Why does Eamonn Holmes not like Holly and Phil?

ALISON BOSHOFF asks – why DOES Eamonn Holmes hate Phillip Schofield? Published: 02:03 BST, 10 June 2023 | Updated: 22:23 BST, 10 June 2023

  • With its blaze of bruising publicity, it’s little wonder insiders have dubbed ‘s daytime TV downfall the ‘sofapocalypse’.
  • But as Phillip retreats to lick his wounds and fights for her onscreen survival, there’s one former This Morning colleague who is not weeping into his morning coffee over their fates.
  • Indeed, is giving every impression of eating up the chaos with a big smile, long spoon and a side order of ice cream and sprinkles.
  • Again and again he has returned to the topic on his live show.
  • ‘Anyone watching today who has kissed Phillip Schofield, let us know,’ he deadpanned this week, mocking Schofield for saying he had made just one ‘mistake’ in his 41-year career, while attempting to defend his fling with a male colleague aged 20.

As Phillip retreats to lick his wounds and Holly Willoughby fights for her onscreen survival, there’s one former This Morning colleague who is not weeping into his morning coffee over their fates Indeed, Eamonn Holmes is giving every impression of eating up the chaos with a big smile, long spoon and a side order of ice cream and sprinkles.

Again and again he has returned to the topic on his live GB News show And on Tuesday, the day after her much-mocked ‘are you OK?’ statement, after her two-week break from the show following Schofield’s exit, Eamonn observed of Holly: ‘You think she’s got a big mouth? She won’t be using it today.’ Clearly, the Irishman has a canny sense for what makes good television.

But there’s more to Eamonn’s relish at 61-year-old Schofield’s downfall than just wanting to entertain his viewers.

  1. The roots of his loathing for his old colleague go back decades, a roiling mix of grievance at his professional and financial success, and a hatred of what Eamonn perceived to be rude and high-handed behaviour.
  2. Added to this, there seems to be a genuine concern for the young man who became involved with Phillip.
  3. Indeed, Eamonn says he and wife Ruth Langsford, another former This Morning host, were good friends with the youngster, particularly motherly Ruth who worked with him after his ill-fated romance ended and he moved to Loose Women, where she’s a presenter.
  4. But his comments have certainly made life tricky for his wife.
  5. From her hot seat on Loose Women this week, Ruth has had to navigate live handovers with Holly, sometimes only a few hours after her husband’s latest outburst.
  6. ‘People in TV are genuinely agog over how aggressively Eamonn has briefed against Phillip, but he thinks Phillip and Holly were a pair of phoneys, that Phillip was a colossal fraud.

He’s genuinely angry,’ says a source. ‘Lord knows what Ruth is thinking.’ Some of Eamonn’s assertions have been challenged. He claimed the young man stayed over with Phillip on ‘playtime’ Thursdays and would arrive back at work on a Friday morning in a taxi paid for by ITV.

  • Yet Schofield insists he had only around five encounters with the man, that he only came to his flat once and he didn’t have an ITV taxi account.
  • Friends of Eamonn, meanwhile, tell me they aren’t surprised by the interventions because Eamonn’s oft-expressed view was that he was the only proper journalist on This Morning — and it was unjust that Schofield was not only above him in the hierarchy, but paid so much more than him.
  • Eamonn was said to be on around £150,000 a year for his one-day-a-week presenting role, while Holly and Phil were on more than £700,000 for their four days.

Some of Eamonn’s assertions have been challenged. He claimed the young man stayed over with Phillip on ‘playtime’ Thursdays and would arrive back at work on a Friday morning in a taxi paid for by ITV A source tells me: ‘Phillip had the red carpet treatment.

He and Holly were seen as stars. All TV is a hierarchy and they were paid far more. Eamonn chafed against it. ‘His rider was a block of inexpensive cheese, but Phillip would get lovely wines brought in from Farr Vintners. ‘Eamonn couldn’t see how someone like him, a proper journalist, would come beneath the bloke who was in the broom cupboard with Gordon The Gopher.’ This angst was only heightened by Eamonn’s troubled past with This Morning editor Martin Frizell.

Indeed, Frizell said grimly of the relentless coverage of the scandal last weekend: ‘I think there’s some scores being settled.’ He named no names, but surely must have been thinking of Eamonn. Many years ago, Frizell was — just like Eamonn — a noted journalist, covering the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Tiananmen Square massacre.

