Ruth Langsford admits feeling ‘very helpless’ as husband Eamonn Holmes suffers with pain

Ruth Langsford has said it’s hard to watch the person you love struggling, as her husband Eamonn Holmes documents his battle with chronic pain. The 61-year-old This Morning presenter made her comments while admitting that she worries that he’ll take too many painkillers to deal with the agony.

“Understandably, Ruth doesn’t like painkillers for anything, a headache or anything…” Eamonn told ITV viewers earlier today.

“Not really, I mean I will take them for a headache, but I try not to,” Ruth explained.

“But also it’s very hard to watch the person you love in so much pain when you feel very helpless, you can’t really do anything,” she went on to add.

“But tablets help me. Why wouldn’t you let me take them?” Eamonn went on to ask, during an appearance on This Morning.

The presenter said it tends to be worse when he’s lying down.

Eamonn got up at 4.30am today to undergo an hour of physiotherapy before his stint on live television.

He gave fans an update on the microblogging site first thing in the morning.

“Hey, busy day so far ….. 1 hour physio at 4.30 am to get match fit for today’s #ThisMorning …. followed by the Cold shower routine!” he wrote in view of his one million followers.
