POLL: Who do you want to stay on This Morning after Holly and Phil rift?

Holly and Phil open This Morning on Monday

This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby returned to front ITV’s daytime show on Monday after a weekend of speculation about an off-screen rift.

Last week it was reported that the co-hosts are “not as close as they once were” and “barely speak” off camera.

Phillip said in a statement that “the last few weeks haven’t been easy” but added: “We’re the best of friends — as always, she is an incredible support on screen, behind the scenes and on the phone.

“Holly has always been there for me, through thick and thin. The last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us.”

A source close to Holly told the Mail On Sunday: “Don’t be surprised if you never see them together again, apart from on camera. This has all been so heartbreaking for Holly, but she knows she has to stand on her own two feet and cut the strings.”

The pair have been regular presenters of the popular daytime show since 2009 but insiders claim that replacement hosts are already being lined up.

Phillip’s contract with ITV is up for renewal in September but as he takes the summer holidays off,  his last show could be in July.

The Mirror reported on Saturday that ITV is prepared to axe Phillip if viewers “no longer believe in the chemistry” between the presenters.

A source told The Sun last week that Holly would stay should Phillip leave, emphasising that they are “separate entities”.

Another insider told The Sun: “Holly and Phil have gone through rough patches before like any professional pairing who have worked together for over a decade. Before they have always seemed to move on, but this time it seems different.”