In 2000, he joined his wife, Fiona Phillips, on GMTV as editor of the show. She had been the anchor on GMTV for three years by then, alongside Eamonn, who had been in situ since 1993. At first, their sofa pairing was harmonious. But Eamonn admitted in his autobiography: ‘He was the boss of both me and his wife — not a scenario they would recommend in Harvard Business School.’ Within weeks of arriving, Frizell told Eamonn he wanted to downgrade him from five days to four, bringing in Andrew Castle.

The shake-up ended with a titanic clash over Eamonn’s hours and pay. Eamonn wanted to be paid as per his five-day-a-week contract, while management felt he should take a pay cut to reflect the lesser hours worked. Lawyers were called in. Eamonn kept his money, but started to look for a new job.

  • One pal from those days sighs: ‘He definitely had a point, but it is easier to cross Eamonn than it is to cross a road.’) Eamonn told friends later: ‘I can’t tell you how awful Martin Frizell made life for me.
  • He made my existence a living hell.’ This angst was only heightened by Eamonn’s troubled past with This Morning editor Martin Frizell (left) A year after leaving GMTV, Eamonn started presenting This Morning on Fridays with wife Ruth, while Fern Britton and Schofield were the Monday to Thursday team.

Again, at first all seemed well. But Fern quit in 2009, allegedly tired of Phillip’s power on the programme and his higher salary (although she later denied she’d departed because of money). Phillip was allowed to choose her successor — step forward his ‘bestie’ Holly Willoughby — and, in 2016, the pair were joined by Eamonn’s former boss Frizell.

Frizell was delighted by Phillip, whom he regarded as the ‘king’ of the show. For his part, Phillip called Frizell: ‘The best captain we have ever had.’ Where did all of this leave Eamonn? Out in the cold, apparently. A source said: ‘Phillip was very dismissive of Eamonn, quite openly, and so was Martin.

We used to call Eamonn and Ruth ‘the B team’. Guests were cherry-picked to be on the show from Monday to Thursday — that’s where the prestige was. ‘On a personal level, Phillip and Eamonn never got on. Eamonn found him snippy and passive- aggressive, and thought he treated the lower-down people on the show very badly.

  1. Phillip was impolite.
  2. He would ignore you and then be nice to you, and you were meant to be grateful for that.
  3. It made Eamonn furious.’ A source said: ‘Phillip was very dismissive of Eamonn, quite openly, and so was Martin.
  4. We used to call Eamonn and Ruth ‘the B team’ In the run-up to the 2019 general election, tensions came to a head.

Frizell was insistent Eamonn should present then Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon with a This Morning Christmas bauble.

  1. Eamonn was equally insistent that he would do no such thing, saying it would breach impartiality rules for broadcasters in the weeks before an election.
  2. ‘He and Frizz didn’t speak again after that,’ says the senior source.
  3. In late 2019, Schofield’s much-gossiped about relationship with his young runner came to an end.
  4. Some say he declared his love for ‘Schofe’ at the National Television Awards in January 2020 — others claim they had an altercation.
  5. TV presenter Piers Morgan says the former happened, while GB News host Dan Wootton says he saw confrontations between the man and Phillip and Holly separately that night.

A few weeks later, Phillip ‘came out’ to none other than Eamonn and Ruth on the Friday edition of This Morning. Afterwards, Eamonn said he had only been told what was happening 20 minutes before. Onscreen, Eamonn joked to Phillip that discovering he was gay settled a question: ‘There is this great imponderable in life that has always bothered me.

  • Phillip, however, fully defended Eamonn, tweeting: ‘Can I just say that @EamonnHolmes & @RuthieeL were utterly magnificent with me today, privately downstairs just the three of us and upstairs in front of the world.
  • ‘I couldn’t have hoped for a better, calming and loving set of hugs and support, I adore them both.’
  • However, Eamonn now says he feels he was ‘used’ on that day.

In October 2020, Phillip released his big-money autobiography, Life’s What You Make It. A sign of the lack of goodwill between the two men is that he misspelled Eamonn’s name throughout. Within nine months, he and Ruth were on a warning that Frizell wanted to shake-up the presenting team to include popular stand-in Alison Hammond.

  1. The married couple, both 60 at the time, were ‘surprised and furious’ to be told they were losing their regular weekly gig.
  2. Well-connected sources claimed they felt ‘cast onto the scrapheap’.
  3. When they left, many colleagues got in touch to offer their good wishes for the future.
  4. From Phillip and Holly there was not a solitary word, call, text or card.

