EAMONN Holmes has opened up about being forced to wait four hours for an ambulance after a terrifying fall at home.
The GB News presenter has been dealing with chronic back pain which forced him to undergo an operation last October.
Now Eamonn, 63, has revealed that just two weeks into his recovery from the op he fell backwards down the stairs at the Weybridge home he shares with wife Ruth Langsford, slamming into the stone floor at the bottom.
Recalling his horrific injuries, he said: "Suddenly it was as if someone had shot my left knee from behind.
"It literally collapsed without any warning. I was on a curve of the stairs, and I just went back down the stairs, boom, boom, boom down the whole staircase until I hit the stone floor in the hallway.
"Blood was pouring out my mouth, and a bone was sticking out my shoulder."
Eamonn added to the Daily Mail: "Ruth came rushing down the stairs. She kept saying, 'You're fine, everything's okay, you're fine.' I said, 'Ruthie, there is a bone sticking out of my shoulder — I'm not fine'."
He was then left with a four hour wait after Ruth called for an ambulance.
Eamonn said: "Ruthie put a pillow under my head and sat with me in the hall and we tried to sleep."
After months off-screen Eamonn started making his return to TV in January, admitting he was struggling with staying indoors.

He went on to reveal how he had struggled recovering at home as he is so used to being busy.
Speaking ahead of his screen return, Eamonn said: “As any of you who are long term sick, or who are in any way convalescing, particularly at home, will know, there's a lot of frustration involved in it.
"So for me, I am going to give it a go. And hopefully things will get better as a result of doing those day to day things.”
