Eamonn Holmes stuns fans with unrecognisable throwback photo

He looked a lot different as a teenager...

| Updated:

Nothing grabs people’s attention more than a throwback photo – just ask Eamonn Holmes.

The This Morning host, 59, shared a retro picture of himself on Instagram this weekend, and was soon being inundated with comments from surprised fans.

Well, it’s fair to say that the presenter looks somewhat different in the 40-year-old shot…

Eamonn is seen wearing a smart waistcoat and trousers as he stands smiling next to a gleaming – and rather sporty – motor.

The Northern Irish star captioned the photo: “Bought a car today… which brought me back to my first one. 1979, I was 19. A Fiat 124 with rally headlights. 550 quid. I was robbed.”

His fans weren’t paying attention to the car, though – they were more interested in how much their hero had changed in the past four decades.

One fan wrote: “OMG Eamonn, you look so young and skinny!!”

Another added: “OMG How handsome are you here!”

And a third chipped in: “Wow, that’s amazing, and look at you in the dapper waistcoat too!”

Eamonn revealed earlier this week that he was worried he might die before his time.

The presenter and his wife Ruth Langsford were speaking to breathing coach Rebecca Dennis on This Morning when he dropped his bombshell.

He said: “I worry that maybe I’m not breathing enough and could pass away by not doing it right.”

Ruth responded by saying: “That’s a bit dramatic.”

Eamonn added cheekily: “My trouble is, every time I look at my wife I lose my breath.”

He married Ruth, 58, in 2010, and the couple have a son, Jack, 16.
