What is Ruth’s net worth?

Ruth is currently estimated to be worth £3.8million in sole earnings according to several estimation websites.

This is taking into account her long-standing role as a weekly presenter on This Morning and Loose Women and her claim to the £3million house she shares with her husband.

However, this number is just an estimation and doesn’t take into account Eamonn’s earnings.
