Is it teething time for your little one?

It's not everyday that we get to bring our husband to work with us.

 

However, TV presenter Ruth Langsford did just that, to mark a very special occasion.

 

Our favourite breakfast show, This Morning will turn the big 30 on October 3.

 

To celebrate their birthday, presenters Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes rolled out all the stops.

 

 

Eamonn joined the Loose Women panel to reflect on the show's success over the last three decades.

 

During the discussion, Ruth received a huge round of applause as her hubby announced that she was longest serving presenter on the morning show.

 

Ruth revealed that she had missed out on presenting This Morning to Fern Britton, who hosted the show for 10 years from 1999 to 2009.

 

However, Ruth was asked in 1999 to join the crew, and now the husband and wife team take over the show on a Friday and school holidays.

 

 

The duo revealed on the This Morning couch why they think the show has been so successful.

 

And the secret seems to be creating content that the general public can relate to. 

 

Both highlighted what a significant achievement it was for the morning segment to stand the test of time. 

 

On their roles in the breakfast show, Eammon said: "people like us just come and go, we are just stewards of it for a while."

 

"But as long as the content stays similar to people's lives, this programme could be around for another... 30 days at least," he joked. 

 

 

The couple have been married since June 2010, and share one son together, Jack.

 

This Morning launched on October 3 1988, making it the longest running daytime show on British television.
