EAMONN Holmes has said he won’t know what’s wrong with him until next week after being taken to hospital with chronic pain.
The TV legend, 61, who recommended prayer to his followers today, said his agony could continue for days more because the doctors who can help him are off for Easter.
The much-loved star was taken to hospital on Thursday with “pain like I’ve never experienced in my life”.
But speaking to followers in the early hours of today he said he was no better – with sleep his “only escape”.
Eamonn tweeted: “My pain hasn’t gone away but understandably and unluckily for me the professionals who analyse and diagnose are on an Easter break.
“So to everyone, Twitter community, Family and friends who are asking “What’s Wrong? ” unfortunately I won’t know until middle of next week.”
He said he didn’t begrudge anyone having time off saying: “Just my bad timing nothing else . No one’s fault.”
The star thanked other chronic pain sufferers for getting in touch saying: “Honestly folks , talking to you guys helps me forget the pain for 20 minutes.”
He added: “Another thing which is a bit Taboo in mainstream Media is Prayer.
“It goes by many more acceptable names these days like Mindfulness or Meditation .. but if u do it , however u do it & whoever u do it to .. May it help you . 🙏.”
