Eamonn Holmes slams Philip Schofield. The former ITV presenter Eamonn Holmes has sparked a big reaction following his damning interview with GB News about Phillip Schofield.
Schofield, 61, resigned from ITV on Friday and was dropped by his talent agency YMU after admitting to an “unwise, but not illegal” affair.
His brother has also been jailed for a series of very serious sexual offences.
Following Schofield’s resignation, some former This Morning employees have come out to criticise the broadcaster.
Eammon Holmes and Philip Schofield had worked together for many years.

Mr Holmes seems to be the one who is going to town on his former colleague. Holmes left the show in 2021 and wasn’t exactly happy about the decision.
Now, in a tell-all interview, after it emerged publicly that Schofield was having an affair with a male staff member many years his junior and resigned from ITV, Holmes accused the TV network of a “cover-up” and said Schofield created a “toxic” atmosphere.
He alleged that “those in authority” had to have known what was going on.
“It’s a total cover-up,” he said.
Dan Wootton was asking the question to Holmes on GB News, when Holmes claimed that the younger male colleague would be “delivered from Philip’s London home” to the ITV studio in a car after having stayed at his London home “in cars paid for by ITV”.
Holmes also claimed that the affair was “known by virtually every staff member both on and off screen.
On Saturday, ITV said that it had investigated the rumours in early 2020, but Schofield “categorically” denied that it was true.
So it seems that Schofield leaving the show was the right thing to do, but it did leave people wondering what took them so long…
