Eamonn Holmes worries fans after sharing a concerning tweet.

The TV star took to social media on Saturday night and said, “Some nights I miss important people in my life . Tonight is one of those nights. If I have a problem it's having too many people I Iike. It's hard to keep in touch."

“To be there , especially divided by The Irish Sea . Gosh I try hard. If u r my friend there's a reason.”

Eamonn is originally from Belfast and makes no secret of his desire to return to his homeland, even spending Christmas back in Northern Ireland last year while Ruth remained in England with her mum.

The 62-year-old recently confessed that heading back there one day is definitely on the cards. 

“Oh aye, that would be very much the way I’d see the future, yes. It’s funny, places and peoples change but that would be very much my ambition, to be home full time.

“I miss Belfast a lot. When I’m busy it’s harder to miss it because I’m engrossed in what I’m doing, but when I stop it hits me. When I’m home, I’m always with my friends and brothers, and my mum who’s 92.

But it’s a definite point of contention for Ruth who gets “irritated” by Eamonn not calling their Surrey home 'home'.

When asked where home is, Eamonn said, "Well, it’s not Surrey. When people ask me what I’m doing at the weekend, I tell them I’m going home, then my wife gets very irritated by this. She says, ‘This is your home.’”

Sadly both Ruth and Eamonn have parents that need them, but miles away from each other. Which is why last year Ruth and Eamonn ended up spending Christmas apart.

“She’s got to be here, and we’ve got family commitments and work commitments, we’ve got a stretch of water that keeps us apart,” he admitted.

After Eamonn announced he’d be leaving This Morning back in December to embark on a new role at GB News, there has been concerns that he and wife Ruth Langsford are at a “crossroads”.

Having worked alongside one another for over a decade, their now very separate jobs will no doubt be an adjustment for the pair.

A source told Woman, “Eamonn and Ruth are so used to working together that they must feel at a crossroads. Many primetime channels are currently securing new talent over experience, so whether they will work together again is anyone’s guess.”

Despite having her own success on QVC and Loose Women, Ruth admitted she’ll miss being beside Eamonn every day.

“I’ll miss working alongside him, but he’s back doing what he loves most… news.”

Thankfully they’re a strong couple and their mutual respect for one another is what they call the secret to their 25-year relationship.

“25 years is a long time to be together and I think working together as well, not many people work with their partner as well, so I think a lot of respect comes into it.”
