Holly Willoughby removes Phillip Schofield from her Twitter following rumours of a feud between the pair
| Last updated
Holly Willoughby has removed a reference to Phillip Schofield from her Twitter bio amid rumours that they are barely speaking.
The ITV duo first teamed up on screen to present Dancing on Ice in 2006 before taking over the This Morning studio in 2009.
They became known as pals off camera and always had the love and support of the public until last year during queue-gate where they were accused of jumping the queue to see the late Queen Elizabeth II lying in state.
Willoughby also supported her pal when he came out as gay in 2020, saying, as they discussed his news live on air: "I've never been more proud of my friend than I am today."
The Sun newspaper recently reported that the pair’s friendship had ‘cooled’, with body language expert saying there was evidence of tension during their show on Thursday (11 May).
Schofield commented on the claims of the pairs alleged rocky relationship saying that they've been not speaking, telling the outlet that the last few weeks ‘haven’t been easy’ for them due to a number of reasons – including Willoughby being ill and his brother being convicted of child sex offences.
In a statement, Schofield said: “As I have said before, Holly is my rock.
“We’re the best of friends — as always, she is an incredible support on screen, behind the scenes and on the phone.
"Holly has always been there for me, through thick and thin. And I’ve been there for her.
“The last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us.”
Fans of the pair have noticed that Willoughby’s Twitter bio has changed and a reference to Schofield is no longer there.
Her previous Twitter bio made reference to a ‘Twitter legend’ AKA her co-presenter and friend. She created an account in 2009 – the same year she joined the hit ITV morning show – and included the bio: “I was introduced to this by a Twitter legend".
However, her Twitter bio now reads: "Broadcaster, Founder of Wyldemoon, Brand ambassador for Marks & Spencer and Garnier, Author of Reflections."
One Twitter user, who kept a screenshot of Willoughby's old Twitter bio, shared the picture on social media and said: "Ah yes, I wasn't dreaming."
While another fan wrote: "Loads of newspaper reports overnight that they've both fallen out and don't talk anymore. Holly's also removed the mention of Phil from her twitter bio."
