Ruth Langsford lifted the lid on the world’s richest in hit TV show How The Other Half Lives – while getting minted herself.
She has raked in £3m in the last two years as one of the hardest working celebs on the box.
With her This Morning host hubby Eamonn Holmes, 62, she has toured the world rubbing shoulders with the world’s super-rich.
The pair have interviewed West Ham United chief David Gold, an Indian hotel billionaire with a priceless Raphael painting in his hall in New York and loaded Russians for their show.
But we can reveal Ruth’s comfortably in the millionaire bracket on her own.
Her "theatrical" business Hey Ho Ltd boasts has resources of £2.3m – including £1.1m in cash.
Annual accounts filed last month show it shelled otu £623,111 in Corporation Tax over the last two years.
That means its income was around £3m.
The balance sheet shows Ruth ,61 has taken £1.5m in loans from the company.
She paid herself a nominal salary of just £8,788 in 2021.
Ruth also presents Lose A Stone In 4 Weeks For Summer and pens newspaper and magazine columns as well as having regular spots on Loose Women and shopping channel QVC – along with popular Tik Tok and Instagram pages.
It comes after This Morning viewers spotted a tense moment between Ruth and Phillip Schofield.
Earlier this week, the ITV daytime show crossed over for their usual preview to Loose Women and Ruth briefed them on the upcoming topics.
At the end of the segment, viewers at home noticed that Phillip seemed to forget his manners.
The 59-year-old presenter didn’t say thank you to Ruth after she finished addressing the audience and fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
One user commented on the interaction: “Not even a ‘Thank you, Ruth,' from our Phil. Fancy working in that atmosphere."

Another speculated: “We all know Phil and Ruth hate each other. No need for fake pleasantries."
Phil and Ruth’s husband Eamonn have what seems to be an ongoing feud, which could have been the reason why their exchange felt particularly tense.
Eamonn has slated Phillip’s behaviour and called him “passive aggressive,” while also taking a stand against ITV for removing him and Ruth from This Morning, which the pair had presented together for 15 years.
