The 57-year-old slapped away Eamonn’s, 58, hand after he was seen groping her knee on the studio sofa as she continued to read her script on her tablet.
Ruth did not look impressed with her husband and co-presenter – but luckily the scenes were all in jest and part of a Love Island-esque sketch with hilarious commentary from Iain Stirling, who does the voiceover for the ITV dating show.
The breakfast show cut to Ruth and Eamonn sitting on the sofa with one of his hands firmly planted on her knee stroking it as she ignored him.
“Watching Joel Dommett on the television has got Ruth and Eamonn in the mood for a little bit of love,” Iain told viewers.
However, Ruth was having none of it and swiftly swatted Eamonn’s hand away from her and continued to look away from him.
Iain continued: “But Ruth has mugged Eamonn right off! Eamonn needs to do some serious grafting if he’s going to become Ruth’s type on paper.”

The This Morning hosting duo continued to act out scenes as she pretended to fall asleep as Iain went on to say: “She’s having absolutely none of it. Unfortunately, Eamonn has been dumped out of the This Morning villa! Will those two make up?”
These comedic scenes came shortly before Ruth and Eammon interviewed Iain about how he ended up hosting Love Island, coming from a stand-up background.
Along with the funny skit, Ruth suffered an unfortunate moment on the show after the studio lights made her top go sheer.
