He is on the road to recovery after suffering a dislocated pelvis and three hernias in his back in March.
And on Thursday, Eamonn Holmes, 61, put on a very neat display as he attended the world premiere of ROBBO: The Bryan Robson Story at HOME Cinema in Manchester with his son, Jack, 19.
The presenter seemed cheerful as he stepped on the red carpet with his cane as he grew stronger amid his health ailments.

The film, ROBBO, follows the career of English football manager and former Manchester United and England player Bryan Robson.
Also in attendance at the premiere were Sir Alex Ferguson, 79, Steve Bruce, 60, Michael Carrick, 40, Harry Maguire, 28, and Wayne Rooney, 36.
Eamonn’s use of a cane comes after he was diagnosed with a dislocated pelvis and three hernias in March.
The TV personality has openly documented his health problems on social media, saying that recovery is like ‘learning to walk again’ as he continued to rely on crutches and walking aids to walk.

Eamonn spoke of his pain on an April episode of Loose Women: ‘Thank you for asking me, because obviously no one else bothers to ask or wonder. I don’t like to complain, but it’s three hernias.
‘Actually I should come here with a crutch, that’s how I am now.
“Frankly, we can sit around me and I have steroid injections and everything is fine and hopefully it will be okay, but to me it’s amazing to see how many of you are suffering from chronic pain, isn’t it” it doesn’t matter whether you are a man, woman, young old.’
He went on to say, ‘I couldn’t sleep at night, laying there at night with Ruth sleeping next to me and it was awful, it was really awful.
‘I’ve been working on that for six weeks, I have the injections that take away the acute pain. It’s a blessing, but the physicality of not being able to stand up straight, but I’m going to rehab to get better.’
Oh no: Eamonn talked about his pain on an April episode of Loose Women, talking about how he had ‘chronic pain’ and had to use a crutch, adding that he couldn’t sleep at night’ because of the discomfort
Chronic pain: Weeks later, he gave a glimpse of his recovery on Twitter, where he shockingly revealed that the injury caused him to lose nerves in his right leg
Weeks later, he gave a glimpse of his recovery on Twitter, where he shockingly revealed that the injury caused him to lose nerves in his right leg.
Eamonn said, ‘Okay, I’m still dependent on crutch and the idea is to get rid of this and the guy who’s going to fix this for me is this guy James Davis!’
The Northern Irish star said: ‘This all looks very simple and it is very simple, except it’s like learning to walk again.’
“I’ve lost nerves in my right leg and there are certain actions I can’t do, so even the simplest thing is hard, but it gets better.”
The video showed Eamonn, who had a double hip replacement in 2016, exercising in his backyard trying various exercises to strengthen and stabilize his pelvis and the muscles around his lumbar spine.
Last month, Eamonn shared how circulatory boosters have helped him “get back outside” with daily activities.
Elsewhere, Eamonn previously revealed that he had tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this month, but has since made a full recovery.
Eamonn apologized for being a ‘no show’ on This Morning and personal events while recovering at home, following his absence from the ITV magazine show.

Eamonn and his wife Ruth Langsford typically filled in Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning in half terms, but were noticeably absent.
It has since been announced that he has quit This Morning to join GB News after presenting 15 years on the show.
The veteran presenter will “present his own show several times a week” on the news channel, along with a number of veteran journalists who spearheaded the “free speech” project.

Noting that “all good things come to an end,” a source told The Mirror that Eamonn’s departure “came at the right time for both him and ITV”.
Meanwhile, Eamonn’s move will likely jeopardize 61-year-old Ruth’s This Morning slot. The paper said it is “unlikely she will remain on the show without him” but “expected to continue as a regular on Loose Women”.
In December, Eamonn and Ruth were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary after a 14-year stint.
The source added: ‘Eamonn’s move to GB News marks the end of an era. He will be missed by many ITV viewers.”
