Eamonn Holmes admits being ‘helpless’ in update after ‘losing full mobility’
GB News: Eamonn Holmes discusses his health
Eamonn Holmes has admitted feeling “helpless” in his latest health update following spinal injury and a fall last year.
The GB News presenter opened up about his struggles in a new interview with best magazine, after losing “full mobility”.
“Well, I can walk if that’s what you mean (50 steps, to be exact) but I now accept life is easier with help from others. Getting around with crutches is exhausting. I wish I could walk further but, for now, I can’t,” he announced.
“Humble, helpless but grateful.
“The good news is the op last year cured me of my back pain… I lost full mobility. I’m doing everything I can to get better. But it’s slow.”

Eamonn has also admitted that people have made fun of him for using a mobility scooter.
He added: “Well, some people were mocking me on social media last night. ‘Oh, look at Eamonn, he’s in a mobility scooter!’
“I replied, saying: ‘I would prefer if I wasn’t in it but how else would I have got around?’
“The alternative is I don’t go anywhere, and I sit in my armchair, work in the office.”
He said simple tasks like going to the cinema were a “terrible effort”.
