Former This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes has revealed that his agonizing back problems weighed on his marriage to Ruth Langsford.
Eamonn suffers from a pinched sciatic nerve and is given a mix of strong pain relievers and intense physical therapy to fight it.
But the 62-year-old was left “wiggling” with a walking stick and Mrs. Ruth was waiting for him.
Despite intense physical therapy and strong pain relievers, the 62-year-old screen darling says his daily challenges are having an impact on his wife Ruth Langsfordwho has to wait for him.
“I haven’t been able to walk at all for months, and it really strained everyone around me,” he told The Sun.
“I can’t bend down to pick things up, so Ruth has to wait for me, and I know my sons in particular are embarrassed about the way I move.
“Even my own family is bored of my moans. It’s created some stress and Ruth is tired of hearing about it and saying that I can’t walk the dog or clean up, but I can’t help myself. It’s torture.”
It’s sad news for one of television’s favorite TV couples – hopefully Eamonn will get better in 2022 and Ruth will get a break from reaching for him!
Last week, Eamonn shared a cute family Instagram snap with son Declan and granddaughter Emilia.
He posted the photo on Instagram with the caption: “Pappa and Dec agree that Emilia is the best we have found under the tree.”

Eamonn Holmes’ family time
The shot was shared on Boxing Day and shows Eamonn and Declan beaming with joy as they hold Emilia between them in her car seat.
While his followers flocked to compliment him on his family, it did not go unnoticed that Declan is very much Eamonn’s “mini-me”.
“She is beautiful and your son looks like you Eamonn,” enthused one fan.
Eamonn replied and said: “Mini me…. unless he’s bigger ”accompanied by several laughing emojis.
“Your son is your doppelganger, wish you a good boxing day, Eamonn,” agreed another.
A third said: “Emilia is beautiful and Dec looks just like you!”
It was Emilia’s first Christmas and Eamonn’s first Christmas as a grandpa.
The toddler was born in July and Eamonn was just as enthusiastic about the little girl at the time and proudly posted a photo of Declan holding her.
In the picture, Papa Declan is gently rocking the newborn Emilia in a beautiful black and white picture.
Eamonn has given the picture a title: “My firstborn son Declan with his firstborn and my first grandchild Emilia.
“Welcome to the world of Emilia.”
He also revealed the nickname Emilia will call him in the future.
“Just call me papa,” he said.

2022 seems very busy for Eamonn as he begins his new role on GB News.
Earlier this month, Eamonn posted a statement on Twitter about his new job after quitting as the host of This Morning.
Eamonn Holmes’ new job
He said, “I’ve spent my career broadcasting premieres and startups and GB News is one of the most exciting things ever.
“It’s exactly the kind of shake up the industry needs.”
He added, “Right from the start I have admired GB News for its clever mix of punchy debates that are delivered with warmth and even some fun.
“For me, the greatest honor in journalism is to give voice and respect to the unheard-of, and that is what GB News is all about.”
Eamonn and his wife, Ruth Langsford, were the Friday presenters of This Morning for over 14 years. Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond took over the position earlier this year.
Eammon announced that Declan’s wife, Jenny, was expected on This Morning back in April.
