Eamonn Holmes: This Morning host goes solo after heartbreaking ‘legend’ admission

This Morning host Eamonn Holmes, 60, hit the red carpet without his lady love Ruth Langsford, 59, who seemingly appeared to skip tonight’s festivities. The TV veteran was all smiles and waved to photographers as he headed into the event.

Eamonn looked smart as he rocked a two-piece suit which he teamed with a white shirt and a black tie.

The ITV favourite appeared in high spirits as he posed for pictures on the red carpet at The Sun Military Awards 2020, which celebrates the heroes of the Armed Forces.

It comes after Eamonn took to Instagram and shared a heartfelt message about Hollywood actor Kirk Douglas who died at the age of 103.

In view of his 573,000 followers, the This Morning host shared a snap of the A-list actor in the film The War Wagon.

The small-screen star revealed Kirk was the main reason he fell in love with Western films.

Eamonn wrote: “I first saw Kirk Douglas when I was seven at The Capitol Cinema on The Antrim Road in Belfast. It’s now a Tesco. My Dad loved Westerns and as a result so did I. The film was The War Wagon and in it Kirk tells how he got the dimple in his chin! You’ll have to watch it now. #ripkirk Screen Legend.”

Fans flocked to comment on the post, as one person said: “Complete legend. Sleeping on his ring to make the dimple.”

Another person remarked: “RIP such legend just loved his performance in Spartacus an amazing man what achievement to reach 103…still sad sending all love prayers to his family at this time.”

“Sad news. The last of the greats,” another fan remarked.

Eamonn’s post comes after Kirk’s Oscar-winning son Michael Douglas confirmed the news of his dad’s death via Instagram.

“It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103,” Michael said.

“To the world, he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to.”

“Kirk’s life was well-lived, and he leaves a legacy in film that will endure for generations to come, and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to aid the public and bring peace to the planet.

“Let me end with the words I told him on his last birthday and which will always remain true. Dad – I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son.”

Kirk was best known for his role in the 1960 historical action-packed film Spartacus, which won a Golden Globe and four Oscars.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years Anne Buydens, and his three sons Michael, Joel, and Eric.
