Eamonn Holmes told off by This Morning doctor for joking about sharing medicine

Eamonn Holmes was told off by Dr Philippa Kaye after he joked about taking his wife Ruth Langsford 's medication.

The 61-year-old was hosting This Morning alongside his wife Ruth when the awkward moment occurred.

When talking about their medicine cupboard, Eamonn said to Ruth: "I always think – well I didn't exactly finish that course [of medicine] but I'll keep that in case of an emergency, in case Ruth bursts into a fever."

Ruth replied: "But I wouldn't take any old tablets."

Eamonn then said: "You won’t take any tablets, you won’t even take new tablets. I even take yours."

Dr Philippa quickly interjected: "Eamonn and Ruth please don't share your medication.

"We don't know who’s going to react to what."

Ruth quickly explained Eamonn was joking, before Dr Phillippa continued: "If you’ve got a little bit of antibiotics left, you need to finish the course, everybody out there.

"Please don't share your meds."

Eamonn confirmed that he was joking, and Ruth made sure viewers were completely clear not to follow her husband's health advice.
