The popular This Morning presenter had to let wife Ruth Langsford go alone to the lavish awards ceremony, for the first time during the pair’s relationship.

The host was struck down with a mystery illness over the past few days, and posted a video to fans to explain why he wouldn’t be at the star-studded affair alongside his other half.

The video in question saw Ruth dressed to the nines alongside her sick hubby, who was sporting a comfortable grey dressing gown with a miserable face as he looked on at his jaw-dropping wife.

“Look! My little sick husband,” Ruth exclaimed. “This will be the first time I’ve been to the National Television Awards on my own, without you. He can’t even speak.” 

“I can’t speak, you’re looking too gorgeous,” Eamonn said to his wife, who stunned in a floor-length red gown. 

“She’s looking far too gorgeous,” he added, before giving her a smooch and sending her on her way.

“You’ll be fine if u take your medicine.”

He had previously complained about his cough and cold on Twitter the night before, writing: “Why do these Coughs & Colds get WORSE at night ? Just when u dare to believe u may be improving. I can’t take another night of this….”
