Eamonn Holmes has detailed his battle with shingles, sharing a shocking picture of his face and saying he ‘ruined’ his son Declan’s wedding photos.

Speaking on Loose Women, the 61-year-old said that apart from ruining his son’s big day, he was forced to pull out of his presenting duties on This Morning at the time.

‘It was the first marriage in the family and that was what I looked like on the wedding day and I had to have that covered up,’ Eamonn said.

The Belfast man said he was left not wanting to be in any of the pictures as he felt he would spoil them. ‘I didn’t want to be the centre of attention with all this,’ he added.

‘But the timing was awful. The dangerous thing about mine was that if it’s on your face, it can affect, maybe impair your eyesight,’ Eammon said.

As a photo of the TV presenter’s puffy face was shown on screen, he said: ‘This is me with shingles looking like Quasimodo there and as you can see from that, it’s quite brutal.’

He continued: ‘You’ll say, “How on earth did you get that?” Well, if you’ve had chickenpox and you’ve had the virus, it’s there in your system and there’s a very high chance – 60 per cent chance or so – that you too will have shingles.’

Eamonn also took to his own Instagram page to share the photo of his face from three years ago with his followers in order to raise awareness about shingles.

Eamonn shares children Declan, 32, Rebecca, 30, Niall, 28, with his ex-wife Gabrielle and son Jack, 18, with his wife and This morning co-host Ruth Langsford.

According to Mayo Clinic, shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. Although it can occur anywhere on your body, it most often appears as a single stripe of blisters that wrap around either the left or the right side of your torso.
