However, one follower made a joke about his wife Ruth Langsford, writing: "Ask Ruth, Eamonn, her last vision is you at night, she mustn't sleep at all." To which, Eamonn replied: "Ha ha… always in the land of nod. She sleeps so well."

Another fan admitted that she was having "really strange dreams" ahead of her dad's funeral – and Eamonn revealed how much he sympathised. "Not surprising Michelle," he said. "30 years on I remember waking up on the same day with the same feelings. Sorry for your loss."
