Eamonn Holmes bilateral hip replacements

Good luck to Eamonn Holmes who is due to have both of his hips replaced imminently. Having both done at the same time makes a lot of sense for many people, particualrly when you are working and can’t take two lots of time off to recover.

Sir Alex Ferguson joined well-wishers sending their luck to This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes as he hosted his final show before his double hip replacement.
Eamonn, 56, admitted he put off the operation for “too many years” and was looking forward to a “new lease of life” as he sat down with wife Ruth Langsford, nurse Tonya Kloppers, dancer Wayne Sleep – who has undergone the same surgery – and his hip surgeon Sarah Muirhead-Allwood.
In a video message, Sir Alex said: “I believe you’re going in for the big op on your hips, I had mine done two and a half years ago and now I’m in great condition.
“I did all my exercises, listened to the doctor and the physios. If you do that, you’ll be back 100%, back on that couch mooching with Ruth. Good luck, talk soon.”
Eamonn hailed the former football manager as the “inspiration” for his replacement as he regaled the guests with a story about watching a sprightly Sir Alex climb over football stadium seating.
He said: “Thank you boss! The most impressive thing about the boss is he was sitting behind me at Old Trafford one day and he came along the row and he literally, after his operation, lifted his leg up, climbed over the seat and sat down. I thought, ‘Well, there’s my inspiration’.”
Celebrities as well as viewers sent in their support via Twitter.
At the beginning of the show, Eamonn told viewers: “It’s more au revoir than goodbye for a little while as I’m going to be rebuilt. They are taking out both of my hips and giving me new ones. I’ve put it off for too long …and for me, I think it’ll be a new lease of life.”
