Forgetting an anniversary is a pretty big crime in any relationship but when the date slipped Ruth Langsford’s mind live on television it was as awkward as could be.
Ruth was fronting ITV’s The Saturday Show with her husband Northern Irish presenter Eamonn Holmes when she couldn’t remember the date they wed.
The pair were competing in a Mr & Mrs style quiz on the weekend show when she covered her face in embarrassment having forgotten the all-important date.
"You so don't know! Shame on you,” Eamonn said before reciting the date flawlessly.
"This is when the whole thing falls apart,” he said.
The couple wed in June 2010, and are currently covering for Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield as they take a summer hiatus from This Morning.
Eamonn later tweeted: “No man would get away with forgetting his Wedding Anniversary. Imagine the abuse I would get if I forgot.”
Red-faced Ruth later apologised to her other half on Twitter and said that although the date slipped her mind, it was still the happiest day in her memory.
Ruth wrote: “Ooooops!!! Sorry darling....it was still the best day of my life, even if I can't remember the date!”
