Despite undergoing surgeries and daily physiotherapy sessions, Eamonn has yet to find relief from the excruciating condition.

Ruth stated: "I don't know how much Eamonn's mobility will improve. We live in hope. He does the physio, but there might have to be some acceptance that this might never be 100% right."

"With any care situation - and there are millions of carers in this country - it isn't always easy. It's testing but we manage as a family."

Speaking to Woman's Weekly about the significance of maintaining good health, especially as one ages, she remarked: "I look at Eamonn, who's had his health and back problems, and it makes you realise how important your health is."

The Mirror reported on Friday that TV icon Eamonn has been enduring almost daily gruelling physiotherapy sessions in an effort to fully regain his mobility. He underwent surgery for bulging discs in his back but suffered a further blow when he fell and fractured his shoulder last year.
