It’s over for Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford

TV presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford are getting a divorce after 14 years of marriage, a spokesperson for the pair has confirmed.

The couple announced the sad news over the weekend.

Their representatives issued a joint statement:

“Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have confirmed their marriage is over and they are in the process of divorcing.”

It is believed their split was caused by conflicting schedules.

A source told The Sun that they were like ships passing in the night as work commitments caused a divide between the pair.

The insider explained that they both started going in different directions which eventually caused them to grow apart.

“Eamonn and Ruth’s relationship changed when they left This Morning. They started moving in different directions in their careers and their priorities started to change.

“Eamonn was desperate to return to Belfast, which he thinks of as home, but Ruth would never move. It became a bone of contention.

“As her ITV career continued, Eamonn went down another path and they became ships in the night,” they explained.

Eamonn and Ruth tied the knot on June 26th, 2010. They married near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire and welcomed one child together.

They share son Jack, but have vowed to remain friends following their split.
