Eamonn Holmes has had his say on the reported fallout between This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
Eamonn's comments on the 'feud' came just before Holly and Phil appeared on Monday's This Morning where they failed to address the speculation and presented the show as normal.
Speaking on TV about the headlines the pair have been making, Eammon said: "I think there should have been a special award for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for best actors."
He went on: "They may or may not be together on the telly today. He's brought in lawyers, she's brought in a PR team. The public surely will suss that there's no chemistry, that it's a broken fit between the two of them and that This Morning does not depend on who presents it."
"It's an institution", Eamonn continued to say: "It will carry on no matter who presents it and anyone can check the viewing figures, there's no difference between whether they present it or anyone else."
Eamonn used to host This Morning during the holidays and on Friday with his wife, Ruth Langsford, before they were replaced by Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond in August 2021.
Ruth remained with ITV, continuing her role on the panel of Loose Women. However, it wasn't too long ago there were reports of a fallout between her and Phillip.
