During the show, Eamonn revealed his son Declan was set to welcome a baby with his wife Jenny.
At the time, he shared: “It’s been a tough year for so many people, there’s not much good news around. I’ve been having a very tough week.

Eamonn gives an update on his chronic pain
Furthermore, the star also spoke about his current battle with chronic pain.
Since turning to steroid injections, Eamonn admitted he’s feeling a lot better.
He shared: “It’s no respecter of age, of sex and my heart goes out to people who live with long term chronic pain.
“I eventually got the steroid injections in the three discs and that was a life-changer, just to be able to go to bed, go to sleep.
“The thing is you rely on tablets, and tablets make you sleep, then you are groggy the next day. Tablets just to take the pain away but that’s what people have to do.”
Meanwhile, it comes after Eamonn previously visited the hospital and a physio in a bid to tackle the pain.
