Ruth, 59, and her presenter husband Eamonn Holmes, also 59, were fronting a segment called ‘The Tricky Questions You Have To Answer’.
Viewers of the ITV show sent in their hilarious stories but there was one in particular that truly tickled Ruth.
This Morning fan Louise wrote in to tell the tale of the embarrassing moment her young son accompanied his grandma to a GP appointment.
“In the waiting room he asked her very loudly if the doctor was going to shine his torch up her bum again,” Ruth read out from her ipad.
No sooner had she finished the story that she descended into a fit of giggles.
While Eamonn looked bemused and then smirked himself, Ruth threw her head down and then had to wipe her eyes,
“That’s classic!” she said in response to the hilarious anecdote.
The camera then cut to chef Phil Vickery, who struggled to keep his composure too.
“I assume it was needed,” Eamonn asked once he managed to stop grinning.
“I would think it would be necessary if they are going to do that,” said a still-amused Ruth.
And while the pair – who are fronting the show all week while Phillip Schofield and Holly WIlloughby are on their half-term break- then cut to a competition, they continued to think about the viewer’s story when they returned.
Eamonn cheekily introduced the cooking segment by saying: “We are now going to shine a torch on how to make…”
Ruth and Phil then started laughing again, while Eamonn deadpanned: “What are you thinking about?”
