Eamonn Holmes has insisted he will return to work next week and host This Morning despite his ongoing battle with chronic pain.
The 61 year old was admitted to hospital on 1 April after getting "pain like I've never experienced in my life" and doctors have been trying to figure out the root cause of the problem.
Clearly unable to sleep, the star took to his Twitter account to update his one million followers about his condition and assure them he would be returning to ITV studios next week to continue work as normal.
"Will have clearer picture of what's causing my pain tomorrow but just to say folks like so many of you I've lived with variations of Chronic pain for years," he wrote at 1:37am.

Many of his fans could empathise with what he's been going through as one person spoke about how playing hockey has "taken a toll" on their knees and they have damaged their coccyx, too.
