrounded by windows on either side (hence spotting Maggie) and is framed by two topiary plants in matching black glossy pots.
Take a step inside and you’re greeted by a large wooden staircase with cream carpet trim, and white marble flooring.
Large doors in the right hand corner lead… Well, we’re not sure but in this instance, we’re headed to the living room.
One of them, at least.

Dotted about a large cream corner sofa are a splay of purple and bronze cushions. The marble flooring from the foyer has turned to wood panelling, which matches the golden pattern on the wallpaper.
White double doors appear to open up onto the garden.
Ruth, sat on a green yoga mat, appears to have just completed a workout on her iPad with her hair pulled back off her face and wearing a grey sports T-shirt.
We could be wrong, but the dog bed in the corner might suggest that this is Maggie’s room of choice for relaxing with her forever family.
Followers of Ruth on Instagram will often see inside her spacious kitchen as she regularly likes to film cleaning and cooking demonstrations.
A central island means she has plenty of space to whip up a feast for friends and family, made all the easier by a number of integrated appliances and tidy cupboards.
It makes sense to move from the kitchen to the dining area, which is just as impressive as you might have imagined from the TV couple.
With space for a large oval communal table, big enough to seat eight people, and ample room for manoeuvring, it’s no wonder they chose this room to celebrate their son Jack’s 18th birthday.
A large glass cabinet hosts what appears to be crystal and other glassware, and the windows are covered by crushed velvet curtains in the same neutral gold/cream shade as we’ve seen featured around the house.
Based on our detective deductions, and the different colour wallpaper, we think the impressive fireplace must live in the second of Ruth and Eamonn’s living rooms.
The fire, which to our eyes appears electric, sits beneath a gold-trimmed mantel and widescreen TV.
Two large candles on either side of the mantelpiece add to the warm, cosy feel of the family space.
Away from the hustle and bustle of family life at home, Eamonn has his own private Manchester United-inspired man cave for an office.
And yet, despite having the perfect football hideaway to himself, Eamonn has previously admitted that moving home to Belfast is not off the cards in future.
He told Belfast Live : “Oh aye, that would be very much the way I’d see the future, yes. It’s funny, places and people change but that would be very much my ambition, to be home full time.
“I miss Belfast a lot. When I’m busy it’s harder to miss it because I’m engrossed in what I’m doing, but when I stop it hits me. When I’m home, I’m always with my friends and brothers, and my mum who’s 92.”
A slightly more glamorous part of the house (no offence to Eamonn and his football shrine) as we enjoy a relaxing moment with Ruth on an outside sofa.
The couple take great pride in their garden and you can just about spot the neat hedge trims behind Ruth.
The large grey couch, matching coffee table and bright green cushions pull the look together. As does Maggie, of course.
Ruth is known to garden with her mum, as the two tend to the huge flowerbeds that line the expanse of their Surrey home.
However, it would seem that Eamonn is actually the green-fingered one of the two, despite his wife poking fun at him for it.
Back inside and it’s time for an at-home workout with Ruth as she tends to utilise the space in her garage than heading to the gym.
Fitness videos are a regular feature on her Instagram page, with some envious fans pointing out how it must be nice to be able to afford a PT.
Ruth said: “Go for it Ruth! Amazing, it’s so good to feel strong,” whilst another added: “Oh my goodness @ruthlangsford you are looking absolutely fabulous.”
The garage has a traditional white fold-up door but is roomy enough that Ruth can try her hand at a range of different exercises.
She has been seen lifting weights, practicing her balance on a Bosu (to improve your core strength) and even hula hooping.
