Eamonn Holmes gets nostalgic as he shares throwback snap 'that makes him smile'

"Can't stop smiling thinking of pics then and now," he told Insta followers

TV presenter Eamonn Holmes has delighted his Instagram followers by sharing another photo from his childhood.

The This Morning host, 59, posted the black and white throwback snap featuring him and his brother Brian holding hands with their mum.

He recalled about the pic: "The photos were awful, the weather was awful but that was holidays in Ireland in 1965... and we were grateful for them.

"That's me with the hood up holding my Mum's hand.

It is like stepping back in time looking at old photos. Always happy memories.

"Bloody love this! Mini Eamonn," remarked another fan, to which Eamonn replied about the blurry photo: "Good job you can't see much of me!"
