Although she didn’t reference the news directly, Amanda shared a celebratory flexing emoji on her social media page shortly after the news was announced.
Phillip confirmed on Saturday afternoon that he had agreed with ITV he would part ways with This Morning with immediate effect.
“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,” he said.
“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 said of her colleague’s exit: “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.”
Amanda and Phillip previously co-hosted This Morning together while Holly was on maternity leave way back in 2015.
While the pair appeared to get on well on screen, it was reported they’d had a falling out in 2018 amid rumours Phillip had pushed to co-present with Rochelle Humes rather than Amanda when Holly took time off This Morning.
