Phil and Holly set to leave This Morning, claim bookies

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will be replaced on This Morning by the end of the year, according to bookies.

A flurry of bets have been placed on the presenting duo being unlikely to host in the New Year following the queue-gate scandal.

Ladbrokes is offering odds of 6/4 for Holly and Phil NOT to present This Morning as of 2023.

“Perhaps it’s time for a change on the This Morning sofas,” said Alex Apati of Ladbrokes.

“With Holly and Phil far from being in the British public’s good books right now, it could well be a case of New Year, new presenters, if the latest odds are anything to go by.”

Holly joined This Morning in 2009 to replace Fern Britton as Phil’s co-host.

Meanwhile Phil has been presenting the daytime show four times a week since 2002.

But the TV hosts caused controversy when they were seen skipping the queue to see the Queen lying in state, after some members of the public waited for up to 14 hours.

Holly, 41, and Phil, 60, said they “understood” the backlash – but insisted they would “never skip a queue”.
