EAMONN Holmes said he has been working hard to retrain his balance after suffering a horrific fall last year.

"It's all about regaining my balance. Hard work made harder balancing on one leg."

His wife Ruth Langsford posted an encouraging message, writing beneath his photo: " Keep going x" alongside four hand clapping emojis.

Recalling his horrific injuries, he said: "Suddenly it was as if someone had shot my left knee from behind.

"It literally collapsed without any warning. I was on a curve of the stairs, and I just went back down the stairs, boom, boom, boom down the whole staircase until I hit the stone floor in the hallway.

"Blood was pouring out my mouth, and a bone was sticking out my shoulder."

Eamonn added to the Daily Mail: "Ruth came rushing down the stairs. She kept saying, 'You're fine, everything's okay, you're fine.' I said, 'Ruthie, there is a bone sticking out of my shoulder — I'm not fine'."

He was then left with a four hour wait after Ruth called for an ambulance.
