The This Morning presenter took to his Instagram page to reveals to fans that he is currently suffering with a problem with his eye.

Sharing a photo of his right eye with his almost 600,000 followers, showing them his pretty sore looking eye that had evidently become completely red and inflamed.

Appealing for advice from his loyal fans, Eamonn wrote, ‘This appeared today .....should I be worried?’.

The post got a massive response from fans, friends and acquaintances, with many of them empathising with the TV host, while some wished him well and many even gave him helpful advice to soothe and improve the condition of his eye.

Get some chloramphenicol drops ASAP,’ wrote TV personality Lizzie Cundy, who has previously appeared on This Morning.

‘Go to your nearest eye hospital and get this checked out,’ advised one fan, ‘#bettertobesafethansorry’.

I had one before,’ wrote one fan who advised Eamonn of their own previous experience and gave advice to help him along. ‘Just a burst blood vessel it went after a few days but sometimes can be a sign of high Blood Pressure so worth getting it checked xx’.

Others agreed, writing, ‘No just blood vessel that burst you will be fine 🙏’ and ‘It's a burst blood vessel. It will go away on its own x’.

While another agreed that the eye problem could be a sign of a different underlying condition, adding, ‘You need to get your blood pressure checked Eamon’.

And some tried to lighten the TV presenter’s spirits with some light-hearted banter, as one commented, ‘Should of made it a pun...‘should eye be worried?’.

Another joked that Eamonn’s painful looking eye could be courtesy of his wife and This Morning co-host Ruth Langsford, quipping, ‘What has Ruth done? 🤦♀️😂😂’.

Fingers crossed that Eamonn manages to get it all sorted and get better as soon as possible!

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
