According to Eamonn, the early starts could become “difficult”.
Writing in his column in the Express, he said: “The early starts do take their toll, but knowing that you’re meeting up with one of your best friends, the work becomes much more fun and time tends to fly.
“The evenings can be a bit more difficult. My big dread about what’s ahead is insomnia and what feels like a ‘sleep hangover’ the next day.”
The early starts do take their toll
In her column for Best Magazine, the Loose Women star shared: “And before any of you ask why I’m not working with Eamonn on breakfast television, you obviously don’t know me.
“Respect to Eamonn and Isabel [Webster], facing up to 3am alarm calls, but I honestly know it would kill me.”
Eamonn made his debut appearance on GB News earlier this month.
After quitting This Morning, the broadcaster now hosts the channel’s new Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel.
Opening his first show, Eamonn said: “I’m having some lovely messages from people all around the country who are looking forward to whatever we’re going to do differently.
“Hopefully we are going to do lots of things differently. We’re going to do news, but we’re going to do news with views.”
Following his debut, Eamonn took to social media to address a viewer who claimed the show was “too right wing”.
Hitting back at the criticism, he said: “Obviously u aren’t watching Breakfast Pat.”
Eamonn’s health worries
Meanwhile, Eamonn has always been open about his health and often speaks about his chronic pain battle.
Despite undergoing therapy, the star recently admitted his chronic back pain has caused a strain on his relationship with Ruth.
He told The Sun: “For months now I haven’t been able to walk, sometimes at all, and it has really taken its toll on everyone around me too.
“I can’t bend down to pick things up so Ruth ends up having to wait on me.
“It has caused some strain and Ruth is fed up of hearing about it and of me saying I can’t walk the dog or tidy up, but I can’t help it. It’s agony.”
