Ruth Langsford has Strictly meltdown

uth Langsford had an emotional meltdown after her "Strictly Come Dancing" rehearsal last night (05.10.17) because she still can't master the steps of her dance.

The "This Morning presenter - who has been struggling to settle into the ballroom and latin show - is set to take to the floor with her professional partner Anton du Beke at the weekend to perform their romantic rumba, but she has admitted there's no love between her and the routine at the moment because she can't remember the footage.

Speaking in a video uploaded to her Twitter account last night, the 57-year-old star 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!"

However, it's hardly surprising that Ruth is struggling as she hurt her hamstring while preparing for her routine last week and is still dealing with the consequences of it.

Speaking earlier this week, she said: "It's not great, it's still strapped up."

But, despite her lack of spirit, Ruth has admitted her husband Eamonn Holmes - who she married in 2010 - has been very supportive while she's been off training.

She explained: "I have to say, Eamonn is doing a lot of this in tongue-in-cheek - he's so supportive. He's just there, asking me what I need and so he booked Sunday lunch. He has a gin and tonic and a bowl of ice for my feet, so he's been very supportive. Not much time for love. Not time for that.

"He's even bought a cardboard cut out of me. He calls himself a "Strictly Come Dancing" widow ... I said to him: "Excuse me, do you remember when you went into the jungle - you know when he went on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" the spin-off show - not one person rung me and said: "Can I bring a casserole round, Ruth?" Nobody does that to women." It's like, I've disappeared and he's going to die."
