Eamonn Holmes has shared a beautiful throwback photograph of his wife Ruth Langsford. The gorgeous snap, sent to him by a fan on Twitter, prompted him to ask his followers for any other old photographs they had of him or Ruth - leading to a long thread of sweet memories. "Anyone else got any old photos of me or Ruth tucked away? Great reliving the past," he replied to the original tweet, which read: "Just going through my grandparents old photos! @EamonnHolmes I think my grandad was sweet on your missus in the 80s! #televisionsouthwest #whatabeauty."

A young (and brunette!) Ruth smiles into the camera happily, posing with her colleague. Eamonn also responded: "A lovely memory. I wonder where and when?" to which the poster said: "Such a great picture!! My mum thinks it might have been at Plymouth Argyle. I remember Ruth presenting on television south west when I was a child. Such a beauty!" Eamonn sweetly added: "Could be… she always talks fondly of @Only1Argyle."
