Holly Willoughby speaks out on Phillip Schofield’s behaviour
Holly Willoughby, co-host of This Morning, has spoken publicly for the first time about her feelings towards Phillip Schofield’s behaviour. Schofield recently left the show after admitting to lying about an affair with a younger member of the show’s staff. Willoughby expressed feeling « shaken, troubled and let down » by the situation, but also acknowledged the toll it has taken on Schofield’s mental health. She called for healing and wellbeing for everyone involved.
Concerns for the wellbeing of those involved
The situation has raised concerns for the wellbeing of those involved, with former resident doctor Dr Ranj Singh and former presenter Eamonn Holmes both making allegations about the culture behind the scenes at the programme. ITV’s chief executive, Carolyn McCall, has been called to a parliamentary committee to answer questions about the broadcaster’s approach to safeguarding and complaint handling. The broadcaster has also instructed an external review of the facts surrounding Schofield’s departure.
As This Morning moves forward without Schofield, Willoughby expressed her hope for finding strength in each other and returning to the warmth and magic the show holds. The situation has been difficult for everyone involved, but it is important to prioritize healing and wellbeing. It remains to be seen what the external review will uncover and what changes will be made to ensure a safe and healthy work environment for all involved.
