Ruth Langsford's 15-year-old son Jack was left "embarrassed" by her latest 'Strictly Come Dancing' outfit after she slipped into a glamorous evening dress for a romantic Bond girl-inspired rumba with professional partner Anton Du Beke
Ruth Langsford's 15-year-old son was "embarrassed" by her latest 'Strictly Come Dancing' attire.
The 57-year-old TV presenter's husband Eamonn Holmes was a huge fan of her outfit for Saturday night's (07.10.17) show, for which she slipped into a glamorous evening dress featuring a daring thigh-high split to transform into a Bond girl - but their boy Jack was not quite as impressed.
She explained: "He said, 'Bet I'll get some comments about that at school on Monday.'
"That opening shot of me trying to be sultry was maybe a bit embarrassing for him."
Ruth also donned a blonde wig for her rumba to 007 theme tune 'Diamonds are Forever' with professional partner Anton Du Beke as Eamonn and Jack watched on from the audience, and she admitted the teen has been a great help throughout the process.
She added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "He's really supportive."
Ruth and Anton's rumba only earned them a score of 15 but they managed to avoid the dreaded dance-off which saw Reverend Richard Coles and his professional partner Dianne Buswell take on celebrity chef Simon Rimmer and Karen Clifton.
But sadly for the rev - a former member of The Communards - all four judges, Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel-Horwood, and Bruno Tonioli, opted to save the top cook, sending the priest packing.
Last Thursday (05.10.17), Ruth revealed she had a "meltdown" after her rehearsal because she was struggling to master the steps for her rumba.
In a video uploaded to her Twitter account she said: "I had a real meltdown at 'Strictly Come Dancing' training with Anton today. Well not meltdown as in anger, I just started crying."
She accompanied the clip with the caption: "OMG....I actually cried at training today with @mrantondubeke Awks!! He was lovely about it of course. Flippin' Rumba! (sic)"
