The presenter described himself as “humble” and “helpless but grateful” to receive physical help from others, explaining: “It’s really tiring when you have to say, ‘Do you mind?'” You could. ..? Thank you, I’m sorry. The good news is that surgery last year cured me of my back pain…I lost full mobility. I’m doing everything I can to get better. But it’s slow.”

Last week, Holmes launched a scathing attack on ITV during an appearance on his GB News series, accusing the broadcaster of reinstating the same few presenters.

“I mean, ITV is the worst,” he said. “If it’s not Ant and Dec, or it’s not Simon Cowell, or it’s not Bradley Walsh The hunt – they have no other ideas.”

The complaints against his former employer sparked a backlash from some viewers, with one person calling Holmes’ comments “pathetic.”
