‘Getting back into fitness after a very indulgent Christmas!’ Ruth Langsford, 61, is left with ‘trembling triceps’ while working on her health regime in gruelling workout video


Ruth Langsford proved she is starting 2022 as she means to go on by getting into the habit of regular workouts – one of which she shared on Monday.

The 61-year-old took to Instagram at the start of the week to share a clip of herself working up a sweat, with the session leaving her triceps ‘trembling’.

The This Morning host embarked on a health kick this January after admitting she’d overindulged over the festive period.

She wrote online: ‘Off to a flying start with @fitwithfrank today! Getting back into my fitness routine after a very indulgent Christmas! 

‘Using the @trxtraining strap thingy! Concentrating on upper body today….triceps are trembling! #fitness #training #trx #fitwithfrank #backontrack #newyear.’

In her video, Ruth could be seen doing a variety of exercises with the black resistance band which was anchored over a door at her home.

The broadcaster performed some mid air push-ups as well as some lunges while wearing some comfortable black activewear with cut out detail on the sides of her top.

At one point, she could be seen bursting into laughter as she struggled to complete her moves, with her arms shaking as she tried.

Ruth is no stranger to keeping her fans up to date with her fitness regime, with the screen star completing the Couch To 5K running plan last summer.

Last month, she gave fans a glimpse at her makeshift home gym after laying a black exercise mat out in her garage so she could perform some stretches, with Ruth writing: ‘[They] really help me particularly my tight old hamstrings!’

Ruth’s post comes after she confirmed last week that she will remain on This Morning despite her husband and presenting partner Eamonn Holmes leaving the programme.

Ruth will continue to anchor the show after Eamonn, 62, departed for GB News, on which he co-hosts Breakfast with Eamonn & Isabel alongside Isabel Webster.

Speaking to Best magazine, Ruth said: ‘I’m still at ITV, with This Morning and Loose Women.’  

She admitted she’s ‘very proud’ of her ‘news junkie’ husband, and hinted they could still team up for some new projects together in the future.

Ruth added: ‘I’m thrilled. It’s what he does best.He’s always been very entertaining on ‘This Morning’ – Eamonn can turn his hand to anything.

‘He’s a total news junkie. I’m very proud of him. Yes, no more This Morning together – but it doesn’t mean there aren’t other projects we can do together.’
