Eamonn Holmes took to Twitter bright and early this morning to give fans a health update ahead of his appearance on This Morning today. The presenter, who has been suffering from chronic pain, got up at the crack of dawn in order to have an hour of physiotherapy to be “match fit” for the live show.
Although the programme does not broadcast until mid-morning, Eamonn was up at 4:30am to get ready.
His morning routine included a cold shower, which is thought to reduce physical pain and in some cases increase tolerance to it.
Later today Eamonn will present This Morning with his wife Ruth Langsford.
He shared an update with his one million followers on Twitter.

At the start of the month, Eamonn spoke out about the chronic pain he was suffering and reached out to others who were in a similar situation via Twitter to offer comfort and support.
He described the pain as something he’d never experienced in his life before.
Eamonn went on to say that it was at its worst when he was lying down.
The presenter headed to the hospital for an MRI scan to investigate the pain which has been keeping him up at night.
