Eamonn Holmes is ‘determined to get around’ as his chronic pain battle continues.
The This Morning presenter, 61, headed to Scotland to make the most of the Bank Holiday weekend, and shared snaps from the getaway – showing him taking in the sights while on crutches.
In a string of photos shared on Instagram, he was seen grinning widely on a golf course in the sunshine, before visiting poet Robert Burns’ cottage, pointing to a sign with his crutch in hand.
‘Determined to still get around. Been to Bonnie Scotland over the Bank Holiday. Crutches and all…,’ he captioned the upload.
Fans were delighted to see the TV veteran out and about, after his recent health issues.
Flooding the post with praise, a follower replied: ‘Fantastic Eamonn! Really hope you’re feeling better…and enjoyed the good weather!’
‘That’s great news you look just great well done for keep going,’ another said.
‘Looking great mr Holmes glad you’re feeling better,’ one commented.
As an Instagram user added: ‘Good for you Eamonn. So lovely to see you enjoying yourself X.’
Eamonn previously sparked concern when he posted a photo from hospital, telling fans that he was seeking treatment for chronic pain.
He later confirmed that he suffered ‘three slipped discs’, and had been given steroid injections to help deal with the condition.
Lifting the lid on his recovery, he tweeted: ‘Another session of Physio rehab – feels like I’m making progress – slowly but surely.
‘Chronic pain now gone because of steroid injections – thank God.
‘Got to strengthen my back now. Small steps, literally. But feeling positive.’
Eamonn described the situation as ‘awful’, revealing he was having sleepless nights over the pain.
Appearing on Loose Women alongside wife Ruth Langsford in April, he added: ‘Chronic pain, no matter what causes it – it doesn’t discriminate between whether you’re young or old, man or woman or whatever.
‘I couldn’t sleep at night, I just couldn’t sleep. Lying there at night, trying to get to sleep while Ruth was sound asleep beside me. Honestly it was awful.
‘I’m six weeks down the road with that and I’ve got the injections which have taken away the acute pain.
‘I can sleep and that’s a blessing, absolutely great. But the physicality of not being able to walk straight…
‘I’m going to embark on a whole rehabilitation programme, I’ll get fit, I’ll get strong. It will take a while.’
