Get ready for some seriously retro vibes with this throwback photograph of Eamonn Holmes, which was taken 40 years ago! The popular 49-year-old broadcaster shared the photo on Instagram over the weekend, captioning it: "Bought a car today....which brought me back to my first one. 1979, I was 19. A Fiat 124 with Rally headlights. 550 quid. I was robbed." The picture showed a 19-year-old Eamonn wearing a waistcoat and flared suit trousers, leaning against his first little car. Eamonn also wore a crop of long, black, curly hair! The year must have been 1979, when Eamonn first started his career in journalism.
