Ulrika Jonsson brands Phillip Schofield ‘arrogant’ as she asks 'what about his poor wife?'

Ulrika Jonsson, 55, has reached out to support her friend Kerry Katona, 42, while also asking after Phillip Schofield's estranged wife Stephanie Lowe.

The Swedish TV presenter claimed Phillip's behaviour has been “arrogant” and “toxic” following his departure from This Morning and recent bombshell revelations.

Last month, Phillip, 61, confirmed he was resigning from ITV after he admitted to having an affair with a younger male production assistant whilst working on the show.

Since then, the ex-daytime TV presenter broke his silence in a tell-all interview with Amol Rajan.

In the emotional chat for the BBC, he discussed his mental health and revealed that he had “lost everything”.

In the wake of the recent exposé, Kerry and Ulrika have both shared their unfiltered thoughts via social media.

On Friday June 2, the former Atomic Kitten singer shared a short clip from Phillip's BBC interview with her 816,000 Instagram followers and wrote: “This is exactly how I felt after the interview he did with me!

“If I didn’t have my children I’d have killed myself. Things need to change drastically at ITV!

“Nobody (sic) reached out to me after the interview or asked me what bipolar was, or what medication I was on.”

The star continued to write: “4 people from Love Island have killed themselves, including Caroline Flack!

“To EVERYONE who’s involved with this I really hope that they are ALL getting the right support!!!”

Supporting Kerry and Phillip's wife, whom he had confessed to cheating on with the ITV runner while they were still married, Ulrika commented on the post: “It’s all about him… What about his poor wife in all this #arrogant #toxic”.

It comes after Kerry appeared on This Morning back in 2008, where she was accused of slurring her words live on air by Phillip himself.

Phillip apologised to her later after it was clarified that Katona was experiencing side effects from taking medication to manage her bipolar disorder.

Schofield stepped down from This Morning last month, as he revealed he had been having an affair with a colleague.

Following his exit, he issued a statement to the Daily Mail. He said that he met his former lover “when he was a teenager and was asked to help him get into television".

He then went on to say that after the pair started working together, their relationship “became more than just a friendship” but the affair “is now over".

At the time of the admission, Phillip's former co-host Holly Willoughby, 42, made a statement sharing she felt "hurt" after being “lied to” about the affair.

She wrote: “When reports of this relationship first surfaced, I asked Phil directly if this was true and was told it was not.

“It’s been very hurtful to now find out that this was a lie.”
