The Holmes family have proved a breath of fresh air
So often the family lives of well-known personalities are kept under wraps, or so controversial the last thing they want is publicity.
This is not so with the family of Eamonn Holmes, and today we publish a word-portrait by his son, Declan, who provides a lovely insight into how they all get on.
Declan also relates how he and new bride Jenny had a worrying encounter with lions on their safari honeymoon, but fortunately all ended well.
He goes on to praise dad Eamonn, who has worked in the pressure of national television for decades, as a role model "in many respects". Praise indeed for one of our biggest and most likeable stars.
