This Morning: Phil tries to make Holly laugh
Presenter Matthew Wright, 57, has opened up about the reported rift between This Morning co-hosts Holly Willoughby, 42, and Phillip Schofield, 61, today.
Rumours of issues have been circling and it’s been said that the presenting duo’s relationship “is on the rocks”.
However, Wright has since attempted to put the rumours to bed and has shared exactly what the atmosphere was like on the morning news show.
The TV personality was invited onto the show to debate the latest news headlines.
He was accompanied on the This Morning sofa by radio host and broadcast journalist, Nick Ferrari.
Following his stint, the former Wright Stuff host took to Twitter and wrote: “Not sure I believe half of what you read about Holly and Phil.
“Terrific atmosphere on set today as per.”
Since posting, This Morning viewers and fans of the former journalist have rushed to defend Willoughby and Schofield’s relationship.
One wrote: “Thank you! So fed up reading all the horrible, cruel comments about them. If they have ‘fallen out’ so what, it happens to the best of us. They still have great chemistry and I think they’re great presenters.”

However, not everyone believes that Wright is telling the whole truth.
Another Twitter user said: “Are you contracted to say that Matthew, never known you speak about other stuff that’s reported. I hope you don’t get shafted.”
A third commented: “Not like when a married couple have a huge fight but have to put on an Oscar-winning performance because they have guests coming round.”
A fourth wrote: “Well he would say that [he] was on the show today. A good friend of both, maybe?”
Despite the reports of Willoughby and Schofield being in the throes of a feud, the pair did not address the rumours when they returned to the small screen yesterday.
However, last week Schofield told The Sun that Holly was “his rock” and that the pair are “best of friends”.
He said: “As I have said before, Holly is my rock. We’re the best of friends — as always, she is an incredible support on screen, behind the scenes and on the phone.
“Holly has always been there for me, through thick and thin. And I’ve been there for her.”
“The last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us. My family went through a real ordeal,” the presenter added.
