Eammon Holmes has been slammed by an ITV big-wig over his comment about Phillip Schofield.
ITV chief executive Dame Carolyn McCall describing the allegations as ‘defamatory’.
The boss of ITV has hit back at the accusations made by Eamonn Holmes about ITV, describing the allegations as ‘defamatory’.
As most people are aware Phillip Schofield quit This Morning.
He admitted he lied about having an affair with a younger runner working on the programme,
Eammon holmes was very quick to slam Schofield.
Here is a bit of it, a hint of bitterness? Surely not…
Despite explaining in the session that Phillip Schofield and the runner, referred to as ‘Person X’, were questioned on several occasions about whether there was anything going on between them – which they both were said to have denied.
The ITV boss slams Eamonn Holmes in the session saying…
‘For instance, Eamonn Holmes said in a tweet that Phillip Schofield “has finally been caught out, but he’s not the only guilty party.
“Four high members of ITV management knew the sort of man he was, and never once took action to prevent him controlling or taking advantage of young people.” That’s an extraordinary tweet to come out with and I would imagine extremely damaging. You must have been surprised to receive that.’
Dame Carolyn then clarified: ‘We didn’t receive it, it was on Twitter. Don’t look at Twitter.’
The ITV boss then continued: ‘I think it’s probably… it’s actually defamatory, never mind anything else. But of course we wouldn’t say that, because it would just inflame the situation.’
