Ruth Langsford makes cheeky dig at Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby's 'feud'

Ruth Langsford may have made a cheeky dig at Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby amid their alleged 'feud'.
Some reports have alleged that the pair’s relationship off-screen has come under strain in recent weeks.
Schofield, who recently returned to the show after taking pre-planned leave during his brother’s sex abuse trial at Exeter Crown Court last month, released a statement to suggest that 'the last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us'.
“As I have said before, Holly is my rock. We’re the best of friends – as always, she is an incredible support on screen, behind the scenes and on the phone,” Schofield said.
“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.”
Willoughby is yet to comment on the situation.
Well, it seems that on a recent episode of Loose Women, host Ruth Langsford may have taken a slight dig at the duo's alleged 'falling out'.
The 63-year-old was sat alongside co-stars Coleen Nolan, Janet Street Porter and Kéllé Bryan, as they discussed whether you would trust your friends to set you up on a blind date.
Nolan told the panel: "I would trust all of you to pick a blind date."
Langsford then joked: "You could trust me, although we might be feuding at the time.
"If we were feuding, I'd pick you a really horrible one!"
Tyla has contacted ITV for comment.
Her joke follows on from the actions of ex-host Fern Britton, who might have taken a subtle swipe at Schofield after having the 'loveliest catch up' with fellow former This Morning presenter, Eamonn Holmes.
She tweeted on Monday evening: “Unexpected calls from old mates are so lovely. Just had the loveliest catch up with @EamonnHolmes.
“I think we have known each other since the 80’s when we were babies [crying laughing emoji]. Shooting the breeze [three red love heart emojis].”
Fan speculation quickly began after Holmes' made some comments suggesting that Phil and Holly should win the 'special award for best actors'.
He implied they would never let their true feelings show on screen, saying: "There should have been a special award for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for best actors. They may or may not be together on the telly today.
"The public surely will suss that there's no chemistry, that it's a broken fit between the two of them and that This Morning does not depend on who presents it."
A rep for Fern Britton did not reply to Tyla's request for comment.
