Eamonn Holmes, 61, has finally been able to share some good news after a worrying week that saw him hospitalised with chronic pain that had been giving him sleepless nights.
The former This Morning host, who is married to Ruth Langsford, shared a tweet with his one million followers to confirm he has now started physiotherapy, and is feeling the benefits.
He wrote: “First physio session of the day finished . Best one yet . Feel like progress happening . Energy really flowing . Let’s hope it stays that way”.
One follower replied: “I’m so pleased to hear that the Physio sessions are working for you!”

Another flirty fan wrote: “Hope you start feeling better soon as it doesn’t dim your shine! Really looking forward to seeing you and Ruth next week x I’d offer to come and rub your aches but I know Ruth is #averyjealouswoman!”
“Everything crossed for you Eamonn nothing worse than being in constant pain x,” added a third, while a fourth gushed: “Wishing you well, on a selfish note I hope you and @RuthieeL are on @thismorning next week as it is the only time I watch it when you are on, otherwise it is a no no”.
Ruth and Eamonn had been set to host This Morning on Monday as Phil Schofield and Holly Willoughby take their half-term break – and Eamonn has confirmed he won’t let his hospital dash scupper those plans.
He tweeted: “Will have clearer picture of what’s causing my pain tomorrow but just to say folks like so many of you I’ve lived with variations of Chronic pain for years.
“Don’t allow it to stop me working & next week I’d like to be a voice for many of u & discuss the subject on @thismorning.”
Eamonn went on to add: “In the meantime I am proud that my experience has given you a voice and I’m humbled by your various and different experiences & your kindness to me.
“If between us we can get more solutions more understanding and more resources directed towards CP then that would be a result.”
The previous night, Eamonn had worried fans by revealing he’d been taken to hospital.
In a post on Twitter, he wrote: “At Hospital… pain like I’ve never experienced in my life. Need to find out what’s causing this. Wish me we well.”
The hospital visit came days after Eamonn admitted he’d been suffering sleepless nights as a result of the condition.
He headed to a physiotherapy session in a bid to ease the pain and shared a snap of himself on the table.
However, the telly star tried to remain upbeat and declared that he’s “determined to beat this”.
“Just can’t get it to go away. Sadly so many of you know the feeling. Thanks for sharing your stories,” he wrote.
“I’m determined to beat this… however much it hurts.”
