Published Last updated

EAMONN Holmes has spoken about the horror fall he suffered at home and admitted: “It’s been a hellish few weeks.”

The GB News Breakfast presenter was recovering from a major back operation when he fell and tumbled down the stairs last month.

It left him with a fractured shoulder, meaning it could be the New Year before Eamonn is well enough to return to his role presenting Breakfast on GB News alongside Isabel Webster.

Speaking for the first time today about what happened, Eamonn told GB News: "Last month I suffered a fall at home while I was recovering from my back operation and fractured my shoulder.

"It was a massive setback and means I'm going to need to take some extra time off to get myself better. It's been a hellish few weeks. But day by day I'm improving and I am remaining positive and trying to look on the bright side.”

Explaining how he is looking forward to getting back to his TV work, he continued: “I can't wait to get back to work at GB News and do what I love most, presenting the news and discussing the issues of the day alongside Isabel with our wonderful viewers and listeners.

"I can't say a big enough thank you to everyone who has sent me lovely messages, they've really cheered me up and kept me going.

"One thing I've noticed is just how many other people out there are suffering from chronic pain, and I am determined to keep speaking up on their behalf.

“Also, I really must say a heartfelt thank you to the doctors and nursing staff who have been looking after me. They all are amazing. God bless.”

Isabel Webster has also sent her co-presenter and friend her best wishes. She said: “I know how much our audience is missing Eamonn, and I am too.

"It has been heartbreaking to see him in so much pain. Eamonn has had such a run of bad luck, and to suffer in the way he has been.

“But I also know how hard he is working to get back to his best. I can’t wait to see him return, fighting fit, and back where he belongs - sitting alongside me on GB News.”
