The This Morning presenter was meant to celebrate her 53rd birthday with husband Eamonn Holmes and son Jack over the weekend.

But she ended up in bed with the flu!

And as if that’s not bad enough, she also missed out on a date with hubby Eamonn to a Van Morrison concert.

Ruth tweeted, ‘Thanks for all your birthday wishes. Have been in bed with the flu since Fri afternoon – missed Van Morrisson Booo! Of all the weekends to be sick Grrr! Up, showered & hair dried but had to come back to bed for a lie down after all that effort!’

We hope she’s feeling better.
