The host has said that he has suffered with chronic pain for years, but that this time he was struggling particularly bad. Holmes took to Twitter to share his experience with his followers, asking them to post their own stories of chronic pain.

"At hospital," he wrote, "pain like I've never experienced in my life. Need to find out what's causing this. Wish me well.

He went on: "Will have clearer picture of what's causing my pain tomorrow but just to say folks, like so many of you I've lived with variations of chronic pain for years. Don't allow it to stop me working and next week I'd like to be a voice for many of you & discuss the subject on This Morning."

"In the meantime I am proud that my experience has given you a voice and I'm humbled by your various and different experiences & your kindness to me," he said.

"If between us we can get more solutions more understanding and more resources directed towards CP then that would be a result."

Northern Irish Holmes has been speaking openly about his experience of chronic pain for a while now. Earlier this week, he shared a photo of himself attending physio in an attempt to address the issue.

Later, he tweeted that he had only gotten 90 minutes sleep before "the pain woke me up."

This Morning's Lorraine Kelly and fellow ITV star Emily Atack are among those sending their support and well wishes to the presenter.
