Eamonn Holmes has revealed the struggle is real amid the ongoing lockdown restrictions, which has seen him suffer with restless nights. Taking to his Twitter page in the early hours of Wednesday morning, the This Morning host confessed “demons” have been coming to him during his sleep.

“Beware of sleep… that’s where the demons lurk,” he tweeted. “A few visited me last night. Anyone else have too many nightmares?” Several fans of the star rushed to reveal that they could relate to him. Homes Under the Hammer presenter Lucy Alexander also replied, saying: “Yes. Awake at 5am. Don’t like it. Xx.”

However, one follower made a joke about his wife Ruth Langsford, writing: “Ask Ruth, Eamonn, her last vision is you at night, she mustn’t sleep at all.” To which, Eamonn replied: “Ha ha… always in the land of nod. She sleeps so well.”

Another fan admitted that she was having “really strange dreams” ahead of her dad’s funeral – and Eamonn revealed how much he sympathised. “Not surprising Michelle,” he said. “30 years on I remember waking up on the same day with the same feelings. Sorry for your loss.”

Speaking on the Events That Made Me podcast, the 60-year-old explained how he must “stay relevant” to avoid losing his job.
