Eamonn, 62, took to Instagram with the sweet photo of himself and his mum cuddling on a couch as he paid tribute to her.

With a big smile for the camera, the broadcaster put his arm around Josie’s shoulder in the photo that was shared with his Instagram followers.

He wrote: “So my birthday today and Mum’s tomorrow. She died just 2 weeks before her 94th birthday.

“We will always connect at the hip. archers. Always too right.’

She passed away last month at the age of 93 and Eamonn revealed that he and his “four wonderful brothers” were there to say goodbye to her.

The Belfast Telegraph reported that Holmes was unable to attend the funeral for ‘health reasons’.

However, the publication stated that he was virtually addressing the congregation at St. Patrick’s Church in Belfast.

The GB News host took to Twitter to thank his fans for their support and revealed that he has read all of their posts.

“To all you genuinely good people who have extended so much kindness and comfort to me after my mother’s death, I have read all of your messages and am truly overwhelmed and humbled,” he said.

Eamonn, who is married to Loose Women star Ruth Langsford, previously opened up about his relationship with his mother when he labeled her his “hero”.

The ex-This Morning host shared how Josie’s mind was still “sharp as a nail” and praised her for making him “the man I am”.

His father Leonard died of a heart attack more than 30 years ago.

Eamonn recently revealed he suffered a broken shoulder following a horrific fall at his home in Surrey.
