Eamonn says it’s “easy to feel sorry for yourself in the hospital,” but he says it’s a “privilege” to be looked after by doctors and nurses.

He said the NHS was “underpaid and understaffed”, and said those who looked after him during his stay in hospital had his “respect, admiration and thanks”.

“But right now my heart belongs to the NHS – and the Angels who got me back on my feet. Thanks,” he concluded sweetly.
