Holly Willoughby looks downcast as she’s seen for first time amid Phillip Schofield ‘feud’

Holly Willoughby has been pictured for the first timefollowing reports of a “feud” between her and fellow This Morning co-hostPhillip Schofield.

The pair, who have hosted the ITV daytime show together since 2009, have been hit by allegations of a rumoured feud in recent days,with sources claiming that “Holly just wants Phil gone”.

Amid the ongoing reports, 42 year old Holly has been spotted looking deep in thought as she stepped out in Hampshire on Saturday (May 13).

For the outing, the TV personality looked stylish as she sported a casual look which featured a trendy £1,890 camel coloured trench coat by designer brand Chloe.

Underneath the oversized coat, Holly wore a cream fleece as well as a pair of straight leg blue jeans which boasted a raw hem. To add some colour to the neutral look, she opted for a pair of sporty trainers which featured pink, navy and light blue details.

To finish off the look, the TV presenter could be seen carrying a Gucci shoulder bag worth £2,480 across her body as she shielded her eyes with a pair of black sunglasses.

In keeping with the casual look, mum-of-three Holly also tucked her icy blonde locks into her high-necked fleece as she looked intently at her phone.

Holly and her This Morning co-host Philip once had a notoriously close friendship, which saw them go on holiday together and enjoy lots of banter on-screen.

Holly was also a shoulder for Phillip to lean on when he came out as gay in 2020, as heemotionally opened up to her live on This Morning.

However, their friendship is now reported to have hit the rocks.

A This Morning insider has told The Sun on Sunday the pair's working relationship has broken down irretrievably and “Holly just wants Phil gone.”

The Sunday paper also reported that ITV has "no plans" to hold peace talks in an attempt to heal the rift, and there are doubts as to whether they will even present Monday's show together.

Their source went on to add that the atmosphere on the morning show has been "shocking".

They said: “When the cameras stop, so do they. No chat, no communication. It used to be relaxed and friendly.

“It seems that Holly clearly wants to stay — and a lot of the team want Phillip gone. It is not a pleasant working environment for a place that used to be such fun when they were mates."

OK! contacted ITV as well as reps for Phil and Holly for comment.

Talk of a rift between the pair emerged earlier on this week, with Phillip, 61, going on torelease a statement as a result, a decision which is said to haveleft Holly "blindsided" as she had no idea he was going to do so.

Following the reports,Holly has only broken her silence in recent days to praise Catherine, Princess of Wales for her surprise cameo during the grand finale of the Eurovision Song Contest.

As Eurovision kicked off on May 13, the official Instagram for the Prince and Princess of Wales shared a video of Kate playing the piano in a pre-recorded opening video featuring last year’s winner’s Kalush Orchestra.

Commenting under the video, Holly simply wrote: “This is incredible.”
