TELLY legend Eamonn Holmes said he feared his wife Ruth Langsford would become his carer.
The former host of This Morning62 years old, suffered three slipped discs, causing him chronic pain that requires daily treatment.
I said Time he had what he calls “ten months of hell” fighting agony.
Asked if he was worried about Ruth – his wife of 11 years and This Morning co-star even longer – as his carer, he said: “Yes, I’m really scared of that .
“I have to say she doesn’t have the best caring nature. So it’s better for me to have enough money in the bank for a nurse to take care of me as I get older.”
He said, “What is that nurse called in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest?” Nurse Chase? “It was her.
“The odd time during this illness, I said to her, ‘Can you wear my socks?’ or ‘Can you help me with this?’ and she would say, ‘I’m going to do this once but don’t rely on this.
“I won’t do this again. I’m not your caretaker.”
Eamonn recently quit This morning after 15 years hosted a breakfast show at GB News with Isabel Webster.
He said that Ruth, 61, who lost her shift when he left but has her own QVC fashion line to focus on, supported his decision to leave.
Eamonn told The Sun earlier this month how his health problems began to affect his life.
He said: “I can’t bend down to pick up things so Ruth ended up having to wait for me, and I know my boys are especially a little embarrassed with the way I move around.
“I had to stop driving and sell the car back to the dealer, which was quite frustrating, and I had to use a hook to pull up my pants when I got dressed in the morning and a few other things to get to my shoes. and socks.
“It just makes everything is so much harder. I had just finished filming a BBC food show called Farm To Feast, and the director had to do all sorts of clever tricks just to hide how much trouble I was having. “
