Meanwhile, Eamonn recently opened up about his weight and admitted he can’t look at photos of himself in his 30s and 40s.

The presenter, 61, said working on breakfast TV made him gain weight because he would eat six meals before lunch.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the presenter said: “I didn’t realise how much it changed my life, your habit and how you are. I was three stone heavier when I was on GMTV than I am now.
