Eamonn Holmes has an "unhealthy obsession" with Ruth Langsford.
The 'This Morning' host is the "jealous" type when it comes to his wife - who presents the show alongside him every Friday - and admitted she "fascinates" him.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: "I have this unhealthy obsession with Ruth, and I love being around her.
"I actually get quite jealous when anyone is taking her time away from me.
"When I'm alone with her and I have her totally to myself, there is no-one else I want to be with. She fascinates me."
Indeed, the 54-year-old star is still madly in love with his wife of four years and still finds himself thinking about how lucky he is when the they are on the air together.
Asked whether their partnership reaffirms their romance, he recently told new! magazine: "Yes and sometimes it's nice to sit back during an interview, while chats are going on back and forth between Ruth and the guest, and I'll think, 'She's gorgeous and she's my wife - I'm married to her!' "
