Eamonn Holmes blasts 'bizarre' tribute to Phillip Schofield's celebration

Eamonn Holmes has taken a swipe at Phillip Schofield, as the GB News host subtly blasted the This Morning presenter by liking a tweet.

Eamonn and his co-host and wife Ruth Langsford were absent from Phil’s 40 year work anniversary celebrations yesterday, where Lorraine Kelly hosted a whole show dedicated to the presenter.

Instead of standing by his side and honoring him, some fans noticed Eamonn had liked a tweet which read: ‘This #lorraine show is bizarre.. why not celebrate 40 years on #thismorning instead of another show?’

While Holly Willoughby and Phil’s wife Steph praised him and his work, fans noticed Eamonn and Ruth’s absence.

Their feud has been ongoing since Eamonn outed Phil for allegedly cutting Ruth short behind the scenes of a Loose Women segment in 2019.

In an interview with the Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine, Eamonn said: ‘Phillip is renowned for snubbing people.

‘He’s very passive-aggressive.

‘It’s up to Ruth to say how she felt, but I was feeling hurt for her.

‘No one would have snubbed me like that.’

The saga continued when Eamonn publicly accused ITV of covering that the couple had been ‘dropped’ from their usual slot on This Morning, where they covered Holly and Philip during Fridays and half-terms before he made the move to GB News.

They were replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, but Eamonn said: ‘[ITV] didn’t want to announce that I’d been dropped because it would adversely affect audience figures, so they made it look as if I’d walked away from them rather than the other way round.’

An ITV spokesperson has since said: ‘This isn’t a version of events we recognise and as we have said before we wish Eamonn all the very best.’

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
