Phillip Schofield ‘hasn’t been in touch with Eamonn Holmes’ after This Morning exit

'They didn't really see eye to eye'

Phillip Schofield hasn’t contacted Eamonn Holmes since he moved on from This Morning, a report has claimed.

Presenters Phil, 59, and Eamonn worked alongside each other during the former GMTV star’s 15 years on the ITV series.

But 62-year-old TV host Eamonn left last November to head to GB News. And according to OK! magazine, the pair haven’t stayed in touch.

‘Not surprised’

It was previously reported that both Phillip and his This Morning co-star Holly Willoughby had ‘snubbed’ Eamonn.

However, Eamonn reportedly ‘wasn’t surprised’ by the claimed lack of reaction.

Eamonn felt like Phillip didn’t really like him.

A source told The Sun: “They worked together for so long but there’s been no contact since Eamonn parted ways.

“He’s not really surprised and is looking forward to his new gig on GB News.”

Despite Eamonn’s departure, Ruth Langsford – Eamonn’s wife, who he presented alongside for the ITV daytime show – is expected to remain with This Morning.
