Andrew Neil in tears to ‘kind’ Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield ahead of GB News launch

Andrew Neil shared an emotional moment with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning, tearing up over the presenters’ ‘kindness’.

On Wednesday’s edition of the ITV show, GB chair Andrew made a live appearance in the studio to discuss the latest news headlines.

After speaking stories including Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to name their newborn daughter Lilibet Diana, Andrew finished his segment by expressing his gratitude towards Holly and Phillip.

‘Listen, I wanted to come in today to thank you,’ he said while sitting on the sofa.

‘What are we being thanked for?’ Phillip asked, to which Andrew replied: ‘For being so kind. Wonderful.’

At this point, Andrew, 72, began to become tearful, choking up as he shared his sweet sentiment.

‘Andrew! That’s a lovely thing to say,’ Phillip said, while Holly said: ‘That is very kind of you.’

Holly then appeared to become overwhelmed by Andrew’s kind words, placing a hand on her chest and saying: ‘Oh, you are soft sometimes.’

One viewer said that they expected Andrew’s show of emotion ‘even took him by surprise’, tweeting: ‘That was truly heartfelt from Andrew.’

‘There’s clearly more to Andrew’s declaration of thanks than meets the eye, it can’t have been in regard to their presenting skills,’ another said.

Earlier during Andrew’s appearance on This Morning, he discussed the prospect of Piers Morgan joining GB News, as he is heavily rumoured to be doing so ahead of the channel’s launch on Sunday.

While the broadcaster said that Piers is ‘not amongst the launch’, he added: ‘We’re still discussing Piers.’

‘This network is paying him far too much to do nothing, so he doesn’t have to make up his mind,’ he added in jest.

Andrew recently revealed that he is having ‘good conversations’ with Piers over hiring him for GB News.

‘All my indications are that Piers doesn’t want another breakfast show. But I think if he does any more British news TV it’s more likely to be with us than with anybody else,’ he said.

‘We’re in good discussions, we continue to stay in touch and he knows that we feel that he would be a great addition to the line-up.’

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
