Eamonn Holmes treated his first-born to a day at the races – and it looks like they had a wonderful time! The This Morning host and his son Declan, 28, got dressed up to go to Cheltenham Festival, and both looked smart in suit jackets, crisp white shirts and colourful ties. Standing outside the grounds, the lookalike pair posed for a photo, which Eamonn later shared with his fans on Instagram. "Had a lovely day at #cheltenham festival with @declan08. Oddly enough there were a few other Irish there as well," he captioned the image.

Declan and Eamonn have a close relationship. Late last year, Declan announced his engagement to fiancée Jenny Gouk, and later took his dad out to look at potential wedding venues. Eamonn shares Declan with his ex-wife Gabriella, along with daughter Rebecca, 26, and 24-year-old Niall. The TV presenter is also a dad to son Jack, 16, with current wife and This Morning co-host Ruth Langsford.

It's been an exciting week for Eamonn, who picked up the award for Best News Presenter at Tuesday's TRIC Awards in London. He later shared a post on Instagram discussing his win. "An OBE and a TRIC award and It's only March ! Good start to the year. Thank you members of #tric," he wrote besides a photo of him holding up his trophy.
