Eamonn Holmes reveals heartbreak after his mum Josie dies – and mourns 'at last she's reunited with daddy now' | The Sun

EAMONN Holmes has revealed his heartache after his "beautiful" mum died.

The TV presenter, 62, shared the heartbreaking news alongside an image of Josie in a touching Instagram post.

Eamonn said Josie was reunited with his dad Leonard now, who died following a heart attack over 30 years ago.

He wrote: "My 4 amazing brothers and I said Goodbye for the last time to our beautiful Mum Josie this afternoon.

"She's at last reunited with Daddy now. That is our only consolation.

"We loved and will miss her so much. Every time I visited her she came to the door to bless me with Holy Water and Wave goodbye.

"Now sadly it really is Goodbye Mummy x".

Eamonn, who is married to Ruth Langsford, previously opened up about his relationship with his mum as he branded her his "hero".

The ex-This Morning presenter told how Josie's mind was still "sharp as a tack" and praised her for making him "the man I am".

He also reflected on his relationship with Josie, who still lived in his hometown of Belfast, after the Queen's death.

In 2021, Eamonn spoke of his joy at being reunited with his mum after Covid forced them apart.

He added: “I think a lot of people felt that frustration [at restrictions] So to meet up with loved ones is everything.”

Eamonn's celeb pals were quick to flood the presenter with support following the tragic annoucement.

GMB star Susanna Reid wrote: "I’m so sorry. Sending love."

Huw Edwards said: "Love and sympathy".

While Charlotte Hawkins wrote: "Oh no, so very sorry. Sending love & a big hug to you."
