Last year, Eamonn had surgery to try to correct the severe and chronic pain he was suffering from in his back.
But two weeks into his recovery he fell backwards down the stairs at the Weybridge home in Surrey that he shares with wife Ruth.
Eamonn was spotted in a wheelchair earlier this year as he left Wembley Stadium where he watched his team Manchester United beat Newcastle 2-0 to lift the Carabao Cup.
He has also been photographed using a pair of crutches.
After months off-screen Eamonn started making his return to TV in January, admitting he was struggling with staying indoors.
Recalling his horrific injuries, he said: "Suddenly it was as if someone had shot my left knee from behind.
"It literally collapsed without any warning. I was on a curve of the stairs, and I just went back down the stairs, boom, boom, boom down the whole staircase until I hit the stone floor in the hallway.
"Blood was pouring out my mouth, and a bone was sticking out my shoulder."

Eamonn added to the Daily Mail: "Ruth came rushing down the stairs. She kept saying, 'You're fine, everything's okay, you're fine.' I said, 'Ruthie, there is a bone sticking out of my shoulder — I'm not fine'."
Part of Eamonn's rehabilitation also includes boxing sessions.
