Since then, the presenter revealed he was feeling “a bit nauseous” while replying to a fan comment.

The extraction isn’t the only thing to leave a bitter taste in Eamonn’s mouth in recent days.

Gogglebox drama

Last week, the dad-of-three shared his disappointment over how he was edited on the celebrity version of Gogglebox.

Eamonn had hit out of an “idiotic and cruel” edit of him watching BBC’s Ambulance programme alongside wife Ruth.


After revealing his hurt on social media, Gogglebox issued an apology to Eamonn over what happened.

They informed followers on Twitter: “We have apologised to Eamonn over what happened in this week’s episode. We understand and respect Eamonn’s feelings on such a deeply personal story.

Eamonn responded to the show’s apology and said he was ready to “move on”.
