The much-loved TV star celebrates his 63rd birthday today.

And a moved Eamonn, who has suffered health problems and recently lost his mother, expressed his gratitude for the “outpouring of affection” he has received.

It had been a few days since the presenter, who has 1million followers on Twitter, had used the platform.

Eamonn Holmes thanks Twitter fans

The popular TV personality noted the challenges he has faced over the last several months as he marked his special day with a tweet.

Eamonn, who continues to recover from back surgery, underwent another health setback several weeks ago after he fell at home and consequently had an op on his shoulder.

And then, in a heartbreaking blow, his mother Josie passed away last month aged 93.

Eamonn made it clear how much he has appreciated both friends and strangers sending him comforting words.

“I’ve done my best to say thank you and again I do today on the occasion of my birthday.

A third fan tweeted in response: “It is very hard being in constant pain. One day at a time, Eamonn. Really miss you on This Morning, your lovely natural approach and curiosity. Hope you enjoy your birthday.”

One day at a time, Eamonn.
