The 61-year-old captioned the snap: "That's my barefoot garden back/leg strengthening exercise routine done. This is a good stretch position for me to finish with. Nice Day… Hope it is with you too."

Eamonn's photo sparked debate as one of his followers shared that they initially thought the legs belonged to the star's wife and co-star, Ruth Langsford.

A fourth complimented the star, writing: "Nicely tanned legs," while another sweetly wished the star well, commenting: "Hope you are feeling a difference in your pain relief Eamonn," adding a heart emoji.

The broadcaster has kept fans updated in his battle with chronic pain, although it sounds like hope is on the horizon.

After struggling for several weeks, the star went to hospital for a diagnosis and discovered it was caused by a dislocated pelvis and three slipped discs.

Last month, Eamonn posted a series of pictures from his trip to Glasgow – where he was seen touring the city with crutches. "Determined to still get around," he wrote in the caption. "Been to Bonnie Scotland over the Bank Holiday. Crutches and all..."

Upon seeing his post, wife Ruth Langsford encouraged him by writing: "We need to get you back on the golf course!"
