Ruth Langsford has spoken out about the VERY explicit photo she accidentally shared this time last year...

As we're sure you'll remember, last year's Mother's Day was ever so slightly overshadowed by the fact that Loose Women's Ruth Langsford shared an explicit photo on her Twitter profile.

Ruth innocently thought she was simply sharing a screenshot of a lovely picture featuring herself with her mum Joan and sister Julia as a tribute message to commemorate the day, but she ended up sharing a LOT more than she realised.

Cara Kilby only had a brief stint on TOWIE, but she was a firm favourite with viewers.Her boyfriend, Daniel, was sentenced to two years in prison after being accussed of leading a gang that sold drugs across London. He is due for release in the next few weeks.

What Ruth hadn't known was that incoming photo messages from WhatsApp are automatically downloaded to your camera roll - and when a friend sent over two very cheeky snaps, Ruth hadn't noticed them at the bottom of the screenshot before she posted it.

She unwittingly wrote: "My wonderful Mum and big sis. Thinking of those who no longer have their Mum’s... you’ll always have memories."

But fans were quick to spot the two naughty memes at the bottom of her screenshot - one of which was of a penis in a shoe, while the other was of a woman recreating a children's cartoon character using a man's penis...!

While Ruth addressed the hilarious mistake at the time, she has now spoken out about it one year on during today's Loose Women.

She could barely get the story out without laughing, revealing that she had no idea what she'd done until she came into work on the Monday and that her "blood ran cold" when she was told.

She said: "I felt sick - but they weren't Eamonn, if that's what you're thinking!"

But Ruth has learned from her mistakes, admitting that she now deletes everything as soon as she receives it and checks everything meticulously before posting.
