Explaining all on the ITV two years ago, Ruth detailed the “really romantic” moment and peoples reactions to it.
She recalled: “We were at the races in a box with some people and I’d had a few drinks and had won a bit on the horses and was having a lovely time.
“Eamonn had gone out to the loo and when he came back, there were men in the box with us flirting and chatting to me.”
The mother-of-one continued: “He said, ‘I don’t like that them flirting with my wife’. And then he went, ‘Actually, she’s not my wife. She should be my wife.’
