Last week, Eamonn took to Instagram to reveal that he's been struggling with chronic pain.

He wrote: "At Hospital. Pain like I've never felt in my life . Hope they discover the cause . Wish me well folks 🙏".

Eamonn opened up about his condition on This Morning earlier this week, saying: "I've got an MRI scan but the trouble is everything closes down for Easter, I haven't got it analysed yet.

"But what I do know is that I can't sleep at night. The pain is absolutely worse at night. So many of you have this chronic pain from all sorts of different sources.

"So today I thought, let's talk about this; let's get you talking about this; let's talk to the doctors.

"Don't think you're alone on this one. I've had this a month, I hope I'm not going to have it for much longer.

"But people have lived with chronic pain for their whole lives."
