Eamonn's love of Man U is no secret. During lockdown, he gave the first glimpse inside his 'man cave' which is filled with team memorabilia and even features a red floor in honour of the club's kit colour.


Eamonn designed the room himself

He later confirmed that he had designed the area himself. "I like interiors, I do, I absolutely do," he said on This Morning. "I don't know why everybody mocks and treats it as a subject of ridicule. Could I just say, I am the design genie in our home?"

Ruth replied: "He loves his home, he likes colour and he likes interiors."
