Eamonn Holmes has had to take some time away from TV with his GB News co-host Isabel Webster sharing that he won’t be back on screen until the new year.
Now he has finally opened up about his “massive setback” which has seen him remove himself from the public eye.
Just weeks after undergoing spinal surgery, Eamonn suffered a fall down the stairs in his Surrey mansion and he admitted it was a “massive setback”.
Thankfully, he added that he is improving “day by day” and can’t wait to return to his job.
Speak to GB News, he explained: “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.”
He went on to say that he was really thankful for his fans and their lovely messages as well as the healthcare workers who are taking care of him as he recovers.
The presenter reportedly had to undergo another surgery for his fractured shoulder and is recovering at the moment. The injury means he will be off our screens for longer than expected…
His rep told The Express: “He’s naturally gutted by the setback, but the good news is the surgery on his shoulder went well. He’s now receiving fantastic care and resting.
“Sadly it means Eamonn is likely to need a longer period off TV than he first thought in order to get himself better and heal.
“But despite being in an awful lot of pain, he’s remaining positive and is looking forward to doing what he loves most and being back on TV and presenting on GB News just as soon as he can.”
