Ruth Langsford has shown that you don't need to hit the gym to get fit, in a new workout video filmed in her living room. The Loose Women presenter shared a clip of her exercise routine on Instagram on Tuesday, admitting she had found the workout "so hard".

Dressed in a black T-shirt and jogging bottoms, Ruth was put through her paces by a personal trainer, while her dog Maggie watched from the sofa. One of the moves she tried included ab crunches on the settee, to improve her core strength and tone her triceps. "Today the #GarageWorkOut has become #LivingRoomWorkOut @FitwithFrank is showing me how my sofa can be used for exercise and not just watching TV!" Ruth captioned the video. "This is SO hard! I'd love you to try it and tell me if I'm the only one who's struggling! Maggie not bothered!"

However, she isn't denying herself the occasional treat; on a meal out to celebrate her birthday with husband Eamonn Holmes and their son Jack, Ruth took a break from her healthy diet to enjoy a more indulgent treat – steak, egg and chips, washed down with a glass of white wine.
