Eamonn Holmes' little secret.

It's a wobbly cushion that looks like a hot water bottle with knobbly bits. So that's what puts a smile on his face every morning when he presents the breakfast programme on Sky News.


There I was this morning, talking to him about a piece in the newspapers that says people who develop bad backs are in fact finding their jobs a pain in the neck. And that the best way to counteracts the problem is to change your mindset about your job.


Ah well, says Eamonn, after three hours in the news hot seat, he often cannot stand up straight - and his doc prescribed an orthopaedic cushion. And, with that, he whipped out this weird and wonderful bumpy rubber wobbly thing. Just looked them up on the internet - and many sufferers swear by them. In America, they'll refer to one as a "cush-tush"!


So next time you wonder what's making Eamon giggle, now you know, he's having his coccyx massaged on the quiet.