Eamonn told pals that Holly was ‘blank, aloof and cold’ when they were colleagues — and now it’s as if he never existed.

  1. ‘He says that were rude, cold and poisonous towards him which he still cannot understand.
  2. ‘Eamonn’s view is Holly and Phil always thought they were way above the audience, and way above Eamonn and Ruth — and they were wrong on both counts.’
  3. As Holly fights to retain goodwill among viewers — and for her continued career on This Morning — you have to wonder: does she ever reflect on how life might be easier if she had Eamonn on her side?

When did Phillip Schofield turn GREY

Answered By: Nathaniel Bailey Date: created: Dec 13 2023

This Morning has been the talk of the town in recent weeks, with headlines about Phillip Schofield’s exit from the ITV daytime show and subsequent headlines dominating the press. The 61-year-old presenter left the This Morning sofa last month after it was speculated that he had been “feuding” with his “rock” Holly Willoughby.

Things took another turn when Schofield confessed to having an “unwise” but “not illegal” affair with a “much younger” male ITV employee whilst he was still married to his wife, Stephanie Lowe. Since Schofield’s confirmation of the relationship, Willoughby accused Schofield of “lying” to her about the affair after she asked him about it “when reports of the relationship first surfaced”.

Ex-This Morning host Eamonn Holmes has been particularly vocal in making claims about his former colleagues Schofield and Willoughby, giving a bombshell interview to GB News’ Dan Wootton, in which he suggested Willoughby should follow Schofield out the door.

Viewers have also dragged up clips of Schofield on This Morning throughout the years, including ones containing his “ex-lover”.

The star, who has previously been branded a “silver fox”, admitted in the past that he started going grey when he was just 16 years of age. By the time Schofield was 19, he’d resorted to boxes of dye to mask his grey hairs. During an appearance on Kem Cetinay’s Kem Cuts in 2019, Schofield told the former Love Island star : “Well the thing is 16 and I was getting grey hairs – my mum went grey when she was 16. Schofield was told he looked “like a badger” (Image: Birmingham Post and Mail) “By the time I was 19, I was colouring it and I went to live in New Zealand and that is when I dyed my hair. For the first time at 19 – and it was covered up for absolutely ages – and I’m not sure I’ve said this out loud before so you have a bit of an exclusive here.

“But I just signed a contract for ITV and I decided to let my hair go and my office got a phone call from the Head of ITV saying: ‘Can you please tell him to put it back? We didn’t hire a grey guy’.” Schofield was told he looked “like a badger” and had no choice but to go back “into the grey closet”.

During an episode of This Morning some time ago, Schofield corrected his former best friend Willoughby when she referred to him as “grey-haired”. “I like to call it silver, as a matter of fact,” he hit back at the time. Click here for more TV and celebrity news.

Speaking for the first time since Schofield admitted having an “unwise, but not illegal” affair, his former This Morning co-presenter wrote on Instagram: “It has taken time to process yesterday’s news.

  • When reports of this relationship first surfaced, I asked Phil directly if this was true and was told it was not.
  • It’s been very hurtful to now find out that this was a lie.” Latest: ITV says it has ‘no plans’ to axe This Morning On Friday, the veteran broadcaster quit ITV and admitted to having an affair with a colleague who worked on This Morning.

Rumours of the relationship had first begun to circulate in 2020. ITV said it had investigated – but both Schofield and the employee “repeatedly denied” the affair. The broadcaster was forced to issue the statement after questions were raised over what network bosses knew about Schofield’s conduct.

Fellow former This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes had said Schofield was “not the only guilty party” and claimed top management “knew what sort of man he was”. Questions had also been raised about what Willoughby knew, something she has now hit back at with her statement. Schofield, 61, left This Morning last week, amid reports his long-term friendship with Willoughby had come under strain.

The two have been open about their close friendship over the years, including sharing pictures on social media of them while on joint holidays with their families.

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.

Are Holly and Phil really friends

Answered By: Bernard Gonzales Date: created: Mar 17 2024

Take it from someone in a TV duo: Holly and Phil are simply sick of each other | David Mitchell W hy is the so diverting? Maybe you don’t find it so. Maybe current affairs interest you in direct proportion to their importance. If so, you’re lucky. For most of us, the dry detail and/or savage tragedy of momentous issues drive our minds towards triviality.

