What did Phillip Schofield say?

Holly, 40, appeared on The One Show on Thursday evening to discuss her latest gig.

However, the star, who is currently on a summer break, seemed surprised to see Phillip during the chat.

She sat down with Alex Jones and Ronan Keating ahead of Take Off’s debut.

Ronan started: “You’ve got a brand new BBC show, which you are doing with Bradley Walsh, rather than with Phil.

“When you announced this, people online, they weren’t happy.”

Alex added: “Yeah, and you didn’t see this right at the top of the show, but it seems that Phillip, he sent us an exclusive video and he’s equally as shocked.”

A video from Phillip, 59, then played out to viewers.

The presenter looked visibly upset as he addressed Holly’s new show.

In a mocked serious tone, he said: “Wow, that happened quickly. Break up for the summer and the next thing I know… is you’re with another man.

I’m obviously devastated.

“Okay, okay, it’s fine! I’m obviously devastated, but I want the dog and the CD collection!”

Thankfully, Holly saw the funny side of Phil’s message.

She giggled: “That’s amazing! Do you know what, I’d love to say I’ve traded him in for a younger model… but that’s not the case with Bradley Walsh.”

In addition, Holly added: “No, it’s not happening, no one’s being traded in I’ve got enough love in my heart for these two men one on the ITV one on the BBC.

“I’m the sandwich in the middle!”

Meanwhile, Holly and Bradley’s show starts on Saturday 24th July at 6pm on BBC One.
