Eamonn Holmes has left fans worried after sharing a sombre black and white photo of himself on Instagram. The GB News star, 63, captioned the thoughtful snap: "A lot to think about..... one of those days."

Another commented: "Your very handsome and distinguished in this photo Eamonn." A third agreed: "Fab photo of you." And a fourth added: "Why has Eamonn gone all sexy?".

Eamonn, who is married to Loose Women's Ruth Langsford, has been dealing with health issues for several years. In 2016, he underwent a double hip replacement operation to alleviate pain in his legs and hips that he had been secretly suffering from for many years.

The former This Morning presenter has been struggling with chronic pain for the past few years. After hospital visits in 2021, Eamonn found out that his pain was due to a dislocated pelvis and a trapped sciatic nerve.

The TV host underwent surgery in September 2022 to alleviate his pain, but unfortunately suffered a fall during his recovery. This led to a fractured shoulder and the need for additional surgery.

Now reliant on walking aids, he openly admits that times are tough, frequently sharing updates on social media and during his appearances on his GB News show.

Whilst Eamonn has been trying to recover, it has not gone unnoticed amongst fans that the couple have not been seen together for several months.

In a recent family picture shared by Eamonn, it sparked fears of Ruth’s whereabouts. The broadcaster proudly shared a picture of his son Declan, daughter-in-law Jenny and their two daughters Emilia and Isabella from the latter's christening earlier this week.

Many expressed concern for the celebrity couple's marriage, as one follower commented: "You never see them together & it's worrying. I loved the relationship they had."

Ruth , 64, later seemed to quench rumours and comments from continuing as she confirmed that she was with her elderly mother that day, as she shared videos of them spending quality time together on her own Instagram Stories.
