Records held by Surrey-based Holmes & Away Limited – co-founded by Eamonn and Ruth – show that he has paid a football field £265,000 in Corporation Taxes since 2020, which means he earns just over a million gross wages.
Loose Women presenter Ruth has nearly doubled her husband’s income directing £3m in the same 24-month period through her engagements with ITV’s Loose Women programme, as well as Langsford Late , Zoo Story and Lose A Stone In Four Weeks for Summer.
