Eamonn Holmes shares blast from the past photo in skintight shorts as co-stars gasp

Eamonn Holmes’ trip down memory lane had the GB News panel gasping earlier today, after he unveiled a revealing picture from his younger years. The channel was chairing a heated debate about “risque singers”, such as Miley Cyrus and Madonna, and whether or not raunchy or revealing costumes could be “harming” their fans – and the 64-year-old was happy to participate.

“Would any of us dress like Miley Cyrus?” quizzed host Bev Turner, holding up a photo of her in a barely there dress with cut out panels on the waist and sides of each thigh. Eamonn’s eyes seemed glued to the scantily clad picture she was sharing, showing great interest in the outfit.

Then attention turned to Eamonn himself, after a photo flashed up on the screen of him aged just 21. “The thing about clothes and not wearing many is that it can work for anybody and everybody. As you can see here, we were making a football outfit,” he narrated.

He seemed to have a crystal clear memory of the trend for skintight clothing, telling Bev that it began around 1980 or 1981. “At some stage, shorts got very tight,” he explained matter of factly.

The debate had arisen in reaction to Keren Woodward – the singer from 1980s girl group Bananarama – questioning whether modern attitudes to on-stage modesty could have declined. Claiming that she and the other group members had become sex symbols “in donkey jackets”, she hit back against the pressure she feels is being placed on young women today.

She told the Daily Mail: “I can’t get my head around what some of the singers wear these days.

“If that’s what they want to wear that’s fine, if that’s their choice, but I’m not sure it always is,” she warned darkly.

“I’m proud of the fact that we became pin-ups without being overtly sexy. It wouldn’t happen now.”

She had pointed to the “terrible body image” and “insecurities” her friends’ teen daughters have experienced, and challenged that scantily clad women on stage would not help with their self-esteem.

Bev agreed with her comments, stating that she often wonders why young female entertainers she’s seen seemed to have “forgotten their skirts” or were dressed in their pants.

Referencing her 13-year-old granddaughter who’s a huge Taylor Swift fan, she lamented: “I don’t want her to think that to get on in life, you’d have to run around with your skirt off.”

However, she then appeared to praise Eamonn for his snap in skimpy, tight shorts, declaring: “If you’ve got it flaunt it!”
