This Morning's Eamonn Holmes 'hurting like hell' as he battles chronic pain with gruelling physio session
EAMONN Holmes looked very uncomfortable during a long physio session as he tried beat chronic pain.
The 61-year-old shared a photo of himself with his face through a massage table as he declared "I'm determined to beat this".
"Starting the day by tackling the pain from the night before ….. On the Physio table. Chronic pain . Just can't get it to go away," he wrote on the Twitter photo.
"Sadly so many of you know the feeling. Thanks for sharing your stories. I'm determined to beat this …however much it hurts."
The This Morning's trip to the physio came after he revealed to fans he was having trouble sleeping due to the pain.
"In that Twilight Zone between Night time and Morning," he wrote.
"Anyone else find these Hours the worst…. particularly if you suffer Chronic pain?"
He said "night is the worse" and there's "no escape".
Eamonn added: "I just want people who suffer to know there are others Tricia and maybe they can talk to each other and swop advice on here?"
He spent the early hours talking to fans who were also nocturnal – and comforted them about their own health struggles.
Eamonn underwent a double hip operation in 2016.
The stand-in This Morning presenter later admitted he feared he would die during the op after hearing his pal Sir Terry Wogan had passed away just hours before.
He told the Daily Star: "It was very foreboding. I was not very optimistic about the whole thing."
He added that his wife, Ruth Langsford, was worried she'd lose him, and asked Eamonn: "Do you have to have both of them done?"
But of course the surgery went ahead, and when Eamonn woke up, he recalls: "I saw this apparition and it was this beautiful woman, and it was my wife, and I thought, 'This is either heaven or hell'."
It's been a tough week for the TV couple as Ruth bravely revealed how she was sexually assaulted at just 11 years old on the London Tube.
Ruth, 61, said she was moved to speak up after seeing the outpouring of anger about violence against women following the tragic death of Sarah Everard.
Writing in Best magazine, the star – who is married to fellow telly favourite Eamonn Holmes – said: "Not every man is a danger, not every man is a sexual predator or a murderer but they are also not us.
"The awful death of Sarah Everard has got a lot of women re-evaluating what we feel, what we have, or do, put up with – just by being a woman.
"I have a husband who honours, respects, champions and defends women – however, he also has no experience of sexual harassment."
