The emotional reunion comes after she broke down in tears last month after revealing she hadn’t physically touched her mother Joan for months due to the pandemic.  

Ruth spoke further about her visit with her mum on Loose Women, revealing that their meeting was ‘very emotional’ and that she had ‘a little cry’.

Speaking further about the visit, she told The Mirror: ‘It was lovely. We both cried, but they were happy tears. It was very emotional.

‘It had been a year since we’d been together, but we fell very quickly and very easily back into that relationship we’d had.’

Joan currently resides in a Surrey residential home, just a stone’s throw away from Ruth and husband Eamonn Holmes’ pad.   

During their first meeting after a year apart, Ruth revealed they quickly fell back into a routine as she made Joan tea, watered her plants and got her advice on a challenging crossword puzzle. 

They also sat down to chat about what’s been on TV while holding onto each other’s hands ‘very tightly’.
