The This Morning star took to social media to share his frustration at being unable to sleep, writing: "In that Twilight Zone between Night time and Morning. Anyone else find these Hours the worst.... particularly if you suffer Chronic pain?"

His followers were quick to offer support and advice, with one telling Eamonn: "Absolute nightmare @EamonnHolmes. I've problems with all my joints, really painful awaiting going back to hospital again next month. Always worse at night. Sorry to hear you're struggling too. I know it won't fix anything, but sending you loads of love and a great big hug x."

A third wrote: "Yes, pain & anxiety are at their worst for me plus dreadful nightmares. It's a lonely existence as there is no one to talk to, hubby snores his head off and is oblivious to how rubbish I feel. Worst still is I have to get up at this hour to go to work." In response, Eamonn said: "Bless you ..... and work on top of everything. Respect to you."

Eamonn lives with his wife, Ruth Langsford, in a beautiful home in Surrey. Just recently, he transformed their dining room in honour of Ruth's 61st birthday – which happened to fall on St Patrick's Day.
