Eamonn Holmes shares regret over ‘not keeping hip bones after surgery’ on This Morning

Eamonn Holmes has joked that he regrets not keeping his hip bones following his double hip surgery in 2016.

The 61-year-old’s hilarious comments were made during Monday’s This Morning, when he was interviewing Alison Hawthorn, who makes jewellery using her own breast milk.

Reflecting on the idea of turning parts of the human body into wearable pieces, Eamonn hilariously quipped: ‘I always regret when I got my hips replaced that I didn’t keep them. You’d have mounted something for me, wouldn’t you?’

Eamonn’s co-host and wife, Ruth Langsford, struggled to stop smiling, while his comment also left Alison, 30, grinning.

Of his hips, Eamonn added: ‘You’d have got something sorted out for those.’ 

During the interview, Alison told Eamonn and Ruth, also 61, that she’s ‘loving’ the process, adding: ‘The orders are coming through.’

Alison decided to try and make her first ‘keepsake’ last year using her own breastmilk while feeding her twin sons, now aged 17 months. 

After the pretty trinket – a keyring – turned out well, she began offering her services to others who wanted to transform their own breastmilk into something they can keep forever.

After expanding the business to make jewellery from ashes, pet fur and human hair, she claims she has been inundated with orders. 

To make the jewellery, a customer sends at least 10ml of expressed breastmilk, double bagged and in a padded envelope to Alison.

From there, she uses a double boiling method and adds preservation powder, before leaving it to dry for a few days on greaseproof paper.

After this, Alison crushes it into a fine powder with a pestle and mortar and adds it to the resin to create the jewellery.

Eamonn’s side-splitting comment comes after he left This Morning viewers bewildered after comparing Dr Zoe Williams hair to an alpaca’s during Thursday’s show.

The Irish presenter was running through the programme’s topics as he introduced the doctor who said via video chat that she would be discussing, ‘how your health can be benefited from gardening and even alpacas’.

Quick to jump in, Eamonn remarked: ‘Your hair reminds me of an alpaca today! You just want to pet it, don’t you? It’s very alpaca-ish’ before gesturing with a petting motion.

Collapsing with laughter, Dr Zoe, 41, exclaimed, ‘Don’t touch my hair!’ as she pointed her pen at the camera.

While Dr Zoe took the joke in her stride, viewers were left shocked at the comments, taking to Twitter to pen: ‘Uh Eamonn what tf was that about? Have u learnt nothing?! U never talk about petting a black woman’s hair. And saying it looks like an Alpaca?! #thismorning’.

Come again? While Dr Zoe took the joke in her stride, viewers were left shocked at the comments and took to Twitter to voice their shock
