Lorraine Kelly has spoken out about the rumoured ‘feud’ between ITV colleagues Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

Schofield and Willoughby have hosted This Morning since 2009, and are known to have enjoyed a solid friendship off-screen.

Throughout the years, they’ve faced various challenges together - not least, of course, queue-gate, when the pair were accused of jumping the line to see Queen Elizabeth II lying in state.

However, The Sun newspaper recently reported that their relationship had ‘cooled’ with a body language expert claiming there was evidence of tension during a recent episode.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby have presented the show together since 2009.

After the reports emerged, former This Morning host Eamonn Holmes weighed in on the matter.

Holmes, who now presents on GB News, said: “I think there should’ve been a special award for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for best actors.

“The public surely have sussed that there’s no chemistry, that there’s a broken fit between the two of them.”

Now Lorraine Kelly - who presents Lorraine, which airs on ITV just before This Morning - has also shared her thoughts on the matter.

She told The Sun: “Do you know what?

“They were back today and it was business as usual and everyone is just getting on with it.”

Lorraine Kelly has now spoken out about the rumoured feud.

Kelly went on to say that it is ‘unlikely’ that either of the veteran presenters would pack it in and leave the show for good, adding that it wouldn’t be something she’d want to see.

“I would be sad if they left the show but I don’t think that is ever likely to happen and I think they’re just getting on with it,” she explained.

Schofield previously responded to the claims that he and Willoughby were not on speaking terms, telling The Sun that the last few weeks ‘haven’t been easy’ for them due to a number of reasons - including Willoughby being ill and his brother being convicted of child sex offences.

In a statement, he said: “As I have said before, Holly is my rock.

Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield have been pals for years.

“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. And I’ve been there for her.

“The last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us.”

Schofield, whose brother Timothy, 54, has been convicted of 11 sexual offences involving a child between October 2016 and October 2019, continued: “My family went through a real ordeal.

“And Holly’s support throughout meant the world to me, as did the support of my bosses at ITV, my editor Martin Frizell and the whole This Morning family, including our amazing viewers.

"And of course Holly has herself been ill with shingles.”
