Currently, hairdressers and beauty salons are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Potentially, they could reopen on June 15 - but the Government say they are reviewing the evidence.

"They say you look so beautiful for your age, they say you look so wonderful."

Ruth then added: "Yeah it's really annoying me actually because I really haven't."

And Eamonn continued her defence with a little bit of a light-hearted dig.

He said: "I don't like to boast, I don't like to talk, I don't blow my own horn but it's hours of prep that goes into Ruth."

With him then admitting that he himself had put rollers in Ruth's hair and touched up her roots.

"So they can hopefully stop saying, 'ooh Ruth has obviously gone to the hairdressers' cos I haven't," she said, ending the chat.
