Ruth Langsford has given an update on her husband Eamonn Homes' health after he left fans worried following a hospital stay.
Earlier this week, Eamonn explained why he has been absent from his presenting gig on GB News, telling fans he'd, unfortunately, had to undergo "unexpected" treatment for his long-term back condition in hospital.
And on Tuesday's instalment of Loose Women, Ruth was asked how Eamonn was now doing by her fellow panellist Janet Street-Porter.
"Thanks for asking. Well, he's out [of the hospital] now, and he's resting at home," Ruth, who recently showed off her "powder brows" transformation, told her.
Ruth continued: "Well, you know he's had this bad back problem, it played up again, and he ended up in hospital for a couple of days.
"Yeah, so it's been a bit worrying. That's why I wasn't here last week. But he is out now and resting at home."
Addressing viewers at home, Ruth added: "Thank you all for your very good wishes to Eamonn."
This comes after 62 year old Eamonn reassured his followers they can expect to see him back on the show next week.
He also shed light on his struggles with his back problems, which he has suffered from for years.
Posting a statement on his Twitter page, Eamonn began: "Hi everyone, Many of you have been asking why I haven't been presenting GB News for the past week.
"Unfortunately, due to a reoccurrence of a long-term back condition, I've had to undergo some unexpected hospital treatment and am now following Doctor's orders by taking a short time off.
"However, I'm looking forward to being back alongside Isabel, my Breakfast co-presenter and friend, next week.
"Even though I only joined GB News six months ago the whole team and our amazing audience have shown me immense support which has been greatly appreciated," the Irish presenter continued, taking the opportunity to thank his bosses at the news channel.
"I now just need some time with my family to heal and recuperate. See you soon, Eamonn," the TV host added.
The presenter has had so much pain with his back that he has resorted to some more extreme health measures to try and relieve it.
The chronic issues have been difficult for Eamonn to manage his daily life and work commitments at times.
Recently opening up about how he copes, the broadcast journalist joked: "Swearing has got a bad reputation – which I personally think it doesn't deserve.
"I have to be honest, I like a swear or two or three… it makes me feel better. How can anyone deal with pain without swearing?" the TV star told Best magazine.
Eamonn has also been visiting a physiotherapist for a while to help and ease his pain, and does daily exercises to assist with the work he's doing.
