Ruth Langsford forced to hide in TV studio after protestors stormed building
Ruth Langsford was faced with a violent anti-vax mob which stormed a TV studio yesterday (August 9) in London.
The presenter, who is a regular host of This Morning, was reportedly forced to hide inside a room as a mob of protestors charged at the former BBC TV Centre in London.
The 61-year-old star was trapped in a room along with staff and guests as the mob closed in on the famous complex in the Shepherd's Green area of London as Loose Women was broadcasting live.
The protestors had moved in on the studio not long after the host was done filming This Morning, according to a source.
Her TV presenter husband with whom she co-presents the chat show, Eamonn Holmes, managed to escape the building with others in time.
However, a few members of the protest apparently got inside the building as police struggled with the crowds.
A source told The Sun: "Ruth Langford was still stuck inside, although Eamonn had managed to get out.
"It was terrifying. No-one knew if the protestors had weapons.

"The protestors arrived after This Morning had come off air.
"They seem to have an issue with how the anti-vaccination issue has been handled on the show."
The source went on to say that Ruth had to be brought out by security shortly after being trapped in the room.
They added that ITV are going to have to carry out an inquiry after security was breached.

The group of campaigners were believed to be protesting against vaccine passports and jabs for kids.
They accused the broadcaster of "not giving out the right information" on Covid jabs and passports.
Footage of the protestors was quickly shared on social media, with one Twitter user posting a video and writing: "Official Voice protesters try storming the BBC studios at White City but they come up against a heavy police presence."
Reacting to one video of the protestors, Piers Morgan was left fuming with the demonstrators.
He tweeted: "It’s ITV’s HQ now, you f**king imbeciles," to which Sean, famous for playing Callum in Corrie, fired back: "Sorry what was that Piers?!? Imbeciles?!? No worried mother’s and fathers actually!! We did both ITV amd the BBC," before labelling the ex GMB host an "old clown".
