Eamonn risked the wrath of viewers with his joke about Ruth’s weight.

Eamonn, 61, and Ruth, 60, were playing a game of “It’s Behind You.”

The picture was of Kate Middleton and the viewer gave the clue: “She’s very thin.”

Eamonn said: “She’s very thin…. well it’s not you darling.”

Ruth apparently brushed off his comment and continued to talk to the caller.

Eamonn got fans talking with his jokes on the show

But Eamonn’s joke backfired and fans of the show laid into him.

One wrote: “So apparently it’s OK for Eamonn Holmes to say that Ruth is fat or should look more like a model because it’s ‘a joke.”

A second stunned viewer said:”Did Eamonn just call Ruth fat?”

A third added: “That was rather unnecessary to call Ruth fat there Eamonn.”

This Morning's Ruth Langsford has had the coronavirus vaccine aged 61
Fans were stunned to learn Ruth’s age

Meanwhile This Morning fans were astonished by Ruth’s age today as she opened up about having the coronavirus vaccine.

The star, back on the show alongside husband Eamonn Holmes for the first time since they were axed from Fridays, explained she is 61 next month.

She said she was shocked to be invited to receive the vaccine, believing she was too young to be offered it now.

Ruth told viewers: “I’m 61 – I thought ‘This is too early.’ I called my surgery and they say no, no that’s absolutely right.

“It was amazingly well organised. It was quick, it was painless. I feel very lucky.”

However, many fans were stunned at her age – believing her to be ten years younger.

One tweeted: “Wait… Ruth is 61 ?! Thought 50, fair play.”

Another wrote: “I can’t believe Ruth is 61!! She looks great.”

Explaining she thought her offer to get the vaccine was fake because of her age, she said she had no side effects.

She wrote on Instagram: “Thought it was a scam message at first as I wasn’t expecting to be called until March!
