Eamonn Holmes spoke about his 92-year-old mother’s heartbreaking Valentine’s Day message to his late father on social media today. The 61-year-old took to Instagram to recount the story, which he said incorporated “love and loss all in one.”

Alongside a picture of his parents on their wedding day and a more recent photo of his mother Josephine, Eamonn shared the beautiful tribute.

The This Morning star told his 716,000 followers that his mum had re-read the couple’s last Valentine’s Day cards, which were sent three decades ago.

The TV star’s father Leonard died of a heart attack at the side of the road following a camping trip with his wife and Eamonn’s younger brother.

His post began: “My Father passed away 30 years ago. My Mum is 92 and almost entirely housebound.”
