Eamonn Holmes hits back after he’s accused of ‘Phil and Holly witch-hunt’

GB News presenter Eamonn Holmes, 63, hit out at a fan on Instagram, after he was criticised for “trading insults” with his former This Morning co-stars.

The journalist, who used to present the ITV show on Fridays with his wife Ruth Langsford, 63, has not held back in his criticism of This Morning host Phillip Schofield, 61.

It comes after Phillip is said to have grown apart from his co-presenter Holly Willoughby, 42, despite the pair being known for their excellent on-screen chemistry.

Eamonn took to his Instagram yesterday to share a snap of himself at the British Airways check-in with his 780,000 followers.

He also wrote that he “needs a bit of Additional these days…” following his recent health woes.

“You’ve got no axe to grind, no angle no hidden agenda - in my experience, you’ve always just called it how you find it. Plus, you love westerns and have the same doctor as me.” (sic)

Lesley added: “Looking good Eamonn and totally trust your opinion on Smugfield. You know the man himself. And say it how it is.

“You and Ruthie were the best presenters. And still miss you both. But least see you on gbnews. Take care.” (sic)

While Julie laughed: “Think Eamon obsessed with Phillip. Have a nice holiday and forget about them now he will still be here when you get back.” (sic)

Eamonn, who has previously been critical of Phillip in particular, launched a blistering attack on his former This Morning co-stars during his Monday show.

Referring to Sunday night's BAFTA TV Awards, he quipped: “I think there should have been a special award for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for best actors.

“They may or may not be together on the telly today. He's brought in lawyers, she's brought in a PR team.

“The public surely will suss that there's no chemistry, that it's a broken fit between the two of them and that This Morning does not depend on who presents it.

He continued: “It's an institution, it will carry on no matter who presents it and anyone can check the viewing figures, there's no difference between whether they present it or anyone else.”

Express.co.uk contacted Phillip and ITV at the time for comment.
