Ruth Langsford




The Answer Lies in the Soil

Gift Wrapped


Kitchen Burnout (participant)


Former continuity announcer and newsreader for the TSW region, who graduated to national daytime telly. Used to be seen on those TV Travel Shop things, which suddenly closed down a few years ago. She's now the main stand-in for Fern Britton on This Morning.


Partner of Eamonn Holmes.

At TSW, Langsford began as a trainee production assistant (and part-time puppeteer for station mascot Gus Honeybun) before graduating to on-screen duties around 1986.

Following on from TSW's loss of the ITV South West franchise, she had the dubious honour of closing down the station for the final time on Thursday 31st December 1992, alongside chief announcer Ian Stirling.
