Ruth Langsford issues worrying update on Eamonn Holmes after hospital dash

Loose Women star Ruth Langsford has provided an update on how her husband Eamonn Holme s is currently doing after his unexpected hospital dash last week.

Eamonn, 62, has suffered with ongoing chronic back pain and told fans last year that it was so unbearable that he was unable to sleep through the night.

The former This Morning presenter also had viewers concerned when he was seen hobbling on the ITV set with a walking stick in one hand.

But on Tuesday's episode of Loose Women (June 7) Ruth confirmed that he is now out of hospital and is currently resting at home.

When asked of his progress by co-star Janet Street-Porter, Ruth, 62, replied: "He's out now, he's resting at home. You know he's had this bad back problem and it played up again and he ended up in hospital for a few days.

"So, yes, it's been a bit worrying. That's why I wasn't here last week. And he's out now and resting at home," adding: "Yeah, he's alright now, thank you."

Last week, Eamonn was missing from his regular GB news spot which led fans to question where he was.

Jumping on Instagram to explain his situation, Eamonn posted a statement which read: "Hi everyone, Many of you have been asking why I haven’t been presenting GB News for the past week.

"Unfortunately, due to a reoccurrence of a long-term back condition, I’ve had to undergo some unexpected hospital treatment and am now following Doctor’s orders by taking a short time off."

He thanked viewers for their concern and assured them he would be back on their screens relatively soon.

The star added: "However, I’m looking forward to being back alongside Isabel, my Breakfast co-presenter and friend, next week.

"Even though I only joined GB News six months ago the whole team and our amazing audience have shown me immense support which has been greatly appreciated.

"I now just need some time with my family to heal and recuperate. See you soon, Eamon."

After he posted the message, the GB News account wrote on Twitter: "We hope you feel better soon @EamonnHolmes! Sending love and best wishes from all of us here at GB News."

Meanwhile, co-star Anna Riley also wished him well and said: "Hope you’re feeling better soon, Eamonn, and I look forward to having you back on breakfast!"
