Eamonn Holmes makes This Morning return
Eamonn Holmes has made his return to ITV's 'This Morning' following his double hip operation.
The TV presenter joined wife Ruth Langsford on the show on Friday (15.04.16) where he proudly stood up without his crutches and declared: "Look, I can fully do all I'm supposed to do! There's no point overstraining, but I can do all the basic things required."
When Ruth commented that he looked taller after his operation, Eamonn agreed, saying: "I've an inch added I think!"
He added to viewers: "If you are facing a hip operation - or two as in my case - there's light at the end of the tunnel, it can be done. Do your exercises, take your painkillers, and you will get through it."
And while Eamonn was delighted to be back at work, his wife was ecstatic, saying: "I've had a few TV husbands sitting here with me - but now I've got the best back!"
Ruth also admitted that her joke of buying a bell for her husband when he was recovering backfired after he overused it.
She said: "Don't buy a bell for a joke, because they will use it! It was a little joke but one that I fell foul of!"
Eamonn previously revealed that he went "through hell" while recovering from the operation.
He said: "I am going through hell! No, the truth is, I think anyone would rather not be going through what I am but to anyone who is facing this operation, I want to say that the people here really do know what they are doing and the technology is so advanced.
"Yes, it is going to hurt a bit but this pain doesn't compare to what I was going through before."
'This Morning' continues weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
