    Eamonn Holmes is back in Belfast visiting family – and it looks like he’s extremely pleased to be there!

    The This Morning presenter posted a snap of the Tayto crisps sign, captioning it, ‘The first sign that greets you at George Best Airport Belfast. Now that’s a proper Welcome!’

    Fans were quick to wish Eamonn well, especially after the news that he was missing his mum so terribly over the lockdown period.

    “You try to be productive, you try to do things… but nobody earns any money but you do these things to [keep going]. The main thing is to keep well. I miss family, I miss not getting back to Belfast. I worry about my mum and all sorts of things like that,” he told viewers during an Instagram live.
