Eamonn Holmes has admitted that his health has declined causing him to need a hearing aid after going through the ‘manopause’.
The broadcaster has said:
‘Of course there is a manopause. There is a natural decline. And I’m not a superhuman. But I have a positivity, a lust for life. I don’t feel that I want to slow up.’
In 2016 Eamonn had to have a double hip replacement and it was then when he discovered that he had lost around 30% of his hearing and he had to wear a hearing air when he was presenting on Sky News.
He continued to say:
‘I was reassured that it was nothing abnormal, but it’s a lot to cope with,’ he said.
‘No one warns you that your hearing is going to go down from 50. Learning a third of your hearing has gone is not the best birthday present.’
Holmes also said that he gets ‘frustrated’ and ‘liberated’ by it.