  • I have never grasped what’s happening in Syria or why to be scared about China, so this week I’ve been digging into what’s going on with Holly and Phil.
  • This is not what the two people involved want.
  • That’s one thing they would still agree on.
  • These are not circumstances where those at the centre of a furore are feeding off it and enjoying it, like Piers Morgan or Ryanair.

Having resigned as co-presenter of This Morning (and subsequently from ITV), Schofield will want the story to go away. The things he has come to prominence saying on television are too bland to be noticed if the viewers are all speculating on whether he’s a nightmare to work with.

  • Similarly, as she continues on the show, Willoughby’s ability to seem sympathetic and relatable for two and a half hours every morning will be compromised by a lingering aura of anger and ruthlessness.
  • They want this to stop.
  • ITV wants this to stop.
  • Hence the disingenuous expressions of goodwill amid the wreckage.

Schofield stepping down saying “I want to do what I can to protect the show that I love”; Willoughby thanking him “for all of his knowledge, his experience and his humour”, adding “the sofa won’t feel the same without him”; and, on the programme itself, from which Willoughby is also currently absent, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary paying tribute in such shaken and sombre tones that, had they not tremulously wished him “all the best for the future”, you’d think he’d died.

This is what makes the story so diverting. The contrast between the evident reality and the hastily applied coat of bullshit. They are lying to us and we can tell. That makes us feel powerful and them look foolish. And it’s a much better story than the one they’ve been feeding us for years. Let’s look at that story.

It was that Phil and Holly were inseparable and devoted buddies. The last we heard of it was earlier in the month when, in the hope of quelling the storm of gossip, Schofield released a statement saying: “Holly is my rock. We’re the best of friends Holly has always been there for me, through thick and thin.

  1. And I’ve been there for her.” “Sources” were quick to say that Willoughby had been enraged by this outburst but, for years, it had been the party line.
  2. They were supposedly exceptionally close friends: they went on holiday together and, in 2016, released photos of themselves splashing in the sea with Phil in an “I heart HW” T-shirt and Holly in an “I heart PS” one.

This was partly a parody of the affair Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift were conducting at the time in which Hiddleston had proclaimed his regard by means of papped-T-shirt, but it was also supposed to be sincere. Schofield captioned one of the photos with the word “bestie” which Willoughby then reposted, adding “Love!!!”.

You can’t ‘have it all out’ because the root cause of each person’s distress is the other’s constant presence This is all a bit emetic, but they’d obviously concluded that, whether they were close or not in real life, it was a good idea to seem like they were. Perhaps they were inspired by Ant and Dec, whose friendship has made them market leaders of their genre of television.

But Ant and Dec met as teenagers, came to prominence side by side and stayed there. They are indisputably genuine friends. Were Phil and Holly? It is entirely plausible that, before recent controversies over and the, they got on fine. Or well. Or even extremely well.

  • But projecting the notion that they were splashing-in-the-waves “besties” is over-egging the pudding.
  • There’s a 19-year age gap.
  • He’s been on telly since she was four.
  • That doesn’t preclude their being friends but it would inform the relationship.
  • There was no suggestion of that texture in the story they were trying to tell, which was basically just a couple of kids having a hell of a laugh.

Except one of them’s in his 60s. Their friendship was a fiction written by people unskilled at writing fiction. Consciously or subliminally, the audience didn’t buy it and felt patronised. So when the lie is exposed, that’s box office. Working intensively with one other person in showbusiness can be trying.

I know this from years of constant creative collaboration with, an extremely close friend of mine whom, for months at a time, I found unbearable. My only consolation was that he felt the same about me. This was during a period when we were working together – either writing or performing – for the vast majority of the time we were awake.

When you spend hours and hours, day after day, with the same person, and it is someone with whom you are not in love, it’s hard not to take their continued presence as a long, low-energy assault on your very soul. Whatever the specifics of Schofield and Willoughby’s quarrel, a major cause can be summarised in two words: you again,

They must be sick of each other, a condition that their attempts to broadcast an image of idyllic amity on social media will have exacerbated because it necessitated spending even more time together. Rob and I could have given them a key piece of advice. It’s simple: don’t have a row. We never have. Even though you want to, don’t.

It will not clear the air, it will poison it. You can’t “have it all out” because the root cause of each person’s distress is the other’s constant presence. That is not OK to express. There is no person who can take that well, let alone one who is already finding you infuriating.
