Eamonn still relies on the use of a crutch following his week-long hospitalisation in June for a back injury. The walking-aid was carefully propped on the star’s right arm in his most recent selfie.

"All set to walk the dog," wrote Eamonn. "I just need to find where the dog disappeared to."

The TV host is still recovering from a back injury

The star was forced to take several days off work following his back injury earlier this year, and has been spotted out and about using the help of a walking stick.

"I ended up in hospital after waking up in the middle of the night suffering excruciating pain. I immediately knew something wasn't right," Eamonn wrote at the time. He went on to explain that the pain was caused by two prolapsed discs in his back.
