This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford left her fans wondering recently, as she took a prolonged break from posting on her social media accounts.
The 58-year-old is usually very active on her Twitter and Instagram pages, posting regular updates on her home life and work life.
Recently, shes been updating fans almost every day, on a brand new fitness challenge shes undertaken with her personal trainer Frank, to complete 15 minutes of exercise a day.
But followers of the star were left uncertain after Ruth had failed to post anything since the 18th April, meaning shed taken over a week off of her social media.
In a video, Ruth explained. She said to her followers, “Hello, long time no speak. Let me explain.
“Last week, Eamonn and I went to Vegas for a week filming for our new Channel 5 series, How the Other Half Live, coming soon.”
She continued, “But the night before we went, I did my back in getting my suitcase out of the loft.
“I dont know what I did, but it was very painful. And a ten-hour flight didnt help! I had to see a chiropractor when we were over in Vegas.”
She explained then that she hasnt been keeping up with her Fit With Frank routine, which she had earlier encouraged fans to take part in too.
Ruth Langsford said, “Consequently I havent taken part in my Fit with Frank workouts because I didnt want to make it worse. So I am a week behind you all.”
The presenting star also explained that she had opted for a more gentle exercise that day – walking her beloved dog, Maggie.
She revealed, “Im just walking, gently, trying to hold my core and trying not to hurt my back. But hopefully now, Im on the mend.”
Sounds like its been a painful few days for the Loose Women presenter! Following her revelation, Ruths fans were quick to send their well-wishes to her in the comments section of the video.
One wrote, Oh…hope you get better soon Ruth. Sounds awful!!”, while another said, “Best wishes for a speedy recovery from one sufferer to another. Xx
Some other Instagram users offered up some of their sage advice to Ruth, in order to help heal her painful back. One commented, Take it easy and dont over work that back
While another offered up some practical wisdom, writing, Both heat and ice packs will help – and arnica/ SBC do a great gel of arnica. I so know how you feel. Big hug
Were wishing Ruth a speedy recovery.
