Continuing he wrote: “Lack of mobility & depending on others stops me doing really simple things. For peace of mind I feel another round of foot exercises coming on.”

He has yet to return to his post on GB News due to his current difficult recovery.

Fans were quick to reach out with their support. As one wrote: “I feel your pain I had 6 months of physio 2 hours a night 5 a week. I [hated] relying on folk ….but one thing was NO one will ever understand how [awful] physio is and how exhausting.”

With Eamonn replying: “Relying [on people] is soul destroying”


Prior to the operation, Eamonn revealed the exactly process to aid his condition.

Explaining the surgery, he told the Express: “This week a surgeon will cut into my back to hopefully relieve pressure on my sciatic nerves. It’s an operation that carries a 20 per cent risk of going wrong, but such is the pain and restrictions that I have been suffering for the past 18 months, I’ve decided it is a risk I am willing to take.”
