Eamonn Holmes revealed he has contracted Covid despite being double-jabbed.

The TV presenter apologised as he confirmed in a Twitter post he would be a “no show” for the coming days while he was in self-isolation.

Speaking candidly, the 61-year-old reassured fans he was “coping with the symptoms and effects well” after contracting the virus.

He wrote: “Covid finally caught me. Thankfully I’m Double jabbed. More than half way through my isolation and coping with the symptoms and effects well.

“Unfortunately I’m going to be a no show for some professional and personal events. Just want to let everyone know why & offer my apologies.”

On and off-screen, Mr Holmes has always had the support of his wife Ruth Langsford with whom he has been with for 25 years.

The showbiz power couple have been married since 2010.

It comes after Mr Holmes revealed the couple would likely spend Christmas apart as they will both spend time with their own mums.

He said: “We have this issue now, in that we’ve got a sea dividing us. We often have a dilemma of whether I go to Belfast, whether Ruth comes with me.

“But Ruth wants to be with her mum. My mother is 93 this year. It’s easier for us often to be apart.”

Ms Langsford said spending Christmas apart has never been a problem.

She told Woman and Home magazine: “Being apart for Christmas has never been a problem. I wouldn’t be going to Belfast this year, because I need to be with my mum. It’s about family for me.”
