He said: "I’ve joined Cameo! What is Cameo I hear you ask? I can send personalised messages to your family and friends whatever the occasion.

"Initially, a portion of the proceeds will go to the @dogstrust , a charity very close to my heart and where I adopted our lovely Maggie from!"

He added: "As the months go by, I’ll also look at donating money to other lesser-known charities and causes."

It wasn't long before his followers commended him on his worthy efforts, with one writing: "This is fantastic Eamonn, such a kind soul you are." A second said: "This is a good message."

A third added: "Wonderful, Eamonn. How lovely of you!" A fourth said: "That's brilliant, Eamonn! Love your cute dog."

It isn't just animals that Eamonn is looking out for either. Last week, he announced a surprising new venture in which he'd serve as an "agony uncle" for those who aspire toward a career in media.

Eamonn said: "Hiya. Today I went into London for a business meeting, there's a lot of business meetings in what I do and I put #LoveMyJob and that got a lot of you to respond and… a lot of you don't love your jobs as well.

"And I thought, look if you want to break into media and if you've got a question about media in any terms of tuition or my advice on certain things, get in touch with me, leave a question and in future weeks I'll do a series of replies to those questions."

He added: "You don't even have to be in media, just think of it as a sort of Agony Uncle!"
