Eamonn Holmes

Eamonn Holmes delighted his 480,000 Instagram followers over the weekend, when he posted a photo of himself from around 40 years ago.

The popular presenter shared a snap of himself all the way back in 1979, when he was just 19.

In the photo, Eamonn was standing in front of a brand new car, his first one. He was reflecting on the milestone purchase, after revealing that he's bought another new car again this past weekend.

In the caption though, he joked that he was 'robbed', after paying £550 for his very first set of wheels back in the late 70s.

He wrote, 'Bought a car today....which brought me back to my first one. 1979 , I was 19 . A Fiat 124 with Rally headlights. 550 quid . I was robbed.'

With masses of thick dark hair, and a smaller frame than he sports now, the Eamonn of 40 years ago certainly looks pretty different to the man we know so well from our TV screens now.

The This Morning presenter's fans clearly loved seeing the throwback photo, with many writing to comment on how handsome he looked.

One said, 'What a handsome fellow 😍🤩', while another follower replied, 'Looking very sharp Eamonn'.

A third fan also commented, 'Yes eamonn check you out 🙌🙌', and another wrote on the picture, 'What a handsome man 👌'.

And a fifth said, 'OMG how handsome are you here!'

Over on his Twitter account, Eamonn continued to reveal that it had been a pretty productive weekend, as he enjoyed some rare time off from his day job.

As well as picking up his new wheels, he shared that he'd also done some work around the house, been to the gym, and gone for lunch in the sun.

He wrote, 'Well , not been a bad day off so far .... shifted some furniture room to room , had an hour weights session in the gym , went to the pub for lunch , walked the Dog and have just bought a car. Few things in life beat the thrill of buying a new car ...esp when The Sun shines 👍😁'.

Sounds like a great weekend to us Eamonn!
