Amanda Holden has shared a statement to her social channels over an apparent 'feud' with Holly Willoughby.

A recent report in The Sun said the TV pair would be sitting at opposite ends of the garden at this year's ITV summer party to avoid an awkward encounter.

Insiders also told the paper tension between the pair has been bubbling for some time, which has only greatened since Philip Schofield left ITV after admitting to an affair with a younger male colleague on This Morning.

However, Holden has now taken to Instagram to rubbish the report, saying the story surrounding her relationship with Willoughby is 'completely made up'.

She wrote: "The Story in The Sun today about Holly and I is completely made up, full of contradictions and utter rubbish.

"Sadly this means every paper will now write it too. So I have to put this up for a few hours to try and add perspective and truth.

"Sadly strong and intelligent women have for far too long been pitted against one other when we should all be celebrated in our own right. What a surprise the article is written by a MAN."

She continued: "The 'rift' story now circulating as a result of this article - which I have woken up to this morning and was not checked for factual correctness - simply does not exist. There have been some huge assumptions made this week and everyone has feasted on them.

"These type of articles need to stop. The language around women (in most pieces I read every day) is laughable. It's so different to how men are written about. Women are still expected to say nothing, suffer silently and just get on with it. And we do… mostly."

Holden concluded her post by saying: "These stories are there just to distract us from the actual news... We are becoming a world which is gradually being eroded of all its best qualities - humour, backbone and truth."

The debunking of the story from Holden comes after the Britain's Got Talent judge seemingly mocked Willoughby as she returned to This Morning on Monday (5 June).

Holden took to social media to post a video of herself in a white dress where she opened the message by saying: "Hello, it is Tuesday. Are you ok?"

While this might seem like a pretty normal message, it appears the video was a bit of a dig at the This Morning presenter.

Appearing on the show for the first time since Schofield's departure, Willoughby, with a white dress, opened her statement by saying: "Right, deep breath. Firstly, are you ok? I hope so."
