Eamonn’s representative told The Express : ‘He’s naturally gutted by the setback, but the excellent news is the surgery on his shoulder went well. He’s now receiving improbable care and resting.

‘Sadly it means Eamonn is more likely to need an extended period off TV than he first thought in an effort to get himself higher 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.’ 

He and wife Ruth Lansford, who hosted Friday’s edition of the show since 2006, were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

Eamonn and his wife Ruth were no where to be seen on the NTAs last month – due to his recent vital back surgery and her QVC schedule clash.

The married presenting duo, who used to host NTA winning show This Morning on an everyday schedule, are normally firm attendees of the largest night in TV.

But his recent health woes and her work with teleshopping channel QVC meant that the pair weren’t sat with their industry colleagues as they typically do on a star-studded night in London.

The Northern Irish presenter recently told his latest channel GB News that he was operated on around two weeks ago, talking on 5 October: ‘It’s early days, it’ll probably be about three weeks before they know if it has been a hit or not.’

Eamonn – who suffers from shingles – was forced to take a step away from his show to organize for the vital back surgery on 28 September.

The tv personality said that he was ‘praying’ ahead of the operation which aimed to alleviate pressure on his static nerves.

The broadcaster has suffered from long-term difficulties, previously telling of his battle with chronic back pain after a dislocated pelvis led to a few slipped discs.

He told The Express: ‘It’s an operation that carries a 20 per cent risk of going fallacious, but such is the pain and restrictions that I even have been suffering for the past 18 months, I’ve decided it’s a risk I’m willing to take.

‘In truth, it is a risk I need to take because, at this moment in time, nothing could seem worse than the constant pain that runs through my lower back and legs.’

Eamonn said that he was praying ‘that God will guide [his] surgeon’s hand this week’ to assist him get back to the ‘man he was.’ 

He went on to disclose to the publication that the agony could be so intense that sleep is usually his own ‘escape’, adding that somebody could be surrounded by family and friends but that severe pain can feel like your companion.

Before saying that he hoped his recovery offered hopes to those that can not cope with their depression and anger with chronic pain.
