Viewers brand hungover Holly and Phil “hypocrites”

This Morning hosts accused Gemma Collins of being unprofessional lat week

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield turned up to present This Morning a little worse for wear after Tuesday night’s National Television Award win.

The show scooped the gong for Best Daytime for the ninth year running and the presenters celebrated with a drink or several.

But as they turned up for work late and joked about being hungover, fans at home were less than impressed – especially as they’d branded Gemma Collins unprofessional just last week.

After Gemma reportedly left Dancing On Ice, which Holly and Phil also present, early, and kept everyone waiting during rehearsals, Holly said that although she loved Gemma “there needs to be a little bit of professionalism that comes into any work you do. Just a little pride in your work. You just shouldn’t do that.”

But while many fans at home agreed with Holly at the time, after today’s hungover antics people think she’s being a little hypocritical.

Venting their fury on Twitter they called Holly out for it.

Although many didn’t reference the Gemma incident directly, they were also sick of Holly and Phil’s hungover behaviour.

One even declared it poor taste given they cover serious subjects such as alcoholism on the show.

The bad behaviour began in 2016 after the presenting pair turned up wearing the same clothes from the night before after winning the award.

In 2017 they vowed to get tattoos instead of drinking, but that promise never materialised. And last year both Holly and Phil struggled to get through the show.

Today’s episode saw Phil a lot worse off than Holly as he tried to maintain his composure while the Hairy Bikers cooked a full English breakfast pizza for them.
