Responding to Phillip Schofield's exit from This Morning, GB News host Eamonn Holmes says the presenter 'was sacked' rather than quit, and said that his co-presenter Holly Willoughby was complicit in his departure from the ITV show.
HOLLY WILLOUGHBY: All of this course follows the big announcement on Saturday from Phillip Schofield that he was stepping down.
EAMONN HOLMES: Oh, please, let's just stop this. He was sacked, right? All this nonsense about giving him-- "I've have decided to step down." I'm sure you did. Sure you did, here. Here's your P45, now step down.
HOLLY WILLOUGHBY: Is that stabbing him in the back?
EAMONN HOLMES: Yes. She made her name on the back of him.
HOLLY WILLOUGHBY: Yes, but if he's--
EAMONN HOLMES: She used false--
HOLLY WILLOUGHBY: --done something that doesn't want to be associated with, and she said, either he goes or I go, is that stabbing someone in the back, or is that saying, hang on I have my own professional--
EAMONN HOLMES: Yeah, it is stabbing in the back.
