Northern Irish TV presenter Eamonn Holmes has said that he is worried about his wife Ruth Langsford's participation in Strictly Come Dancing after she sustained a ham string injury.

Ruth has been attending daily physiotherapy to keep in the running despite being bottom of the scoreboard.

Speaking to the The Mirror Eamonn said: "I say to her 'Are you OK? You look exhausted. Is it not time to step away? She is enjoying proving things to herself. I think she loves it."

He discussed the time apart from his wife and said: "The house can be lonely," he added. "I work longish hours and when I come home I think, 'Where is Ruthie?' She's not there."
