Eamonn Holmes has made another subtle dig at Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield following his scathing rants.

The GB News presenter, 63, who is married to Loose Women star Ruth Langsford, has been pretty vocal about his thoughts on Phil’s exit after the rumoured ‘fallout’ between the This Morning hosts.

Having previously called Phil, 61, and Holly, 42, ‘actors’, and liking a social media post about ‘red flags’, Eamonn then took to Twitter to reflect on a ‘good day’ after Phil announced his departure.

He’s now made another dig, by liking a Tweet responding to a clip from GB News, in which Eamonn claimed Phil was ‘sacked’.

The Tweet read: ‘Well said @EamonnHolmes at last a presenter who says what everyone else is [and know] the crap they’re told to!!

‘An as for @thismorning top stories if that was presenters on another channel it be 1st!

‘But nope sayin nuthin! An @hollywills early hols convenient eh!’

ITV have maintained the host ‘stepped down’, though his future on programmes including Dancing On Ice has yet to be confirmed.

‘Oh please just stop this. He was sacked. All this nonsense of “I’ve decided to step down”. I’m sure you did – here’s your P45, now step down,’ Eamonn ranted.

‘Why do we propagate this language, “I’ve decided to step down”. And she says: “Oh, the couch will not be the same without him being there”.

‘Well, she wanted him not there. So what is she moaning about the couch not feeling the same for? They deserve each other I suppose.’

This comes after it was announced Holly would be taking an early half term break from This Morning, with the likes of Alison Hammond and Craig Doyle stepping in.

Phil announced he was stepping back on Saturday May 20, saying: ‘I have always been proud to cover fascinating stories on This Morning. But recently, This Morning itself has become the story.

‘Throughout my career in TV – including the very difficult last few days – I have always done my best to be honourable and kind.

‘I understand that ITV has decided the current situation can’t go on, and I want to do what I can to protect the show that I love.

‘So I have agreed to step down from This Morning with immediate effect, in the hope that the show can move forward to a bright future.’

Holly added: ‘It’s been over 13 great years presenting This Morning with Phil and I want to take this opportunity to thank him for all of his knowledge, his experience and his humour.

‘The sofa won’t feel the same without him.’

Phil’s departure came after it was reported they were ‘barely speaking’ behind-the-scenes and that their relationship had ‘cooled’.

While they have continued putting on a united front on the This Morning sofa, and Phil recently insisted they are ‘still the best of friends’, rumours have continued swirling, with reports escalating to claims that Phil is ‘refusing to quit This Morning’, as one source called the situation a ‘runaway train that cannot be stopped’.

Meanwhile, a recent insider had alleged that Holly contemplated quitting the programme, saying that ‘by removing herself from the situation she could protect herself better’.

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV1.
