Ruth Langsford's fart-free home

Ruth Langsford hasn't broken wind in front of husband Eamonn Holmes in 20 years.

The 'This Morning' presenter has admitted she despises all things related to toilet troubles and claims that she has never, and would never, cock her leg to let one rip - regardless of how many years she has been married to her co-presenter.

Despite this, Ruth admitted she did once accidentally blow off in a builder's face when she was pregnant.

In a discussion about farting in front of a significant other on 'Loose Women', she said: "Not in a million years would I lift my leg and let one rip. I would be embarrassed."

When asked about Eamonn's reaction to those unavoidable silent but violent ones, the 55-year-old said: "We just pretend it hasn't happened.

"I just hold it in and go and do it privately somewhere, or go and wander in the garden.

"I don't like talking about toilet things. I would never in a million years be in the bath and let him come in and use the loo while I was laying in the bath."

Despite the 'How The Other Half Lives' co-presenter's efforts to avoid a gassy blunder, a house visit saw her face a moment of utter embarrassment.

She said: "I did one when I was very heavily pregnant with Jack and we just moved in to our new house and they come and do that snagging thing - when a crack appears and they do it all for free.

"We had quite a steep staircase and I was going up the stairs with this man, who I had never met before, very closely behind me.

"I was three steps up, so his face was right by my bottom and I was going, 'There's a little crack here,' and then I went [blew off].

"And you have that split second where you either go, 'I'm so sorry', or you don't. I didn't. I just carried on.

"He might be watching going, 'That woman farted in my face.' "
