Ruth Langsford ‘worried’ over having enough money to live on after TV exit

Loose Women: Ruth Langsford says she struggled with debt

During their candid chat, the presenter revealed that after delving into her finances she was left feeling worried about reaching retirement age, saying, “half of it worries me”.

Her comments come after the This Morning presenter alongside her husband Eamonn Holmes was replaced by Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond on the ITV programme after fronting the show for 15 years.

The former face of the show added: “I think, ‘oh my God,’ I hope I have got enough to live?”

The Loose Women presenter explained that since reaching her sixties she has started to think about her spending and future as an older woman having witnessed her parents’ living situation and their requirement for care home fees proved to be costly.

Ruth said she did not want her son being forced to look after her in old age, saying: “I don’t want Jack having to look after me. He’s only 21.”

She quipped: “Half of it worries me. Have I got enough to live? And half of it makes me laugh because I sometimes think, ‘Look at you having a meeting about your pension’.”

But the ITV host admitted she has no plans on retiring anytime soon, not because she is a workaholic, but because she admittedly loves her television work.

Ruth, who is approaching retirement age, was quizzed about whether she ever thinks of slowing down soon but admitted “I love what I do” and showed no signs of letting her age defy her.

“I enjoy work and am healthy enough to do what I can do and I love it,” she explained.

Ruth said that she often looks at another woman to inspire her and continue doing what she does best, adding: “I look at other people, particularly working women, who inspire me”.
