Eamonn Holmes has revealed that his chronic pain started with a dislocated pelvis, joking that it was “not as erotic as it sounds”.

The This Morning presenter has been struggling with “draining and debilitating” pain in recent weeks and has been chronicling his battle and subsequent insomnia on social media.

According to The Irish Independent, Holmes has now shared that the problem started when he “mysteriously” dislocated his pelvis.

“My back is now out of alignment as a result,” he said.

“Nobody knows what it’s like unless they live with someone who has it,” he said. “I’m in huge pain and nobody knows how to stop it. This hurts like hell and I need to find a way to overcome it.”

The TV star recently shared with fans that he had been to hospital to try to get to the bottom of his problem and he has also turned to physiotherapy.

Another thing Holmes has tried is cold showers, telling his social media followers that they “dull inflammation and breathe energy back into your body”.

The star was also hopeful earlier this week when he had steroid injections, telling his fans they would “hopefully turn the tide”.

Holmes – who is married to his fellow This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford - underwent a double hip replacement in 2016 after dealing with hip, leg and back pain for more than 20 years.
