After 21 years Phillip Schofield is out at This Morning. According to the formal announcement, the T.V hosts departure comes just after some on set and internal drama had begun to explode amongst the show.
“I have always been proud to cover fascinating stories on This Morning. But recently, This Morning itself has become the story’ a statement reads.
“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.
“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. I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me – especially This Morning’s amazing viewers – and I’ll see you all for the Soap Awards next month.”
