Eamonn Holmes says he's 'living with chronic pain' that's turned him into an insomniac

EAMONN Holmes says he's "living with chronic pain" that's turned him into an insomniac.

The 61-year-old messaged fans on twitter at 2.30am as he struggled to sleep.

"In that Twilight Zone between Night time and Morning," he wrote.

"Anyone else find these Hours the worst…. particularly if you suffer Chronic pain?"

He said "night is the worse" and there's "no escape".

Eamonn added: "I just want people who suffer to know there are others Tricia and maybe they can talk to each other and swop advice on here?"

He spent the early hours talking to fans who were also nocturnal – and comforted them about their own health struggles.

Eamonn underwent a double hip operation in 2016.

The stand-in This Morning presenter later admitted he feared he would die during the op after hearing his pal Sir Terry Wogan had passed away just hours before.

He told the Daily Star: "It was very foreboding. I was not very optimistic about the whole thing."

He added that his wife, Ruth Langsford, was worried she'd lose him, and asked Eamonn: "Do you have to have both of them done?"

But of course the surgery went ahead, and when Eamonn woke up, he recalls: "I saw this apparition and it was this beautiful woman, and it was my wife, and I thought, 'This is either heaven or hell'."
