Rylan named them two of his closest friends in the industry and wrote: “I remember the way their faces looked when they saw me and saw how seriously ill I was and then Eamonn got very upset. I had never seen Eamonn so upset and it was like a wake up call.

The star has previously admitted that Ruth and Eamonn are “scared” for him and “shocked” by his fragile condition.
