The last time the star was on TV, it was a more sombre occasion as the 61-year-old opened up about his dad Leonard's tragic death in an emotional interview on RTE One's The Meaning of Life.

The star was in a different environment than his fans are used to!

Reflecting on his upbringing, the This Morning star revealed that he once feared for his own life after he found himself struggling to breathe a few weeks after his father died of a heart attack aged 64.

"One time I was in Israel and I began to feel ill," he explained. "My heart started beating and I was losing my breath. I was becoming really dizzy and I fell down on my knees.

"I thought I was going to die the way my dad died. My dad had just died six weeks earlier. I passed out and the next thing I knew I was in the back of an ambulance…"

Sharing a clip to social media, Eamonn wrote: "He's been gone 31 years now but I still miss him every day."
