Eamonn Holmes has suffered a horrific fall down the stairs of his Surrey home, which has left him with a fractured shoulder.
The 62 year old TV presenter was in the midst of recovering from spinal surgery when the incident happened and he had to undergo yet another surgery within the space of just weeks as a result.
According to Express.co.uk, the Irish star is now receiving rehabilitative treatment for his injuries and it appears he may not be back on the screen for a while as doctors have ordered him to rest for the next eight weeks.
Opening up on the tumble, Eamonn's representative told the publication that he's in an "awful lot of pain" and "gutted" by the fresh health blow.
They said: “As a consequence of being laid low by major surgery, Eamonn suffered a fall at home a couple of weeks ago and had to undergo another operation.
“He’s naturally gutted by the setback, but the good news is the surgery on his shoulder went well. He’s now receiving fantastic care and rest."
Explaining that it means Eamonn is likely to stay off screen for a longer period than he originally expected, they continued: "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.”
They added: “Eamonn would like to say thank you for the wonderful care he has received from the NHS. He’d also like to thank everyone who has sent him get-well messages.
"Eamonn’s focus now is solely on resting, and getting better – which he is determined to do.”
OK! has contacted a representative for Eamonn for further comment.
Just days ago, the fan-favourite TV host had updated fans on his health following his back surgery, which he had to help ease his excruciating chronic pain.
Fans flocked to social media to ask about his welfare after his absence on GB News as one person wrote: "How's your recovery going? Wishing you all the vest and hope to see you back on GB News very soon."
Eamonn, who recently missed the NTAs with his partner Ruth Langsford, wrote in response: "It might be a while I'm afraid."
Prior to this, he appeared on GB News briefly last week where he admitted he was having "setbacks in the healing process".
"Had a few setbacks in the healing process. Doing my best to get back on track. Thanks for your support," he told his telly co-stars.
As they await his return, his following have been flooding social media with messages, with Eamonn liking and replying to some of them.
"Hope you're feeling better Eamonn and that your back has improved. I know how hard it is being in pain every day," one penned.
Another chimed in: "So missing you Eamonn, hope you are feeling better," as a third added: "Missing you in the mornings."
As another fan asked: "Are you back tomorrow?" to which he replied: "Had a few setbacks. Doing my best. Thanks for your support."
