Carol McGiffin shared a post from former ITV employee Dan Wootton in which he requests the ITV CEO to resign.
The 63-year-old recently departed Loose Women and has subsequently spoken out about former This Morning host Phillip Schofield, calling him ‘rude.’
She has now expressed her concerns about the persons in control of the TV station by posting a colleague’s tweet.
Dan, who worked as a reporter on Lorraine for eight years, claims that senior executives were involved in a ‘cover-up’ for Phil.
‘Woke ITV CEO Carolyn McCall joyfully fires Piers Morgan, Jeremy Clarkson, Carol McGiffin, and Jeremy Kyle, but allows her top executives to cover up for Phillip Schofield for FOUR YEARS,’ it said.
‘They must all step down now,’ it continued.
Dan, 40, added: ‘This was the reason I left ITV in November 2019.’

The tweet comes after Phil, 61, released a statement to the Daily Mail admitting to an affair.
In a statement to the publication, he stated that the connection took place when Phil was still married to Stephanie Lowe, the mother of his two kids, Ruby and Molly, and before he came out as homosexual.
He also admitted to lying about the connection to his supervisors and coworkers, which led to his 35-year agency dropping him.
The statement in full reads: ‘I am making this statement via the Daily Mail to whom I have already apologised personally for misleading, through my lawyer who I also misled, about a story which they wanted to write about me a few days ago.
‘The first thing I want to say is: I am deeply sorry for having lied to them, and to many others about a relationship that I had with someone working on This Morning. I did have a consensual on-off relationship with a younger male colleague at This Morning.
‘Contrary to speculation, whilst I met the man when he was a teenager and was asked to help him to get into television, it was only after he started to work on the show that it became more than just a friendship. That relationship was unwise, but not illegal. It is now over.
‘When I chose to come out I did so entirely for my own wellbeing. Nobody “forced” me out. Neither I nor anyone else, to my knowledge, has ever issued an injunction, super or otherwise, about my relationship with this colleague, he was never moved on or sacked by or because of me.’
He continues: ‘In an effort to protect my ex-colleague I haven’t been truthful about the relationship. But my recent, unrelated, departure from This Morning fuelled speculation and raised questions which have been impacting him, so for his sake it is important for me to be honest now.
‘I am painfully conscious that I have lied to my employers at ITV, to my colleagues and friends, to my agents, to the media and therefore the public and most importantly of all to my family. I am so very, very sorry, as I am for having been unfaithful to my wife.’
Other former ITV staff have also spoken out about the matter.
‘Schofield has finally been caught out,’ wrote Eamonn Holmes. But he isn’t the only one to blame. Four high-ranking members of Itv management were well aware of his character…and NEVER once intervened to prevent him from dominating or using his position over young people.’
‘A storm is coming…’ Dr. Ranj Singh remarked.
