Phillip Schofield and Eamonn Holmes row: This Morning’s Lisa Snowdon breaks silence

She hosts fashion segments on the ITV daytime series

Phillip Schofield came under fire from Eamonn Holmes earlier today – and now it appears Lisa Snowdon has given her backing to the axed This Morning star.

Lisa reacted on Instagram after Eamonn insisted he had “to set the record straight”.

Earlier today (Saturday February 19) it was reported Eamonn branded show bosses “sly” following his departure from the ITV series.

And this morning Eamonn indicated he had “no regrets” as he told fans he was in a “reflective mood”.

Several broadcasters went on to comment on the veteran presenter’s post, with many offering their support and best wishes.

Among them was BBC newsreader Huw Edwards, A Place in the Sun presenter Amanda Lamb and ex Loose Women panellist Saira Khan, alongside Lisa.

“But said what had to be said to set the record straight.”

In the same interview, Eamonn took a dig at former This Morning co-star Phillip Schofield, labelling him “very passive-aggressive”.

Lisa indicated her support for Eamonn’s Insta post with a “raising hands” emoji and red heart emoji in the comments section.

The “raising hand” emoji is used in a celebratory manner, and is regarded as a positive emoji.

How did other Instagram users react?

Huw, however, did appear to respond specifically to comments made by Eamonn.

Eamonn, 62, had insisted: “I may be male and pale but I’m still at the top of my game.”

And Huw, 60, wrote: “You certainly are at the top of your game my friend.”

So proud of you and everything you stand for!

Eamonn replied, with a thumbs up emoji: “Appreciate that from you my friend. Thank you for saying so.”

Eamonn also responded to words left by Saira.
