Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford boost earnings by over £1million as businesses flourish

THIS Morning stars Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford tour the world rubbing shoulders with the richest people for their Channel 5 show How The Other Half Lives.

But we can reveal the hard-working couple have a successful business empire of their own that puts them firmly into the bracket of millionaires.

They have interviewed the super-wealthy like West Ham boss David Sullivan – who invited the couple to look around his 7.5 million mansion – and super-rich Russians for their shows.

And their screen success has seen Eamon and Ruth, both 61, boost their earnings by over £1million as their businesses flourish.

They both earn large salaries from presenting and they own a mansion in Surrey worth millions.

It would compare nicely to the pads of the wealthy people they are interviewing on telly.

Their firm Holmes and Away – described as set up to receive income from radio broadcasting – raked in more than £500,000 in 2020 and owes £116, 241 in Corporation Tax.

Another outfit for television activities called Red, White and Green run by Eamonn has £1.1million in cash according to accounts for 2020 and investments of £1.7 m.

And a company called Hey-Ho Ltd in Ruth’s name for “theatrical” business has resources of £1.5m.

But your health is your wealth as Eamonn knows – and the star has revealed he's "living with chronic pain" that's turned him into an insomniac.

The beloved TV host messaged fans on twitter as he struggled to sleep last month.

"In that Twilight Zone between Night time and Morning," he wrote.

"Anyone else find these Hours the worst…. particularly if you suffer Chronic pain?"

He said "night is the worst" and there's "no escape".

Eamonn added: "I just want people who suffer to know there are others and maybe they can talk to each other and swap advice on here?"

He spent the early hours talking to fans who were also nocturnal – and comforted them about their own health struggles.

Eamonn underwent a double hip operation in 2016.

The stand-in This Morning presenter later admitted he feared he would die during the op after hearing his pal Sir Terry Wogan had passed away just hours before.

He told the Daily Star: "It was very foreboding. I was not very optimistic about the whole thing."
