Amanda Holden’s Previous Criticism of Phillip Schofield
Amanda Holden has previously criticized Phillip Schofield, claiming that he had “cost” her a presenting role on This Morning.
Schofield, 61, defended himself, expressing hope that his fans would know him better.
Holden has openly expressed her dislike of Schofield, blaming him for hindering her opportunity to host the flagship show while Holly Willoughby was away in Australia for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Holden believed she had secured the temporary hosting role, but it was ultimately given to former pop star Rochelle Humes, 29.
Schofield dismissed any involvement in the decision as “malicious gossip.”
Several users commenting on Amanda’s Instagram post showed support, with one stating, “No Holden back for sure – YES AMANDA,” and another suggesting, “You would make a good replacement.”
