However, some of Eamonn's followers speculated that he had altered the photo because the doorframe seemed to be warped. One person pointed out: "He's edited this pic, if you look bottom right, it's curved lol."

Another chimed in with: "look at the door as well." A different user remarked: "oh dear god lmao, photoshop fail ah Eamonn come on."

In contrast, a supporter defended him: "So what does it matter. We all edit photos to make us look and feel better."

In May, Eamonn and his wife Ruth Langsford stunned fans by announcing their separation after 14 years together. Reports suggest Ruth has been struggling with intense guilt over her estranged husband's health issues.

She is said to be concerned about giving the impression that she has "abandoned" him during this difficult time.

A source told Bella magazine that Ruth is feeling "terribly guilty" and that seeing recent pictures of Eamonn looking "frail has been torture for her" The insider continued: "Even though she has every right to live her life and do what is right for her - she's convinced the public will see her as abandoning Eamonn in his time of need as he struggles with his health."
