Josie Gibson reveals ‘other side’ to Phillip Schofield viewers don’t usually see

Josie recently hosted This Morning with Phil

Josie Gibson has said she wishes people would see the more “hilarious” side to Phillip Schofield.

The This Morning presenter has previously hosted the daytime show with Phil, and viewers loved them together.

But Josie said viewers often see “presenter Phil” rather than “the Phil”.

Josie hosted This Morning with Phil last month when Holly Willoughby was forced off the show with Covid.

She also presented with Phil in November last year, but issued an apology after her stint!

At the time, Josie apologised for ‘all the mistakes’ she made.

She said on Instagram: “What a surreal week it’s been!!!! Three days of presenting one of the biggest daytime TV shows of all time [This Morning].

“I’ve got to give it up for this hero [Phillip] you have been my rock this week.

“Not only have you presented the show but you’ve had to teach me along the way.

“Sorry for all the slip-ups, you and [Holly Willoughby] and all the other presenters make it look effortlessly easy.”

She added: “You have made me laugh so much especially in the make-up room.

“Thank you for being there for me, thank you for being so gentle, warm and kind and thank you for being so bloody hilarious! Love you Schofe, what a legend!”

There’s good news for This Morning fans as Josie will be returning to host next week with Vernon Kay.
