After a viewer tweeted: "Never been a fan of @EamonnHolmes but sadly our TV and radio shows are loaded with presenters like him, who openly admit to having no talent or opinions and wonder why they're in their well-paid jobs. At least @piersmorgan has an opinion. Also growing weary of @Rylan's 'sickies,'" to which Rylan replied: "Sickies? I was ill?"

Seeing the TV personality’s response, Eamonn wrote: "Rylan, I was going to challenge this stupid ignoramus... decided not to but because he has annoyed you he has annoyed me more. I know how truly ill you have been... I just hope he never catches one of your ''sickies''. Stay well my friend." Rylan thanked Eamonn with a love heart emoji.
