Ruth Langsford fans flood her with support after she shares update on mum

By Jessica Sansome

Ruth Langsford has been inundated with support from fans after she shared a video of her 'battered and bruised' mum after she suffered a nasty fall.

The This Morning star has a super close relationship with her mum Joan and often shares updates from their time together.

Ruth, 61, also shared her heartbreak throughout the coronavirus pandemic as she, like many up and down the country, was unable to see her mum, who is in a care home.

The TV star took to Instagram on Sunday to share that Joan wouldn't be joining her and husband Eamonn Holmes at their home this weekend because of an accident.

Ruth shared a sweet video of Joan with the family's dog, Maggie, alongside a message explaining why.

The Loose Women presenter wrote: "Sadly no Mum for Sunday lunch today… she’s had a fall. Nothing broken thank goodness but quite battered and bruised poor love.

"She needs a walking frame to get around at the moment and is still in some pain but typical Mum…stoic and cheerful as ever.

"Maggie giving her some healing love."

Gogglebox star Izzi Warner was among the first to comment, writing: "Aww bless, hope she's back to herself soon."

"Hope she recovered well soon, lovely to have a Maggie (and Ruth!) visit," This Morning baker and cook Juliet Sear added.

Fans also offered their support.

"Big cuddle for your lovely mum, get well soon ," one said.

Another wrote: "Aww bless her heart, hope she gets better soon Ruth, much love."

"Aah. Hope she’s ok. Will miss her sherry dance this week," a third added.

A fourth added: "It’s not a proper Sunday if we don’t see her prepping the veg. Wish her well."

Ruth usually shares a Sunday update on her mum as she helps her prep the dinner and having a dance and singalong in the kitchen.

But mainly, followers get to see how much Maggie showers Joan with lots of love.

Ruth and her beloved mum Joan were finally reunited in March after being forced to spend a year apart due to Covid restrictions.

During lockdown, Ruth would share heartbreaking photos and videos of her seeing her mum through the window of her care home.

At the time Ruth shared: "I got to see my Mumma again....SO happy! Covid test, PPE & only allowed 1hr but it’s worth it just to hold her hand.

"Thank you to all the staff for working so hard to make this happen."

Then in May, Ruth was finally able to take Joan out for some time outdoors.
