Eamonn Holmes frankly confessed that he didn’t know how to tie shoelaces.
The 61-year-old presenter of This Morning regrets not learning the technique and, as a result, wears only slip-on shoes.
Eamonn, who recently said he and his wife Ruth Reimsford were living their lives after being replaced this morning, made public, confessing that he was spoiled in childhood.
The Irish star explained how his mom Josie grew up and always tied the laces.

He said “Shoelaces” when asked about the life skills he would like to master on Daily Star Sunday.
Eamonn, who was told that he was at risk of being quiet or losing more work about the ax, continued to say: “As a result, I only wear slip-ons.
“Irish moms have a lot to answer about doing everything, especially for her son.”
The TV star also confessed to his beloved wife Ruth, 60, that he relies on several things.
Eamonn said of his wife for ten years: “She loves family life and has never seen anyone with the energy she has.
“She doesn’t push anyone. She is the boss of our relationship.”
Meanwhile, Ruth has previously stated that he likes to take care of her husband. “It is really important to have respect in a relationship. Being a couple is also nice, but we are individuals.
“Eamonn and I can argue with great heat. And 10 minutes later we are laughing about something.
“It was a long and happy relationship, but we have a moment.”
The couple were recently ousted from the hosting slots on Friday this morning and were replaced by Allison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, who initially turned down the show.
Eamonn and Ruth still appear on This Morning, but they host the show during summer breaks and other breaks.
The news was announced in November by Emma Gormley, Managing Director of ITV Daytime: “We are excited to have Alison and Dermot join the family of key announcements for This Morning.
“Alison recently delivered some of the show’s most memorable moments and we teamed up with the awesome Dermot to add to our lineup of great presentations from Phillip, Holly, Eamonn & Ruth and I think it’s a great pairing.
