A Sky News correspondent in Jerusalem broke the news of Holly Willoughby‘s departure from This Morning.
While reporting in the Middle Eastern metropolis, the reporter broke the news of the presenter’s surprising comment.
‘Let’s get some news away from here immediately, and it’s breaking news,’ he said.
‘The presenter Holly Willoughby has told ITV that she will not return to host This Morning.’
‘She has not returned to the show since a man was charged last week with an alleged plot to kidnap and murder her.’
In their London studio, he speaks with presenter Shamaan Freeman-Powell, who continues to discuss the topic.
Viewers reacted to the choice on social media.
‘Shameful editorial decision, Sky News,’ fumed one person on X, formerly Twitter.
Another added: ‘I have to laugh that SkyNews has Jerusalem as it’s backdrop, an area where people are dying in large numbers, only to talk about Holly leaving This Morning.’
‘You’re reporting from a war zone and this is the story?’ asked another.
Holly, 42, announced her departure from This Morning in an Instagram post.
‘I have let ITV know today that after 14 years, I will not be returning to This Morning,’ she began.
She added that it was ‘a difficult goodbye’.
