ITV’s morning schedule got a shake-up on January 6 (2020) after the Jeremy Kyle axing scandal, which means that the show is now running an extra half an hour each day.
But not everyone has been rewarded for the extra work, the reports claim.
The newspaper quotes a source who told the Daily Star, “The rumour is that the amount that Holly and Phil have been given for their extra work totals more than the editor’s annual salary, believed to be around £130,000.”
The rumour is that the amount that Holly and Phil have been given for their extra work totals more than the editor’s annual salary.
It was reported that Holly, 38, already received a £200,000 salary bump in 2017, when her earnings were brought into line with Phil, 57, who was being paid more for doing the same job.
No one behind the camera, it’s claimed, has received a raise.
ED! has contacted This Morning for comment.
Despite the raise, it’s not all been plain sailing for the pair.
It was also alleged that there was a ‘toxic’ atmosphere on the This Morning set between Phil and his co-stars.
Friday morning presenter, Ruth Langsford, was said to have lodged an official complaint to bosses about Phil.
“Everyone who knows us, I mean, everyone at This Morning was like, ‘What the hell?’ The atmosphere in our studio is so wonderful, there’s such a lovely team. Everyone is lovely.”
Last week, the pair joined cast and crew onstage at the National Television Awards to pick up another trophy – Live Magazine Show.
But as the team accepted the award, viewers were convinced they spotted tension between Phillip and Ruth.
One viewer thought the interaction between the two looked ‘awkward’.
