Kicking off today's show, Eamonn said: "In regards to social distancing, don't bother phoning in and asking 'why are these two sitting close together?'.

"We are together, we live together. A lot of people think how could she have pulled him? But we even share a bed when I don't fall asleep downstairs in the sofa."

The cheeky presenter's wife Ruth added: "A lot of people think it's a fake marriage… they think I'm punching!"

Eamonn added: "If it was me and Rochelle Humes we would be two metres apart", as Ruth replied: "Much to your disappointment… you're stuck with me."

The Friday hosts welcomed guests to update viewers on the latest COVID-19 news.

Eamonn admitted: "A lot of people are very anxious. I'm looking at my wife, she's a very anxious person.

"I visibly watch her getting more and more anxious. She is addicted."

He then joked: "She puts on Piers Morgan and he scares the life out of her from 6am. I watch her face so anxious."

"You hear about the number of deaths."
