Eamonn Holmes, 63, pushed in wheelchair by devoted son Declan amid health battle

Eamonn Holmes and his son Declan attended Manchester United's cup-winning triumph over rivals Newcastle United on Sunday.

The 63 year old Northern Irishman was pictured leaving the iconic Wembley Stadium once the Red Devils had lifted the Carabao Cup wheelchair-bound following a string of recent health setbacks.

The former This Morning host seemed pretty chirpy as fans greeted him, and no wonder after Brazilian superstar Casemiro and in-form striker Marcus Rashford's goals earned Eamonn's team a first piece of silverware since the 2016-2017 season.

Declan, who was seen wheeling his dad towards their waiting car, is Eamonn's 34 year old son from his first marriage to ex-wife Gabrielle Holmes.

Eamonn – who is married to Ruth Langsford – shared a snap of himself and Declan inside the stadium as he wrote: "At Wembley for #carabaocup final with Number 1 Son .

"Number 3 Son here too on his 21st birthday. Let's hope he gets the present we all want. #manchesterunited."

Just after Christmas, the GB News presenter delivered a "soul-destroying" health update in the wake of several surgeries.

"Worked hard at my physio this morning," he tweeted. "Very tiring but I've now sat on my backside for 5 hours and feel bad about doing nothing…

"[sad face emoji] …. lack of mobility & depending on others stops me doing really simple things. For peace of mind I feel another round of foot exercises coming on".

Eamonn's 2022 was no doubt one of his toughest yet, suffering a horrific fall down the stairs of his Surrey residence back in November – fracturing his shoulder as a result.

He was mid-recovery from a spinal operation at the time of the incident and was then forced to undergo yet another procedure in the space of just a few weeks.

Eamonn's representative told The Express: "As a consequence of being laid low by major surgery, Eamonn suffered a fall at home a couple of weeks ago and had to undergo another operation.

"He’s naturally gutted by the setback, but the good news is the surgery on his shoulder went well. He’s now receiving fantastic care and rest."

Explaining how this would affect the TV stalwart's career, they added: "But despite being in an awful lot of pain, he’s remaining positive and is looking forward to doing what he loves most and being back on TV and presenting on GB News just as soon as he can.

"Eamonn would like to say thank you for the wonderful care he has received from the NHS. He’d also like to thank everyone who has sent him get-well messages. Eamonn’s focus now is solely on resting, and getting better – which he is determined to do."

At the end of January, Eamonn told his fans that he was pushing himself hard in the gym to try and build up his strength and mobility.

Alongside a selfie he wrote: "Up to 4 days on GB News Breakfast from this week. Off to the gym to keep building my strength and mobility. Don't know why I'm smiling !!!! Pushing myself hard trying to make my legs respond . Wish me luck."
