It might not be Thursday, but that hasn’t stopped Eamonn Holmes from sharing a throwback picture of himself and his lookalike son.

The This Morning presenter took to Instagram to share a sweet picture of himself and Declan, now 33, at a football tournament over 20 years ago as he reminisced about taking his children to sporting events.

Captioning the picture, 61 year old Eamonn wrote: “It used to seem quite a chore getting my kids to sporting events. Now I so miss it.

“The year was 1999 and Declan has just been crowned Penalty King. I swear it was like watching Cantona. Well close …” followed by a laughing face emoji.

Fans were quick to reply, with one gushing: “Lovely picture of you both”, while another commented: "Proud daddy moment.“

Some fans also used this opportunity to leave Eamonn well wishes, after he recently suffered chronic pain and was diagnosed with three slipped discs.

One follower wrote: "Eamon it's a good memory, focus on new ones, so when you are old, you will never be completely alone. I hope you are getting better."

At the end of April, the TV presenter appeared on Loose Women alongside his wife Ruth Langsford, where they were joined by Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash.

"I'm not one to complain," Eamonn told the panel. "I don't like talking about myself, I don't like complaining. But Joe, it's three slipped discs."

Eamonn went on to explain that he's on the mend and can sleep again, but was humbled by the number of people who reached out to him about suffering from the same issue.

He said: "I've actually have to come over here with a crutch. What I want to say to people, I've had steroid injections and hopefully I'll be on the mend. But what this has envisioned to me is to see how many of you suffer from chronic pain…"

"How I found out how many people suffer from chronic pain is that I couldn't sleep at night. Trying to sleep is awful."

He continued: "I've gotten the injections, which have taken away the acute pain and I can sleep now, which is a blessing. Absolutely great. But the physicality of not being able to walk straight…

"You know, I'm going to embark on a whole rehabilitation programme – I'll get fit, I'll get strong but it will take a while."

"The doctor said to me, 'When you get this, your nerve endings die off, but they grow at a centimetre a month,' and I thought well that's good.

"And he said, 'No but it's got to go from your hip to your toes.' So that's going to be about a year."
