The future of the ITV daytime show looks to be in doubt following rumours of a ‘fallout’ between Phil, 61, and Holly, 42.
While they have maintained a unified face on the This Morning couch, and Phil recently stated that they are “still the best of friends,” suspicions have circulated.
Speculation arose when it was alleged the Dancing On Ice hosts were ‘barely communicating’ behind-the-scenes and that their relationship had ‘cooled’.
According to reports, Phil is’refusing to leave This Morning,’ with one insider calling the situation a “runaway train that cannot be stopped.”
Just days ago, GB News broadcaster Eamonn, 63, unleashed a scathing assault on the duo, and now he’s back.
The broadcaster, who used to co-host This Morning on Fridays with his wife Ruth Langsford, 63, liked a Tweet that said, ‘IMO one of the worst things they did was to shaft Ruth and Eamonn so that’s a drama alone.’
The Tweet, which Eamonn liked, was in reaction to a video footage of Phil on Loose Women speaking over Ruth.
The Twitter user sharing the clip captioned it: ‘Phillip Schofield shutting Ruth Langsford down while she discusses Emmerdale’s grooming plot should have been a massive red flag from the start…’

On Friday’s This Morning, Alison Hammond, 48, and Dermot O’Leary, 49, took over for Ruth and Eamonn, and he subsequently went on to broadcast on GB News.
Speaking on his show with co-host Isabel Webster on Monday May 15, Eamonn tackled the allegations of Phillip and Holly’s split front on, despite the duo forgetting to acknowledge it on This Morning.
‘They may or may not be together on the telly today, but he’s brought in lawyers, she’s brought in [a] PR team. The public surely have sussed that there’s no chemistry, that there’s a broken fit between the two of them.’
Eamonn continued stressing that in his opinion, This Morning ‘does not depend on who presents it’.
‘It’s an institution. It will carry on no matter who presents it, and anybody can check the viewing figures. There’s no difference between whether they present it or anyone else,’ he added.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV1.
