Ruth Langsford left This Morning studio after emotional segment

Ruth Langsford left the ‘This Morning’ studio in tears over her sister’s death.
The 59-year-old TV presenter had to leave after a caller’s story during a mental health segment on Monday (12.08.19) reminded her of her late sibling Julia’s own struggle with depression.
Her husband and co-host Eamonn Holmes explained: "Ruth is upset and had to leave the studio … because of her sister’s chronic depression.
"No matter what sort of help or medication, it didn’t seem to make much difference in the good times and bad times."
Ruth left while the ITV programme’s resident psychologist tried to help a viewer with her ongoing battle with anxiety and depression.
After the segment finished, Eamonn added: "These things are very raw for [Ruth] following the death of her sister."
She later returned after the commercial break.
Last month, Ruth returned to the show after stepping away from ‘This Morning’ for a leave of absence after her sister’s death in June.
The star had thanked her friends, family and fans for all the sympathetic messages she received following Julia’s passing, and insisted she felt "grateful" for the support.
Passing on a message from Ruth, Eamonn previously said: "Ruth wants me to say to the production team, everybody who works here in this studio, she said, ‘Everyone of them has been in touch,’ and she’s so grateful for everything that everybody has said.
"So, thank you. She can’t reply to everything. She reads them all, and it’s much, much appreciated."
