With a long and lustrous career under her belt, Ruth’s become a permanent fixture on British TV screens over the years, despite her life starting somewhere completely different. Born in Singapore as the child of an army family, Ruth lived in five countries before the age of 10 ranging from Germany to North Africa, before finally settling in Cornwall.

The West Country is where her broadcasting career kick started, working as a continuity announcer and evening news presenter for ITV, before eventually moving into national television.  She is now known as one of the presenters of ITV's This Morning.

When this seasoned sister of the small screen is off duty, her major passion is cooking – something she showcased on ITV’s Marco’s Kitchen Burn Out in 2010.
