“Eamonn Holmes” and “smouldering” aren’t words you’d usually expect to read in the same sentence.
But the daytime TV star got plenty of ladies of a certain age all hot under the collar when he shared a sexy throwback photo on his Twitter account.
Notice that he bears an uncanny resemblance to Poldark star Aiden Turner? If you squint, that is.
Joking that catching up with sleep following his departure from Sky News has done wonders for his looks, the star captioned the photo: “Even with just 3 days lie in from @SkyNews I’m beginning to see the difference in my looks. Watch out @sarahjanesky and @jonathansamuels.”
His army of devoted Eamonnettes were suitably impressed with the snap. “You are so good looking Eammon xx…” said one fan, adding: “Thought I was looking at Poldark there for a minute…”
And no, they weren’t being sarcastic, since you asked.

“I think you look far better now #silverfox…Hunky Irishman ;-)” added another fan, “OOh I say Eamonn! Very manly!”
Other Twitter followers compared Eamonn’s dandy highwayman look to a young Donny Osmond, David Essex, Danny Dyer, and, er, an old Donny Osmond. Charming!
The 56-year-old presenter waved goodbye to Sky News after 11 years last week. Luckily the reaction to his throwback photo played out a little better than his final stint on the show, when he was scuppered in his efforts to say goodbye to his fans because the credits cut in early. Oops.
