Carol McGiffin slams ‘bl**dy rude’ Phillip Schofield following This Morning feud | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Recently, there was speculation that This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have fallen out behind the scenes.

Rumours of a feud first began after the 61-year-old revealed things have not been easy for them over the past few weeks together with Holly taking down a tribute to Phillip on her Twitter.

Despite the supposed feud, the duo have continued with their hosting duties over the past week, although many viewers have noticed an ungainly tension between them.

With some calling for his or her on-screen partnership to finish following the missing chemistry, former Loose Women star Carol McGiffin spoke about her experience when being interviewed by Phillip.

Chatting with Dan Wooton on his GB News show, the 63-year-old recalled when she was on This Morning to advertise her book.

Although Holly wasn’t there when she appeared on the show, she said: “Phillip was there but he wasn’t very nice to be honest.

“He treated me as if it’s like, ‘Oh one other Loose Woman with one other book’. I type of get that.

“But, he was so not interested it was a struggle and I used to be giggling, actually laughing because I couldn’t consider he was being so b****y rude.

“That’s the one experience I’ve had with him but I’ve heard a whole lot of stories about him being unpleasant to a whole lot of people, especially to a whole lot of individuals who were further down the food chain in TV.”

Phillip first began hosting This Morning back in 2002 and has been alongside Holly ever since she joined in 2009.

With many viewers now slamming the “fake” on-screen relationship, the ITV show suffered a devastating blow by losing viewers of their 1000’s.

On Wednesday’s This Morning, the show attracted 551,000 viewers, although in comparison with the week prior, with 647,000 people tuning in, figures dropped by over 100,000.

Touching on the duo’s rumoured fallout, Carol told the GB News host it’s clear they not get on and questioned why neither one in every of them want to depart.

She added: “They’ve been there for therefore long they will’t possibly need any more cash, either of them.

“I mean, give it up. You’ve had your time, make way for any individual else who people actually like.”

Although Carol confessed she doesn’t consider the broadcaster will take motion and won’t axe either of them.

The previous Loose Women star said: “ITV will do whatever they will to maintain him (Phillip) there for some reason. I have no idea what that reason is.”
