This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes stepped out for the premiere of film Belfast at the Northern Ireland capital’s Waterfront Hall last night. It was his first public appearance since he announced that he had caught coronavirus, despite being double jabbed.

At the time Eamonn said he was “coping with the symptoms and effects well”.

The 61-year-old touched down in his native Belfast and appeared to be in good spirits.

The presenter hit the red carpet and was all smiles as he posed for pictures.

The veteran broadcaster was supported by a walking stick, before he headed inside the venue to watch the film.

Eamonn looked dapper sporting a navy blue suit which he teamed with a crisp white shirt.

A spokesman told MailOnline: “Eamonn has tested negative both before leaving England and arriving in Belfast.

“He passed his lateral flow test and all the requirements as laid down by The Belfast Film Festival for which the opening film was tonight.”

Movie Belfast is set in the late 1960s and is directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh.

The ITV favourite was joined by a star-studded cast, including Jamie Dornan and Dame Judi Dench.

It comes just days after Eamonn revealed that “Covid had finally caught me” in a candid post on social media.

The TV star apologised to his fans ahead of being a “no show” at a number of work commitments after contracting the virus.

On Twitter, he wrote: “Covid finally caught me. Thankfully I’m double jabbed.

“More than halfway through my isolation and coping with the symptoms and effects well.

“Unfortunately I’m going to be a no show for some professional and personal events.

“Just want to let everyone know why and offer my apologies.”

It has been a tough year health-wise for Eamonn, who previously opened up on his shingles battle, and also revealed his struggles with chronic back pain.

Meanwhile, Eamonn is also set to return home to Northern Ireland for Christmas as he and his wife Ruth Langsford look set to spend the festive season apart.

The husband and wife duo shared that they planned to spend the holidays with their mothers.

Eamonn told Woman magazine: “We have this issue now, in that we’ve got a sea dividing us. We often have a dilemma of whether I go to Belfast, whether Ruth comes with me.

“But Ruth wants to be with her mum. My mother is 93 this year. It’s easier for us often to be apart.”

The couple admitted it was not a “problem” to spend the festive season apart.
