"Hello there everyone, just want to say something to you all from the bottom of my heart... and that is thank you," he said from the sofa.

"Ruth and I have been absolutely overwhelmed yesterday (December 18) and today by the amount of messages.

"Could I just generally say... thank you, thank you, thank you! We do feel the love, really appreciate it, but stop it, stop it now!" Eamonn added with a grin.
